About Jason Wu’s NFT of Michelle Obama’s Inaugural gown
Jason Wu has just teamed up with Dress X to release a virtual version (NFT) of the 2009 inaugural gown of the former US first lady– Michelle Obama.
The real-life version of the dress is made of original ivory silk and organza creation. And it is currently at the National Museum of American history in Washington DC.
The digital version of the ball gown will be available for sale on the DressX retail platform. Furthermore, the holder of the NFT can then wear the gown virtually in a photograph.
The co-founder of DressX– Natalia Medenova– in a statement said that this is a good way to explain the concept of digital collectibles to those who understand luxury but do not quite understand technology.
He also added that there is much value in digital assets that will come to light in the future. And this is why the platform is making it easy to understand this concept.
The brand also wants to introduce a whole new audience to the world of Jason.
Owning the Digital Inaugural Gown Gives Access to Amazing Benefits
The holder of the digital replica of Michelle Obama’s 2009 inaugural ball gown will have access to exclusive rewards.
The holder of the virtual will get two tickets to Jason Wu’s upcoming New York Fashion Week Show that will take place on the 10th of September and also an opportunity to meet and greet with the designer.
The fashion designer– Jason Wu– commented saying that fashion is evolving and he has chosen to evolve with it.
He said that he has never limited himself to a single form of fashion and always finds new ways to express his creativity.
He is also excited that his inaugural NFT will allow the world to represent a piece of history remarkably.
The dress will not be resold or auctioned and will be one of its kind just like the gown in the museum.
Co-founder, Daria Shapovalova, added that the inauguration was a historical fashion moment and should be part of the blockchain because it will stay there permanently.
The concept of NFT is progressing in the world of fashion and is opening the door for a larger audience to gain entrance.
According to Mendova, fashion is something that the tech or blockchain industry cannot relate much to because it is exclusive.
NFTs have now opened up the fashion world to a whole new audience and are an amazing tool to unify the worlds of fashion and technology.
