New Delhi, February 7: The year 2022 is about NFT fever, so it comes as no surprise that Indian fashion designers and the industry are embraces blockchain technology. The Metaverse will alter how we perceive and consume fashion.
Pankaj & Nidhi is one such brand that is breaking into the NFT space by releasing three exclusive digital artworks on India's most trusted NFT marketplace, WazirX, in collaboration with FDCI X Lakme Fashion Week.
With NFT technology expected to change how brands incorporate non-fungible tokens into their design and marketing strategies, the craze has been identified as a digital revolution responsible for shifting the fashion market in an unexpected direction. All three NFTs minted by Pankaj & Nidhi have an inherent, self-drawn symbolism - they were all conceived and designed in a circular form. The shape represents Earth, our beautiful but vulnerable planet.
The design elements in each are meant to evoke wonder and awe at nature's forces - and how art motifs (courtesy - The Rijksmuseum, Netherlands) coexist with ecological marvels to create a harmonious, thought-provoking emblem - to inspire us to be mindful of our resources and to do what we can to help.
