"Many people underestimate the value of digital items, because they think they cannot wear them or use them in the physical world. However, they seem to forget how much time they spend virtually--either on social media and in calls with colleagues or friends and how much time they spend in front of the mirror trying to look good physically, even though a virtual styling would have been enough." —Zuzanna Bastian, CEO and Founder of Jevels
On February 10th, Jevels and AURELIA + ICARUS will be speaking alongside digital fashion house, The Fabricant at New York Digital Fashion Week and will be hosting a workshop February 11th to discuss their physical to digital transformation collaboration.
The official launch of the The Metaverse Jewelry Box Starter Set will take place February 11th on Spatial, the metaverse event and gallery space.
