Unpacking the Metaverse’s 2023 Fashion Week

Decentraland's Fashion Week

Balenciaga, Adidas, Vogue. And no, I’m not listing swanky brands for the heck of it. All these of folks decided to jump aboard the metaverse bandwagon, they were all a part of its fashion week. 

The Metaverse’s fashion week took place in Decentraland from March 28 until March 31. It featured over 60 brands, games you could play, and virtual clothes you could buy.

However, the event wasn’t a complete success. In 2022, this event had 108,000 attendees. In 2023, it only had 26,000 players. What’s more, the amount of concurrent fashion week attendees peaked at around 1000. If the metaverse wants a viable fashion week, then such numbers need to be higher.

This shift comes as more and more people are questioning if metaverses are financially viable futures. The trend of hyping Decentreland might be over, and ChatGPT reigns supreme.
