Virgil Abloh, former Creative Director at Louis Vuitton and Founder of Off-White announced that he’ll be designing virtual clothes.
While this sounds a bit absurb at first, keep in mind that games like Fortnite makes more than a billion dollars a year selling strictly cosmetic items.
As the Metaverse grows bigger and bigger, our online identities are evolving. It reminds me of Miis from the Nintendo Wii. I’d create these Miis or avatars to represent me in video games or I can interact with my friends Miis.
I wouldn’t be surprised if this idea of an online avatar gains traction. And if it does, a second order effect would be online marketplaces selling virtual clothes.
