When will the leaders, pioneers, and brave creators of Metaverse Fashion be ready to announce its sovereignty and independence from the old fashion system? The right answer to this question is:

  • When the new economy pioneers and metaverse inhabitants cease to be subjects of the Old World defined by need and necessity.
  • When we, creators, move beyond a zero-sum physical game dominated by:
  • gravity,
  • violence,
  • inflation money,
  • hypocritical communication and shallow buzzwords
  • excessive centralization
  • When creativity triumphs over marketing
  • When wealth and investments become accessible to the Youth.

The "founding fathers" of the old world, including the entire old fashion system, were exclusively men. To establish the basic principles of Metaverse Fashion, I propose that we establish a circle of “founding mothers.” I invite everyone interested in working on a thought experiment named the Declaration of Metaverse Fashion. Two Specific Points to Note.

Decent Respect:

As stated in the U.S. Declaration of Independence, "When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another... a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation." Respect for the achievements of the old fashion system and various Web3, blockchain, AI, and crypto solutions makes us deeply agnostic regarding specific fashion brands and tech solutions, emphasizing the values of decentralization, community, investment, and sustainability.

Avoiding Past and Men's Mistakes:

The second important distinction from the "founding fathers' Declaration" is to avoid the inequality and controversy of slavery (some of them were slave owners themselves) and ensure universal rights for all, not just their own kind.

Today, the role of "slave labor" is taken on by AI, its solutions, entities, models, influencers, and community participants. By combining the philosophy (not just the rapidly developing technology) of fashioning our Selves with the help of blockchain and AI, direct ownership of metaverse assets, self-learning, and sustainable development, we should recognize these Selves (even in the form of Gen AI and blockchain entities) as independently living beings with full rights. They can be active community members, invest, vote, and make decisions.
At the MFC, we actively discuss hiring various AI personalities to perform important, routine jobs. They undoubtedly need the culture of fashion in the metaverse to establish and express their Selves as independent creatures. So they are even your potential customers.

I hope that we can collaborate creatively and present the Declaration at the Metaverse Fashion Week 2024 opening ceremony on November 20.
