The brands and designers, along with a slew of fashion devotees will converge at the Decentraland’s hip new ‘Luxury Fashion District’ for the event.
The Metaverse Fashion Week will be kicked off by London retail giant, Selfridges, and the show will also mark the launch of the brand’s flagship metaverse store.

There will be a Community Precinct presented by Metaparty and virtual real estate marketplace, Parcel.so. This will feature a multi-layered experience including mini-games, parkour, a relaxation floor and a fashion show. The latter will feature the best-of-the-best from the Decentraland wearables designer community.
