ALGARVE, PORTUGAL, June 1st, 2023 – BlockDown Festival is thrilled to announce a strategic partnership with the Metaverse Fashion Council to enhance the festival's fashion content and create a more immersive and interactive experience for attendees. This collaboration will bring together the world of fashion and Web3, featuring events such as the Metaverse Fashion Show and a unique A.I.-driven fashion hackathon powered by Style.AI, Metaverse Fashion Councils' new powerful, domain-specific artificial intelligence model.
The Metaverse Fashion Council, the biggest community of business, VC funds, and creatives, known for its innovative initiatives at the intersection of fashion and technology, will also work closely with BlockDown Festival to organize fashion-related conference content, discussion topics, and high-profile speakers from leading fashion brands. The collaboration will also extend to the festival's digital fashion gallery, offering an impressive showcase of digital fashion pieces.
"We are delighted to partner with the Metaverse Fashion Council to bring an unparalleled fashion experience to our attendees," said Erhan Korhaliller, Founder of BlockDown Festival. "This collaboration underscores our commitment to connecting the worlds of Web3 and the creative industries, and we believe that the integration of fashion and technology will create an extraordinary experience at the festival."
The partnership also includes the organization of a Metaverse "STYLE A.I.'s got talent" show utilizing the community based ai foundation model Style.AI, which will add an 'America's Got Talent' style competition to the event, offering participants an exciting opportunity to demonstrate their fashion creativity in a fun and innovative format. Using Style.AI, participants will be tasked to create 3D fashion assets from AI prompts and deploy them live directly onto the blockchain. Spectators can see the AI fulfill the request live on stage and hear feedback and scores from chosen fashion industry judges.
"We are bringing mass adoption to the open metaverse and a partnership with BlockDown Festival is an exciting opportunity to immerse thousands of cool creatives and young business leaders to reshaping the world of fashion," said Anna Karenina, Initiator at Metaverse Fashion Council.
