We're not saying that NFTs will save the world, but for a bit, it can go towards helping a part of it. We get it. We get why the eyeroll. At a time where we're possibly on the brink of war, it's crazy to think how fashion and art, especially digitally, can be anything beyond frivolous. Yet if you think about it, they have the potential to be the right agents of change. It's expected that traditional infrastructures and institutions are under attack in an invasion, making cryptocurrency more useful a medium.
Not to mention the smart contracts attached to NFTs ensuring a royalty from each secondary sale in perpetuity goes directly to the charity as well. Working together closely with Vogue Ukraine, Vogue Singapore has set up an initiative with six Ukrainian and Ukrainian-based artists and designers. The exclusive collection includes work from Anna October, Anton Belinskiy, DressX, Gunia Project, Ienki Ienki and Gudu; where each NFT will be available in 50 editions at 0.5ETH.
All proceeds will be donated to the charity Save The Children Ukraine.
