Fashion, NFT, and the Metaverse with Alexis Arragon and Florent Sroka

Do you remember those science fiction movies or novels where the virtual space was presented as a way to escape our physical reality? can dare to say real technology has surpassed those days! In fact, nowadays more brands and businesses are looking to get into this space, and the fashion industry isn’t the exception.

While there are still many questions surrounding this new trend, it is clear this fast-growing environment is developing new opportunities, ways of thinking, and undoubtedly shaping the newer generations.

Unless you’re part of Gen Z, it is likely this new virtual reality is a bit hard to grasp. But don’t worry! We promise you it’ll be much easier to understand after you listen to this conversation.

Help Neri welcome Alexis Arragon and Florent Sroka to the show.
Alexis is the managing director of Skinvaders, a next-generation platform for in-game branded skins and digital clothing.
Florent is the co-founder of In Rift, an end-to-end solution for brands to enhance digital presence.

In today’s episode, Neri and her guests cover a lot of ground.

They start out by talking about their journeys and what spurred them to work on the digital space. They also explain, in a very digestible way, the concepts of metaverse and NFTs to then delve into how the fashion world is navigating them and what they believe is going to happen in the coming years.
