2021 set the stage for mainstream adoption of NFTs with Nike acquiring RTFKT the "creators of virtual sneakers and collectibles, merging realities in fashion and gaming." and Adidas Into The Metaverse collaboration with BAYC. These fashion focused partnerships have ignited curiosity amongst many as well as giving confidence to those newly immersed in the NFT space.
With mass NFT integration imminent, projects are continuously striving to upscale, seeking superior talent to develop and deliver unequalled projects that both reign supreme and last the test of time. One such project that is ready to take the digital catwalk by storm is C-01 who "plan to become pioneers for the evolution of fashion in the metaverse". A bold vision requires robust roadmapping and a powerhouse team that can not only unite a community, but adhere to expectations.
C-01 boasts globally renowned talent including Gilberto Zaragoza, master sculptor and 3D concept artist and the lead 3D designer for the C-01 project. For the past decade, Zaragoza AKA "Soren" has been working alongside multinational entertainment and media conglomerate franchises such as Warner Bros, Disney’s Marvel, Netflix, and Bandai.
French luxury fashion designer Luis Monteiro compliments "Soren" with champion craftsmanship worthy of Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent, and Chloé. More recently, Monteiro has been dedicated to Louis Vuitton’s LVMH group, working alongside Virgil Abloh as stylist and meticulously helped C-01 design all the clothing, materials, and accessories for the collection.
C-01 told BitGoss "We took more than two months to create each of the facial expressions of our 3D models to make them look as natural and as human as possible. We then designed each of their clothing – the materials and textures – with our modelist and stylist Luis Monteiro. Our goal was to go beyond the boundaries of everything made so far and provide an ultra-realistic look through detailed clothing and fabrics. We wanted to make the avatars look like real-life models, but for the metaverse."
NFT and fashion enthusiasts who appreciate C-01s intricately delicate digital designs will also benefit from exclusive holder utility by "gaining access to the forefront of evolution in the fashion industry in the metaverse." Forget play to earn, C-01 aims to "create exclusive digital collections with well-known clothing brands reserved for C-01 holders..." and have "decided to split the revenue made with the fashion industry directly with our community and core holders. The money earned will be given to our holders in terms of tokens, exclusive branded NFT drops, and physical merchandise drops from all our fashion partners."
With a limited collection of 8,888 NFTs, stunning art and exclusive utility benefits, I am confident this project will mint out in a matter of minutes.
