As we continue to progress and innovate our lifestyle, there are many ways now where virtual meets reality. From virtual games to other interactive online applications—it has come to the point where metaverse can be a platform to spread awareness for the creative and fashion industry. What’s good if creativity meets technology?

A total of 27 Vogue editions will participate in the “New Beginnings”—correlating fashion and technology through digital art. For Vogue Singapore, new beginnings are to explore new things and join the rise of metaverse as a market for all creatives.

Launching August 25, today is the first for Vogue Singapore as they introduce the unique print cover in the form of a QR code. The QR code will be the gateway to the two digital and animated covers made by local and international designers. Both of these covers are available for purchase as one-of-one NFTs.

“Fashion and innovation have always been at the heart of what we do at Vogue Singapore. With the global September issue theme of ‘New Beginnings,’ we took the bold step to venture into the metaverse—the destination for a new class of digital artists and designers”, says Norman Tan, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Singapore.

“With this issue, we aim to elevate storytelling and continue that dialogue between print and digital that we have championed since launch. We welcome readers to embark on this digitally-led journey to explore creative possibilities. With the release of the ‘New Beginnings’ NFTs, look forward to developing and expanding this emerging platform where fashion, art, and design can flourish,” adds Tan.
