MVFW will also host various conferences, although Decentraland did not specify whether they will take the form of video-conferences projected on a screen located in the virtual universe, as last year. The conferences’ topics will range from retail in the metaverse to fashion’s ‘digi-physical’ future, to tips on how to become meta-outfit designers, and the blockchain’s role in authenticating products in the metaverse.

MVFW’s calendar will be mostly busy with parties, in which very real DJs will get virtual avatars dancing, and commercial/marketing initiatives. Tommy Hilfiger and Coach


DKNY will present its new virtual store concept, with its New York vibe. Jewellery brand Ben Bridge has promised that its first virtual store will feature exclusive wearables. Similarly, Balenciaga

Another metaverse, Over, is joining MVFW this year, and announced it will stage a hybrid event in Milan’s piazza Duomo on March 31. Several presentations will showcase collaborations such as Balmain x Space Runners’ Unicorn, Ilona Song x VoguePinko
