Our vision and ambition

The Dream Assembly Base Camp Cohort Two program will focus on key areas we believe are critical to growing the opportunity for Web3 in luxury, including: luxury data infrastructure, community tools, digital fashion experience, self representation and sustainability.

“Web3 technology can have a huge impact on the fashion industry and luxury commerce, creating a new forefront of identity expression, helping redefine a deeper experience for consumers.

Digital, blockchain-based solutions also have the potential to positively address the biggest issues within the industry such as the counterfeit of luxury products, pollution through fast fashion consumption or waste created by design prototyping.”
