Digital fashion business Brand New Vision (BNV) has unveiled its inaugural in-house fashion wearables NFT collection, offering exclusive access to BNV's digital fashion ecosystem. The first drop of 1,000 digital eyewear NFTs marks the brand's vision of taking fashion into Web3. The launch of the NFT collection "The Family of Gs" is in the wake of its US$4 million Series A funding round led by Animoca Brands. According to the brand, The first drop of 1,000 digital eyewear NFTs "The Gs" offers a range of utility and exclusive access to BNV's digital fashion ecosystem. With collaborations, priority whitelist, and VIP entry to fashion-focused metaverse experiences.

"We believe that digital wearables provide multi-dimensional opportunities to engage in Web3, helping brands and consumers alike navigate the colliding realms of fashion, NFTs, and virtual worlds," said Richard Hobbs, founder of BNV said.

He added, "Together with the family of Gs and our commitment to building a true fashion-first metaverse, we are looking to become the utility-creation gateway for brands entering the metaverse, and for digital natives searching for the next big thing in fashion NFTs."

Offering only 1,000 NFTs, "The Gs" will be the rarest and most valuable drop in the "Family of Gs" collection with two additional drops planned for later this year. The brand added that BNV's fashion community will soon evolve into a fashion-first metaverse economy with unique play-to-earn innovations and the introduction of the "ERC-20 fa$h" token.

Moreover, the virtual ecosystem will be built to bring out the full potential of fashion NFTs, including the introduction of staking, with The Gs producing the highest yield among all wearables in the Family of Gs collection. Holders will have access to a private "fa$h" token sale, increased voting power in community treasury activities, and discount opportunities on future NFT drops. Additionally, there will be metaverse wearable airdrops to holders for Decentraland and The Sandbox.
