It has been reported that the famed fashion photographer noted how wide the gap is between the industries, but asserted that both need each other. With 8,000 unique artworks created in collaboration with influencer Jazzelle, this is a collection that will go down in fashion and Web3 history.
However, Nick Knight began his ground-breaking company SHOWstudio in 2000 to bring the potential of video to the fashion world. Now, he wants to do the same with NFTs. With the Ikon-1 collection of 8,000 NFTs that have over 200 attributes, Knight is proving that the tools of Web3 work for fashion. He believes that they are essential.
“It is up to the artist to make this digital art as soulful as a painting.”
The report said that in bringing Ikon-1 to life, Knight has partnered with more than 30 creatives. In particular, Knight teamed up with Jazzelle (also known as Uglyworldwide) to build the avatar that the works are based around.
Likewise, Jazzelle is known for manipulating the image and taking an active role in the creative process. According to Knight, all creators involved in the project have been compensated and the main creative partners will receive a revenue share.
Nick Knight believes that Web3 tools need to be in the hands of the artists. Artists build the experiences that the masses come to populate.
Thus, with this first drop of 8,000 NFTs, Knight is making the case that fashion has a place in Web3. One that may even go down as iconic.
