These NFTs allow fashion brands to sell their unique digital asset, because their ownership can easily be proven with a blockchain based ledger. Hiroko Koshino has taken a somewhat different approach through launching NFT wearables of its clothes in collaboration with NOBORDER.z. This format enables the items to exist and be traded across the metaverse.
