Nouns 3D-Printed Fashion Collection Turns Heads at NFT Paris

Thousands of Web3 aficionados converged upon NFT Paris last weekend, and attendees at the Grand Palais Éphémère got an NFTIn addition to the exhibits and panels, there will be a fashion show that is based on this theme.

Danit Peleg, a fashion design who is open to new technologies, used the occasion to display her first collection 3D printed apparel. Nouns. Notable Ethereum The project launched in 2021 and auctions one NFT per day. It uses the funds to fuel community-driven and open-source intellectual property.

Peleg brought five outfits along to the conference. Each inspired by NFTs within the valuable profile picture (PFP) As well as the Nouns brand, this collection will be available. Many of the pieces feature the familiar, boxy Nouns glasses (or “Noggles”), as well as detailed recreations of some of the avatars that have been minted to date.

“I found inspiration in everything about Nouns, from the community to the NFT structure and the amazing things Nouns could do with their treasury,” Peleg told Decrypt This week. “I realized that the best way I can contribute to Nouns is by using my specific domain expertise in 3D printing and fashion.”

Each piece was created and printed using various 3D printing technologies. These include Polyjet, which allows for multiple colors and textures, and Multi Jet Fusion. Some pieces were printed with hinges between the Nouns characters. Others were glued using the printed pieces.

Peleg said that the project’s open-source, Creative Commons Zero (CC0). She was drawn in by the model. That approach means that anyone—even those who don’t own a Nouns NFT—can create and sell their own projects and products based on the brand. In fact, it’s encouraged: the NFT holders routinely fund projects using the treasury of funds from the daily auctions.

Nearly $45 Million worth of ETH currently sitting in the Nouns treasury, the project has funded a wide array of projects—from Comic books To TV pilots, float in this year’s Rose ParadeOther fashion ventures and even an appearance by Noggles Bud Light Super Bowl commercial.

Peleg was the victim in this case. Total funding of $140,000 To develop, build, and display the 3D-printed apparel. This was accomplished in three milestones. She said that developing trust with the community was key: “I started small, delivered value, and grew the support from the community—and then I got higher funding as trust was established.”

Peleg is well-known as a 3D printed fashion pioneer. Her Initial collectionThe video, which she made in 2015 as a student, became viral online. She followed up with A TED Talk This video has received nearly 2,000,000 views. Her work was also featured during the opening ceremony Rio Paralympics 2016.

When Decrypt spoke with pseudonymous Nouns founder 4156 in early February about the comics project, he said that Nouns was focused on “creating opportunities for people with very deep expertise within their own fields, to have a facility to collaborate with an open-source brand.” Peleg’s collection is another example of that approach in action.

Were 3D-printed Nouns apparel going to be available in the real world soon? Possibly—Peleg said she’d “love to take the collection around the world to showcase it,” and she’s considering an open edition NFT drop As for digital assets she’s already done with past 3D-printed fashion designs.
