ROTATE and REMAIN: Digital fashion in the metaverse

July 9, 2024

ROTATE and REMAIN, two fashion brands under the Birger Christensen Collective, have ventured into the metaverse by designing a collection of avatar skins for the metaverse platform ‘Ifland’. The two brands are the first European-based fashion companies to design skins alongside fashion and lifestyle digital partner MOJOMOTO, placing both ROTATE and REMAIN at the forefront of digital and metaverse advancement.

Designing a collection of avatar skins

ROTATE and REMAIN launched their collection of avatar skins in 2023 on the metaverse platform Ifland in an exclusive partnership with SK Telecom, the leading ICT company in South Korea.  

When using the app, users are summoned into an ‘avatar dressing room’, where they can change their avatar looks with a large selection of clothing options created from the shoppable collections from ROTATE and REMAIN. Users will also be able to access exclusive ROTATE and REMAIN skins, designed just for the Ifland users to gain a unique and differentiated experience.

It is the next step in the exciting journey of fashion innovation and Web3, referring to the next stage of Internet development. The partnership displays a global awareness towards the evolving digital world, taking garments from both brands and immortalising them in the metaverse.

Sustainability and innovation in digital fashion‍

The partnership with SK Telecom is an important milestone in Birger Christensen’s sustainability agenda. ‘Innovation for good’ is part of Birger Christensen’s 5 key pillars which investigates circular business models and innovations that help to decrease impact and decouple growth from the use of new materials.‍

The collaboration was facilitated by Lifestyle & Design Cluster, the Danish national cluster for design, furniture & fashion, who work with digitalisation and transformation towards a more circular economy in the Danish lifestyle industry.

“The collaboration follows ROTATE’s hugely successful launch into Web3 during Copenhagen Fashion Week in August 2022 where we dropped an exclusive AR experience and NFTs of one of the SS23 dresses straight off the runway, selling out within minutes. This is the first foray into the digital sphere for REMAIN, and marks a historic moment for the brand.”
