F₃Manifesto has started teaching weekly web3 fashion design classes at the School of Visual Arts New York City.
The students are being taught directly how to use CLO3D & Blender for fashion design and also the core principles of NFTs, web3 and the metaverse.
I’ve always hated school, and never much liked or got along with almost any of my teachers. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I never accepted their ever smaller boxes and total lack of genuine interest and curiosity in the actual class material.
Learning was always been an outside the box kind of thing for me.
The funny thing about teaching students new to web3 fashion design though, as surprising as it is for me, I actually kind of like it.
Probably because it’s not really about just the tools themselves, as powerful as they are.
Rather, it’s welcoming in a whole new group of eager and curious minds budding with potential talent and walking them through the basics of identifying good questions to ask and how to breakdown the right problems into smaller and more manageable components, so that they can think through what they want to accomplish effectively.
The super interesting part of the material for me and the students is when we get in deep to all the different ways 3D and digital fashion design relates to primary fabrication in web3, and being able to have foundational familiarity with the tools that are most empowering both for creative freedom and their ability to generate wealth.
Super excited to see the ranks of the web3 fashion revolution grow and play an expanded role teaching the skills that they need to take on the fashion industry grow.
