NEW YORK, Sept. 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — On September 11th, Tommy Hilfiger’s Tommy Factory Fall ‘22 Runway Show blended IRL and URL worlds including an activation that allowed guests to receive a free NFT created by the new app-based, Web3 entertainment launchpad Rove. For the first-time ever at a Fashion Week event, all 2,000 guests had the opportunity to claim an exclusive ‘Tommy Factory’ NFT, which featured a moving image of Tommy Hilfiger taking a Polaroid picture. The partnership signifies the Tommy Hilfiger brand’s continued connection and engagement within the digital community.
To retrieve the NFT, attendees were able to tap their phone to a near-field communication (NFC) sticker — a tag used to enable the digital authentication of physical items and experiences — which was integrated into the design on the walls of the show. This instantaneously created a mobile NFT wallet powered by Cupcake where guests could claim their own Tommy Factory NFT, regardless of their prior experience with blockchain technology. The Tommy Factory Runway Experience proves the model for how major brands can partner with Rove and Cupcake to merge their physical and digital worlds and reach their audience in a new and innovative way.
“The Fall ‘22 show was a multiverse experience. With Rove, we created the Tommy Factory NFT which all guests could receive through their phones in under a minute. I look forward to exploring web3 integration with the brand further.” — Tommy Hilfiger
