Alber’s legacy turned into NFTs
Apart from a showstopping tribute, AZ Factory also launched a unique NFT project. “NFTs have gotten exponentially more popular in the last few months, so we thought about how we could make Alber’s legacy eternal, unique but also available to the wider public while remaining exclusive. Alber’s unique Designs turned into NFTs connected to the limited edition garments was the answer,” the AZ Factory team tells us.
Photographer Oriane Verstraeten was backstage to capture this special moment.
