H&M – A unique Web3 experience for H&Mbeyond

Created by DEPT®, past Lovie Agency of the Year, for H&M, this entry is a finalist in the Business, Fashion & Retail category in Metaverse Individual (Web3, NFTs & Metaverse).

From DEPT®:

“How can we experience clothing when we can’t touch it or wear it? What added value does a digital experience offer visitors and customers? Together with our partner Journee – The Metaverse Company™, we explored solutions to these questions to develop a virtual, custom-fit world for H&M. In the H&M Virtual Showroom, content on H&M’s innovation topics and sustainability efforts are presented, alongside ‘information zones’, designed especially for the press or users interested in a conversation.”
