Richard Quinn releases NFT to celebrate SS23 collection
Clearpay, the principal partner of London Fashion Week, has teamed up with Richard Quinn and the British Fashion Council, to offer members of the public a limited edition rose NFT.
The Richard Quinn x Clearpay: London Fashion Week In Bloom collaboration, including the limited edition rose NFT, is inspired by the giant roses that featured in Richard’s SS23 show in September.
A total of 50 NFTs will be available for purchase at £50 each from 9am on Saturday 8 October. 15 NFTs unlock an invitation for the customer and a guest to Richard Quinn’s party in Covent Garden.
At the event, the designer will unveil his favourite and most iconic looks to date and key pieces from his SS23 collection, including a selection from the 23 bespoke, made to order outfits he created in tribute to the Queen.
The final 35 NFTs come with a limited edition collection of accessories in an iconic Richard Quinn floral print created exclusively with Clearpay. The specially curated set includes a bucket hat, a scrunchie and a tote bag.
All proceeds of the NFT sales will be donated to the BFC Foundation, which supports the future growth and success of the British fashion industry by focusing on education, grant-giving and business mentoring.
