Come ask a question about food, nutrition, and eating for the climate. We’re checking back in on the metaverse this week with Vogue Business’ senior innovation editor Maghan McDowell. For many, the hype surrounding NFTs, Web3, and the metaverse is beginning to feel overblown. Crypto is still firmly in its winter, and the stock price over at Meta continues to fall as Zuckerberg’s big bet on the metaverse isn’t delivering yet. But in the fashion industry there are signs of real disruption and innovation, with nearly every major luxury brand continuing to invest and partner to establish a presence in the digital realm. Does this mean fashion has just fallen harder for the metaverse?  Have a question for Christina, Rachel and Shilla?
