THE CANVAS

The Canvas transforms vacant spaces into marketplaces supporting the rise of global fashion brands addressing the Sustainable Development Goals.
Utilizing the immense number of vacant spaces around the world, they connect brands with retail real estate opportunities. The Canvas' Portal, their digital platform and e-commerce site, also serves as an operating system for over 200 brands and partners for communication, inventory management and content creation, today presenting: ANNAMARIAANGELIKA, GOT BAG, Jona B., Enie Label, Not Just Pajama.

During this WSM edition The Canvas presents an exciting NFT project named "DOWN TO EARTH".

The collaboration merges fashion and technology, uniting the handcrafted spacesuits of PSF’s Founder Cameron Smith’s firm with blockchain technology to help promote the democratization of access to space. The result is 2 unique spacesuits, in real life, but with NFT’s attached and able to be secured in a digital wallet through IYK’s unique chips. Syliva Heisel, the renowned technologist and 3D printing maven, connected IYK and The Canvas and consulted on the collaboration throughout. 

Cryptocurrency, through blockchain, has enabled millions around the world to have access to financial products and services.Cameron Smith’s Spacesuits aim to bring the same kind of open access to humans for outer space travel.

The title DOWN TO EARTH, The Canvas and Pacific Spaceflight consider the possibility that NFTs provide new ways to create, share and fund projects that will help put humans in space and explore new frontiers.
