A collection created by world-renowned designer Ilja Visser

On the 8th of March 2022, world-renowned haute couture designer, Ilja Visser and the first full service NFT company in the MENA region, SkyneNFT will launch the world’s first abaya NFT in the UAE. The NFT collection includes 50 unique abayas, that represent a landmark moment in digital-exclusive couture for Arab fashion. The unique abaya NFT is traceable, tradeable, wearable, and a collectible piece of modest digital fashion. The launch event will be hosted in collaboration with Dubai Global Connect.

Ilja Visser and SkyneNFT have designed the most advanced fashion NFT collection that seeks to empower women worldwide by featuring entirely unique runway items dedicated to Arab fashion. Encouraging women to be unapologetic, strong and comfortable in their own beauty, these exclusive NFTs embody the pinnacle of women’s high-end fashion.

Dutch-born designer Ilja Visser first launched her namesake couture collection in 2005. International recognition came after Ilja Visser showed her collection at Amsterdam Fashion Week. Ilja Visser made her official debut in the highest fashion league when she got invited by the Fédération Française de la Couture in Paris to present her Fall-Winter 15/16 couture collection INGENIUM EXISTERE on their official haute couture calendar. World-famous people bought her couture: Lady Gaga, Kourtney Kardashian, Avril Lavigne, Alicia Keys and Janet Jackson to name a few.


“In the metaverse, where creative aspects are limitless, I consider bringing both physical and metaphysical aspects together in a feminine, nonchalant undertone. With the results of this ‘urban cool’ abaya collection, I bring creativity to a higher level. I consider it an honour to project my creative vision on such a historical garment and to bring this vision into the digital world”.
