How to Join BNV's Snap&Tweet Fashion Competition With AR

Jawara Alleyne's Blunt Dress was first seen on Rihanna in Dazed Magazine's 30th anniversary issue, then became an NFT in a BNV collab, and is now positioned as an AR filter bringing together a fashion metaverse event.

Get your look noticed at a Fashion Metaverse Event

And win some cash!

The whole world is going to be spending a lot more time in the metaverse. BNV's fashion metaverse appears when a network of explorers bring their ledger of connections and aesthetic (fashion NFTs and activity), and converge for metaverse fashion experiences.

Step into a fashion metaverse event on December 16, 2021 with an AMA with Jawara Alleyne (Instagram, Twitter), the designer behind the Blunt Dress. Add the date to your calendar. To make it even more interactive, we would like to give a shoutout to special attendees that also use our Blunt Dress AR filter, and give free eth to the best posts. We challenge you to record yourself and/or your friends in the dress and post on instagram or twitter (with us tagged of course).

Do your best to recreate the look from Dazed magazine’s 30th anniversary cover featuring Rihanna in the Blunt Dress.

Here's a few helpful tips:

Step 1 (The filter)

  • Download and the snapchat app (iOS, Android) and use it to scan the QR code (direct link to filter here), which gives you access to the Blunt Dress lens/filter. The filter works best when you have someone take a snap of you at least 3 meters away - just like a studio shoot, but without the expensive cameras.
  • Before you snap, consider that setting - props (like the bag) you are holding, makeup, hair style and anything else you think would help you get a better, or more interesting shot. Feel free to wow us with your creativity.
  • Save the image to your camera roll.
