Estee Lauder is participating in Decentraland's Metaverse Art Week (Aug 24 - 28) with an exclusive Proof of Attendance Protocol (POAP) designed by Dr Alex Box, renowned identity designer and one of the first women to pioneer the concept of Beauty Futurism.

Continuing to innovate at the intersection of beauty, art and technology, Estee Lauder's POAP experience is inspired by the legacy of the brand's visionary founder, Estee Lauder, and incorporates the brand's iconic cartouche.

The Estee Lauder POAP by Dr Box can be claimed at one of three different stations within Decentraland's Art Week, including the Sculpture Garden, CashLabs Gallery and ArtNet location.

Once the POAP is claimed, users will garner exclusive access to upcoming Web3 activations from the Estee Lauder brand.

"We are excited to bring our signature Estee Lauder experience to art lovers and Web3 enthusiasts at Decentraland's Art Week," said Stephane De La Faverie, global brand president, Estee Lauder & Aerin Beauty and group president, The Estee Lauder Companies.

"Innovation is at the heart of Estee Lauder and the metaverse represents a new frontier of exploration and creativity for the brand. Metaverse Art Week is a destination where Estee Lauder can fuse beauty, heritage, design and innovation in new ways and with new audiences."

"I am honoured to be partnering with Estee Lauder for Metaverse Art Week. I've always been incredibly inspired by the brand's iconic heritage, combined with a distinctly future-forward sense of exploration and achievement," said Dr Box.

"The metaverse has limitless possibilities and opens up novel ways to express beauty."

Metaverse Art Week 2022 will showcase the latest technological innovations in digital art and design development through an extensive virtual world fair that brings the contemporary art world into further alignment with the emerging world of Web3.

It aims to demonstrate the frontier of extended reality and the evolution of the visual internet.

Estee Lauder most recently participated with Decentraland as the exclusive beauty partner of Metaverse Fashion Week in March 2022, collaborating with Dr Box to create an original non-fungible token (NFT) wearable inspired by the brand's #1 serum, Advanced Night Repair. – AFP
