Part of what has made NFT technology so incredible is how it has opened up new monetization opportunities for a vast array of different creators. Historically, modeling has fallen prey to inequitable pay and other forms of adversity, so Fierce Studios decided it was time to launch an NFT project explicitly intended to promote models and their work.

Fierce Studios NFT is a 10k NFT collection of digital representations based around 10 real-life models. Michelle McCormack, Founder & Creative Director, said of the collection: "One of our dreams is to empower models to own their finances and their career.

This premier collection will feature a roster of 10 models: KhrystyAna, Nickayla Rivera, Muriel Villera, Tessa Granier, Kendra Austin, Tory Williams, Eli Erlick, Jarry Lee,Mamy Fall, and Melinda DiMarco.

The 100% female-led team behind Fierce Studios has partnered with Saucony for the project, and holders of tokens with certain rarities will be rewarded with real-life shoes from the iconic sneaker brand. Additionally, a portion of proceeds from the initial sale will go to the 1000 Dreams Fund charity as part of Fierce's commitment to heralding young women. By incorporating their partnership with a leading sneaker brand, Fierce is building on a growing trend in the NFT landscape, tying the digital to the physical. This is the first of many brand integrations for Fierce, as we see our NFT project as a new e-comm channel for brands to reach consumers on a 1 -1 basis” said Marisa Skolnick, Head of Brand Partnerships. 

Nickayla Rivera, one of the featured models for the project, said of her integration into the space: “NFTs provide an opportunity for artists, entertainers, models, etc to showcase their artistry in a unique progressive way. I’m so happy to be a part of this new digital space that showcases creativity and individuality around the world.”

Fierce Studios' project is the first NFT collection featuring real-life models, and demonstrates a potential avenue for creators to use NFT technology to uplift historically underpaid creators. The project drops for the public Wednesday, December 15th on FIERCE STUDIOS. Pre-sale is live today for ONE37pm readers at this link; password is "onefierce".  Check out their website and join them on Fierce Discord to get more live announcements and prizes.
