As fashion continues to be challenged due to COVID-19, American designers present their collections virtually this week and next, further establishing a new virtual norm within the world of fashion design.
As a result of these changes, undaunted designers, editors, retailers, stylists, photographers, and public relations professionals are all rallying to create a season that is meaningful to the industry and to its consumers.
Though our new virtual norm is creating a new innovative fashion industry, It’s not easy. Some designers chose to go the fall 2021 route in releasing their timeless collections, meanwhile, other noteworthy designers are putting their designs to be bought, worn, and sold now.
When browsing online, viewers may be inclined to punch in that credit card number when they see a top that will turn heads in their next Zoom meeting.
Although viewers won’t be getting a glimpse of fashion week collections in person this year, the virtual runway/ film shows could potentially be the opening door many designers need during this unprecedented time.
Jason Wu, Imitation of Christ, Claudia. Li, Anna Sui, Tom Ford, Christian Cowan, Dennis Basso, Gabriela Hearst, Victor Glemaud, Frederick Anderson, Naeem Khan, Nicole Miller, Kevan Hall, and Anne Klein are among those showing.
Last night, the Black Design Collective (BDC ) kicked off its Runway 360 presentation of 10 designers who will be showcased on CFDA.com throughout the week.
The designers featured in BDC’s “Runway 360,” include Byron Lars, Epperson, Okera Banks, Aaron Potts, and Cross Colors, the trailblazing streetwear brand that has effortlessly maneuvered its way through today’s everchanging industry.
Fashion’s energy and creativity is much needed in these uncertain and on some days, gloomy times.
