It will be a fashion month like no other. The coronavirus pandemic has upended the traditional runway format, and in its place will be a mix of virtual and, in some cases, physical shows with limited audience numbers.
New York Fashion Week (NYFW) arrives first, running from September 13 to 17 ahead of London, Milan and Paris. Following NYFW, London Fashion Week will also attempt a mix of in-person and digital events from September 17, as organizers contend with new coronavirus restrictions introduced in the UK following a recent jump in new cases.
And while there’s a growing fear that parts of Europe will see a new wave of Covid-19 cases, both Milan and Paris still, for now, plan to stage a number of physical shows towards the end of the month.
Meanwhile, popular social media app TikTok is looking to engage Gen-Z audiences through its own online fashion month, partnering with labels such as Louis Vuitton, Alice + Olivia and Saint Laurent, among others, to livestream runway shows and present capsule collections.
New York City is the fashion capital of the world and New York Fashion Week celebrates the ingenuity of this city.. The pandemic is far from over, but event organizer IMG is moving forward with NYFW, in adherence with strict state public health guidance.”
