The Show Must Go On

September 15th, 2020   admin   Fashion Tags: , , , ,

As the fashion industry struggles during the midst of coronavirus, various artists, designers, and members of the fashion community have collaborated to make New York Fashion Week happen. The event, which has been occurring since 1943, has not only been a way to showcase some of the most unique fashion pieces in the industry, but is something that unites fashion fanatics and viewers around the world.

New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, announced in late August that the show could carry on if certain precautions were set in place. These safety measures include juristically reducing capacity for an outside setting and using a combination of virtual and in-person events. Although virtual events will not compare to the in-person experience, many are stating that this format is not only better for the environment but allows for more styles to be showcased at once.

Designers and critics are thrilled about the event, which started on September 13th and will continue through the 17th. One of the first events was Jason Wu’s collection at the Spring Studios rooftop in Manhattan. Due to limited capacity, social distancing, and the ability to watch the event online, it was possible to enjoy this runway show. As the shows continue to be broadcasted, infamous designers such as Badgley Mischka and Anna Sui can present some of their best designs while still being safe.

Allowing New York Fashion Week to continue is a huge step for New York and the fashion community. Although the fight against the virus is still very much prevalent, the New York Fashion Week website combats this by posting a variety of runway shows, workshops, cultural conversations, and so much more. While the show does bring in millions of dollars each year, this event is about more than just the monetary gain. It is about uniting citizens and designers and showing how unique fashion can unite countries around the world.
