Just think, only a few short months ago, we had never even heard the term “social distancing”. Now it’s a permanent fixture inside our subconscious along with face masks and handwashing. How the times have changed. Fashion, as usual, has adjusted with the times as well. Outfits once viewed as eye-catchingly outrageous have become very True Fashionista on their own right. If it makes a statement from far away, it’s what you want to be seen in, from virtual runways to a modestly busy, fully-masked midtown setting.
Everyone’s got a new normal these days, but as things unfolded and locked down worldwide, the British Fashion Council was ready to go, recently announcing an online version of London Fashion Week: Men’s, happening June 12th – 14th. Content will roll out in completely digital form for the first time via londonfashionweek.co.uk, reports Vogue. In case women might feel left out and alone at home in these extraordinarily worrisome times, this True Fashionista event has been retrofitted as a gender-neutral presentation, allowing all to enjoy a little normalcy and fun amid the excitement and presentation of tomorrow’s fashion by today’s hottest and up-and-coming designers.
