The coronavirus has come for Fashion Week, but Fashion Week is unbowed. With the 2020 edition of show season going all-digital, the key designers talk us through how they’ve adapted to showing clothes in a world where showing clothes is (almost) impossible.
What’s been the biggest challenge with producing a lockdown fashion ‘show’?
Lisi Herrebrugh: Many actually. The biggest at first quality wigs was the fact that weren’t able to order any fabrics, not doing any colourations we had in mind for the season. On the other hand, our student instinct right away took over the fear and we just worked with what we have. Make it work and make something beautiful out of it.
Rushemy Botter: The biggest problems are also our biggest advantages: difficulty takes you out of your comfort zone and you’re able create items you would never have thought of.
