New York is all set to inaugurate Fashion Week, with in-person shows following the Covid-19 Safety Measures

 

 

However, the slow return to normal is slowly happening in a city ravaged by Covid-19 and by recent flooding.

Fashion Week organizers have established a strict protocol. All participants and guests must be vaccinated. Masks are not recommended for runway models, but they are highly recommended for all other attendees. Audience sizes are also limited.

 

 

New York’s Spring/Summer 2022 Fashion Week is back after a long hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic. It will feature in-person runway shows with big names such as Altuzarra and Tom Ford.

 

However, Covid-related restrictions will prevent the series from retaining some of its international flavors as it launches this week.

 

The fashion week in February 2021 and September 2020 was overshadowed by the pandemic. Both weeks were dominated by virtual runway shows.

Steven Kolb is the chief executive of The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). He says he sees potential for both in-person and digital shows.

 

He said there was “a real optimism, energy, and enthusiasm about returning live shows.”

 

“There is nothing that can be compared to a live performance.”

 

New York has many iconic runway settings. New York’s fashion shows are a step ahead of those in London, Milan, and Paris.

 

The Met Gala this year has a distinctly youthful feel. It is hosted by Billie Eilish (singer), actor Timothee Chalamet (actor), poet Amanda Gorman, and Naomi Osaka (tennis star), all of whom are under 25.

 

 

Thursday evening will see LaQuan Smith present his collection from the Empire State Building. This is the culmination of a day that included Sergio Hudson, Carolina Herrera, and Moschino shows.

 

Hillary Taymour is the founder of Collina Strawberry and will show her environmental consciousness on Tuesday at a Brooklyn rooftop garden.

 

Michael Kors stated, “This is a crucial moment for New York, and we’re proud of supporting the city and industry.”

 

Steven Kolb said, “We are resilient.” “And we’re optimistic.”

 

The Covid factor

Fashion Week overlaps this year with the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s fashion extravaganza. This is a high point of the city’s social calendar and will be held on Monday.

He said there was “a real optimism, energy, and enthusiasm about returning live shows.”

 

“There is nothing that can be compared to a live performance.”

 

 

According to the CFDA, “a large portion” of the 91 official events in the United States will be held outdoors. However, some labels still rely on digital presentations.

 

Kolb explained to AFP that travel to the United States is still prohibited in many countries.

 

He insisted that he doesn’t worry about whether the impact won’t reach international audiences. They will only be able to see it online.

 

“Less routine”

The American fashion industry was already facing significant challenges even before the pandemic. Once-promising tentpoles such as Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, and Tommy Hilfiger dropped high-end lines or moved their shows to other places. New York also saw the departure of designers such as Pyer Moss and Rihanna.

 

The CFDA is promoting the return of Thom Browne and Joseph Altuzarra, who previously left New York City for Paris.

 

The week begins on Tuesday with Christian Siriano & Collina Strada.

 

The calendar also features Liberian-American stylist Telfar Clemens (whose vegan leather shopping bag made a considerable impact) and Peter Do (the young designer born on a small Vietnamese farm and now participates in his first Fashion Week.

 

The week will end with big-name shows by Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, and Tom Ford on Sunday.

 

Some designers are still feeling mixed about the pandemic that has deemphasized in-person shows at least temporarily.

 

Cathleen Sheehan from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York stated that designers don’t feel pressured to show every season.

 

“It’s a massive relief for many brands, as shows are costly.

 

It’s less of a commitment and more of a routine. You have more freedom.
