Paris Proudly Hosts its First Digital Fashion Week
The world around us is rapidly changing, and few industries have been spared. Fashion, it seems, is no exception. This summer, Paris is adjusting to its new pandemic circumstances along with the rest of the world. And one of the city’s most notorious and buzzed-about events, fashion week, has been scaled back as a result. This July, Paris made necessary compromises and changes in order to be able to still showcase the works of French and international menswear designers. In a pared-down fashion week showing, fashion houses moved to digital, following in the footsteps of, well, just about everything (jobs, happy hours, dates, film festivals, DJ sets, etc.). With Zoom fatigue abound throughout the world (and, moreover, a very grim reality of the global health and economic crisis) fashion feels equal parts frivolous and completely necessary – an artful, visually pleasing balm to an oppressively harsh time. But fashion’s frivolity and whimsy and sense of fun are all part of its ever-present appeal.   View this post on Instagram   @victoriatomasofficial showed its FW2020/2021 yesterday on #ParisFashionWeek schedule ! #pfw ☂️ A post shared by Paris Fashion Week (@parisfashionweek) on Feb 26, 2020 at 2:08pm PST
