Even at this stage, a shift in the fashion industry is apparent, but what is next? I want to explore how the future of fashion might change in light of this pandemic, which in the US at least is turning out to be thankfully much less than we had planned; but much more than we expected from an economic standpoint. So, what does this mean?
What We have Learned
This has been a time for reflection, assessment and thought. A new normal will emerge, and we are all part of its creation, so what have we learned?
About who we are: Do we want to be independent or be led in our lives
About our joint Commitment: How we join together and follow rules
About our Ingenuity: How we work to solve problems
About our Independence: How we define and defy authority
About our Security: how we buy into fear and deal with stress
In the end, history will show us how we handled this challenge, but one thing we know for sure we will have more to look back on you the next time.
The New Face of Fashion
How will fashion change? None of us really know, but here are some thoughts…
Fashion trends will slow down and be swapped for minimalism, capsule dressing and classic styles.
Will we see a rise in digital stylists, as shoppers seek advice from a socially safe distance?
As a nod to social distancing, will designers be playing around with hats, masks and capes?
The fashionable masks and gloves industry, here to stay? It looks that way.
If there is one fashion item to come out of the Covid 19 pandemic and define the aesthetic around the world, it´s the face mask. It looks like fashionable face masks are destined to become part of everyday fashion and we´re already seeing designers releasing their creative, revamped versions.
I am not a fan of being muzzled, so if I´m wearing a mask, it´s got to be a pretty one.
I´ve seen some gorgeous creations by Denver designer, Brooks Ltd. and there´s a beautiful face mask collection from Curriedmyrrh. I showed them off on a fun-filled day with my photographer, the talented HKCamerface, exploring the lakebed, discovering an abandoned Teepee and having lots of fun whilst, of course, maintaining social distancing.
DIY No Sew Face Mask
If you haven´t had a chance to buy a face mask yet, you can DIY solution from home. We found this mask tutorial online and gave it a go for fun. Oh, the things you do for the Gram! HKCameraface and I had such a laugh.
My Attempt – Oh how we laughed
A New Normal
Covid 19 is changing the face of fashion and the industry’s reaction to the pandemic is quite apparent, but none of us know what the long-term future holds. I for one am taking positive lessons from this, holding onto what is important and looking forward to seeing the new normal we create from here.
I hope you enjoyed this share. It´s some fashion for thought. Until the next time….
