London Fashion Week begins on Friday on a virtual format due to a coronavirus lockdown with mainstays like Victoria Beckham shunning the event but others like Burberry embracing the online avatar.

Despite the absence of global celebrities and fashionistas, designers such as Turkey’s Bora Aksu, Britain’s Molly Goddard and Ireland’s Simone Rocha will stream their collections on the London Fashion Week website.

Most of the 94 designers participating in the show, which concludes on Tuesday, will broadcast video highlights of their collections showcasing menswear, womenswear or mixed fashions in an event that is now gender-neutral.

15 Shows to Watch During NYFW Fall 2021

When New York Fashion Week rolled around last September, it faced huge questions about how it would function during a global pandemic. The fashion industry was dealing with multiple unforeseen challenges: halted production, closed stores, widespread job loss, consumers who were distracted by the news and hesitant or unable to spend money. Still, most brands found a way to present their collections without in-person shows, and the result was, in a way, the most democratic Fashion Week ever: Anyone could tune in from home.

This season, not much has changed. For the fall 2021 New York shows, which officially kick off Sunday, February 14, brands will stream virtual presentations ranging from traditional catwalks to mini-documentaries and kooky escapist shorts meant to be shared on social media. There’s also some depth in the mix, with discussions about racial equity, inclusion, and politics in fashion. Below, a list 15 things we’re

The study aims to highlight “the breadth and diversity” of women wearing modest fashion. It urges the fashion industry to pay more attention to women’s needs, and wants places of work and study to expand their understanding of what an “appropriate” dress code entails.

Women who worked at U.K. faith-based organizations were interviewed as part of the study, as were women who worked in Saudi Arabia, where they are required to

The Council of Fashion Designers of America and fashion conglomerate PVH Corp. have released the State of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in Fashion Report, a review of racial equity in the fashion industry. The findings are sourced from a study done by McKinsey & Company, which surveyed 1,000 industry professionals in 41 companies, 20 stakeholders, and three focus groups with college students and burgeoning designers. In other words, we’re getting down to the numbers on some key issues in the fashion industry.

Drawing from the research, the CFDA and PVH Corp. have spotlighted six targets: compensation, belonging, advocacy, promotion, awareness, and access. These key areas will be used as a foundation to help advocate for the representation and career advancement of underrepresented groups across all sectors of the fashion industry.

“The inclusion and diversity challenges in the fashion industry are real,” said Stefan Larsson, CEO
