This fashion month was definitely one for the history books. As the first fashion month since the global pandemic began, brands showed a mix of digital and physical shows. There was definitely a reduced crowd. Show-goers all wore masks and there was a sense of caution in the interactions. Before there was familiarity. Among the photographers there was an air of happiness to be back shooting and seeing friends. But there was also a feeling of trepidation. One of the most interesting parts of this season for me was seeing that because so many people weren’t able to travel, there were many more local attendees. Even stylish passersby or people who would stand outside the shows were much more visible now. In previous years they would have been lost in the commotion. So I felt there was more authenticity in the style compared to previous seasons.
