Bex DAY c/o MAKING PICTURES photographed the stills and realized the film for the story ‘An Industry in Flux’ which was published by DEPARTURES, the lifestyle resource for American Express Platinum Card and Centurion members.
The Corona pandemic has not only been a monumental break in history, the fashion industry has also been in a state of flux. The new era of athleisure and fear made several designers ask themselves: Will anyone ever buy high-end fashion again? Luckily for the fashion industry and its designers, the answer is yes. To celebrate such resilience, DEPARTURES asked ten fashion designers how the past one-and-a-half years has been for them, about the effects lockdowns have had on their creative process or how they managed to keep their business alive. We have the spread and film here on GoSee, and you can read the exciting article via DEPARTURES.
