While in 2020, most of us spent time in our comfy Pajamas, occasionally dressing up for social media and zoom call meetings, that were not exactly ‘dressed up in formal’; giving rise to the waist-up fashion. So we all can agree on the fact that last year was a roller coaster right for fashion.
With the fashion month of 2021 coming to an end, most designers decided to present their collection in a digital format. People from around the world tuned in to live-streamed shows, YouTube conversations, and artful videos. Every design showcased designers’ efforts to adapt to the reality of post-quarantine. When we are talking about creativity and innovation, it is hard not to mention the French brand Copernic. They stole the limelight by transforming ActorHotels Arena into a drive-in Runway.
While many of us are trying to search for fashion inspiration on social media in our pajamas, others are busy reviving their old outfits. Now in 2021, when things are slowly getting back to normal, our wardrobes are in desperate need of a makeover. So what is the verdict?
