Fashion month has already started and New York opened the game to fashion week amid the coronavirus pandemic. As reported by the Council of Fashion Designers of the United States (CFDA), one of the first changes that was made was shorten the calendar, and all the parades will be able to be seen in a span of three days instead of seven or eight as is tradition.

As indicated by the state governor, Andrew M. Cuomo, for the fashionista event to take place, several sanitary measures had to be implemented. Between them, temperature control and tests for admission, limited personnel and face always covered with masks. Also, if the parade is abroad they will be limited to 50 spectators and indoors with 50% capacity and no audience.

The person in charge of opening the catwalk was Jason Wu. The designer is one of the few who will present his collection in person with the public and models parading. He did it on the terrace of the iconic Spring Studios, where all the fashion shows are held in fashion weeks. Wu invited only 36 people who were strategically located respecting social distance. To each guest upon arrival at the parade they took his temperature and made him answer a health questionnaire before I can take a seat.

“I think the world needs beauty and optimism,” said the designer to The Associated Press after the beach-themed presentation. “New York Fashion Week is not over. Is strong. We are here, we can all be safe, be together and celebrate”.

The show featured 30 models that paraded on a wooden walkway surrounded by tropical plants and sand that transported all the VIP guests to Tulum, in the Mexican Caribbean, where the designer got married.

The garments that Wu presented, with Indya Moore among her models, they are part of the spring 2021 collection exclusively for women. The couturier dressed his models in tropical yellow, orange and pink tones. On the catwalk many were seen summer dresses with cheerful floral prints.

The models also wore wide brim hats and without losing the style of super high heels, they wore the garment of the moment: Teva style strappy sandals on flat rubber soles, decorated with bows and beads.

To adapt to the new normal, the parade was also broadcast live on the RUNWAY360 digital platform, where most designers will present their collections, as the public to the shows will be restricted.
