With industry leaders declaring death of the fashion industry the current world lockdown certainly has it on its knees.
The question is, will it get back up from its knees?
It may well get up again, but it will be walking in a different way. The move from fashion weeks to social media is getting faster. They were working hand in hand, but now social media seems to be the primary tool for fashion labels.
This will effect buying habits and in turn what the labels do. It will be the latest fashion.
The casualisation of the workplace is a welcome development. The effect of clothing formality, instead of a sharp professional look, was instead a reluctant and resentful workforce wearing what they did not want.
With the increased freedom to choose, workers are then confronted with the decision of what to wear. Japanese trading house company, Itochu got on the case and partnered with a department store to aid employees to revamp their dress code. That example of best practice also prevents workers going too casual and looking like they are dressing for home renovations.
