Fashion Week 2020 Preview: Daniel w Fletcher

The coronavirus has come for Fashion Week, but Fashion Week is unbowed. With the 2020 edition of LFWM going all-digital, the event’s key designers talk us through how they’ve adapted to showing clothes in a world where showing clothes is (almost) impossible.


What’s been the biggest challenge with producing a lockdown fashion ‘show’?

Manufacturing was one of the biggest challenges this season. When lockdown set in all of the factories started to close, but this collection was made possible by the amazing seamstresses I’ve worked with directly, sending them fabrics and patterns so they could work from home. This collection is a testament to their skill and dedication.

LONDON — The British Fashion Council is buckled up and preparing to rocket into uncharted territory today as it fires up the first all-digital fashion week, a trip as strange and unfamiliar as a mission to the moon.

Men’s designers were worried about business and trade in a post-Brexit economy, about the environment, and the threat of more conflict around the world after President Trump ordered a fatal airstrike on Iran’s most important military leader, Gen.

Minneapolis city council pledges to defund police; editors at major papers step down; NYC lifts curfew

The Minneapolis City Council took a major step Sunday toward making radical changes in the city’s beleaguered police department, as a super majority publicly expressed support for disbanding the force.

Earlier Sunday, Mayor Bill de Blasio canceled New York’s curfew following a day when cities across the nation saw massive, peaceful demonstrations against racism and police brutality. 

“We are lifting the curfew, effective immediately,” de Blasio tweeted. “Yesterday and last night we saw the very best of our city.”

On Monday, Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who is charged with the second-degree murder of George Floyd, is scheduled to have his first court appearance. Chauvin has been in jail since his arrest on May 29.

Protests began after the Memorial Day death of Floyd, the African-American man who died after Chauvin knelt on his neck for nearly nine minutes. The latest in a series of memorial services for
