We live in an unprecedented time. A time we have not chosen, a pause we have not asked for and a future we do not know. The Corona crisis has hit the fashion industry hard. In many areas, the ailing system has collapsed. Things have leaked to the surface that many in the industry have tried for years to patch up and hide, again and again, provisionally. And the pace has been accelerating. Some people have not had the strength to follow this pace for a long time. Especially since it felt more and more like a chase.
COVID-19 has knocked down the fashion industry like a bomb that explodes in the middle of it all and hits everyone. However, this bomb has been slumbering like a “dud in the ground” of the industry for years. Some of these unexploded bombs were only just below the surface – others were deep down.
