Ahead of the ‘new normal’ NYFW, we look back at some of last September’s best bits.

Usually, we’d be getting our street style outfits ready for the first Fashion Week of the season (or watching with envy the outfit prep all over Instagram). But, as everything else in the world right now, things are going to be a little different this time around. The SS21 shows will be taking place digitally this year, starting with New York Fashion Week. While we’re excited to see a shift in the way each show will take place, we’d like to start out by reminiscing about the SS20 shows from this time last year. Who knows if and when any Fashion Weeks will be able to return to their usual form. So, while we’ve succumbed to an online version of our every day life, we should probably strap in for an online fashion industry too.

These are some of our favourite looks from last year’s NYFW.
