On our minds: More brands are breaking up with the traditional show system
Burberry, Vetements and Tom Ford are next to break the conventional fashion show system.
Following Armani’s decision to reject the traditional fashion show schedule and make his “New Normal” collection available in store instantly after its presentation to press (which we covered here), we are now seeing other designers increasingly heading in the same direction.
