‘Work from Home’ Challenge & Challenging Times

The outbreak of the novel corona virus is surely a global health system crisis affecting the wellness of people and the viability of their businesses. The impact of Covid-19 on all business sectors, including on the fashion industry, is faced by the professionals in this vast creative and commercial field with courage. The pandemic is often seen as an opportunity among colleagues, designers, and customers for more bonding in a digital way. Interactive platforms show the path towards more efficient and direct communication. Small businesses are struggling to respond to orders and requests from the clients but still they employ all their imagination and skills so that they manage to deliver the products they promised. Brand concepts such as the ‘work from home style’ challenge are encouraging fashion insiders and customers to share their #WFH outfits to boost morale and the willingness to work during the quarantine period. Fashion pros ‘stay home’ and dress up for work joined by their fashionable clients posting their incredible looks – some of them infused with humor and quirkiness!

Joseph Abboud recently kicked off the #JAWorkFromHomeChallenge and the visual feedback he received from friend and customers was totally hilarious and morale-boosting. The American menswear brand will reward the best #WFH outfit with a suit!

At Lizzie Fortunato, the two twin sisters Lizzie & Kathryn creating beautiful accessories – especially jewelry in NYC – have put their business on survival mode. One sister offered to transform her living room into their shipping closet from where they are currently sending out all customer orders.

Rebecca Taylor is additionally getting #WFHoutfit feedback from fashion influencers and insiders such as Tamu McPherson and she is also posting stylish ideas from her collection (top-right photo in this page).
