With the cancellation of Paris Haute Couture and Paris Men’s Fashion Weeks, there is no surprise in the Milan Fashion Week’s postponement until September. The international fashion industry landscape is not going to have the usual form in 2020. There is an obvious alternative for running fashion shows – via digital platforms. London Fashion Week is among the pioneers to go in for the full digital experience this June. According to the British Fashion Council, it will showcase womenswear and menswear to present the “gender-neutral platform”. It is great news for fashion lovers and enthusiasts. New visual content will be available from those showcases. How should we get inspired now? In 2020, streaming platforms are proactive in releasing fashion shows about the next big designers. Let’s take a look.

The designs are judged by the most influential fashion world personalities: supermodel Naomi Campbell, designer Joseph Altuzarra, digital entrepreneur Chiara Ferragni, fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, and actress Nicole Richie. Following the runway show, one designer wins and his or her triumphant look is available for purchase in the Making the Cut store on Amazon. Last but not least, the show’s winner receives a one-million-dollar prize to create a collection with an exclusive distribution deal with Amazon and mentorship to help grow their business.
