Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour was a guest at the virtual Youtube No Filters show hosted by supermodel Naomi Campbell. Anna shared her assumptions about how the fashion industry is going to change after the pandemic.
Anna Wintour believes that the fashion industry needs to slow down: in the era of overconsumption, people no longer notice that fashion is mostly art. Anna claims that it is time to focus on craft and creativity.
In the interview, the editor-in-chief also noted how important it is to support each other during this difficult time. The current CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund charity initiative aims to support designers, retailers, and all people within a fashion industry affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. “I feel very strongly that when we come out at the other end, which we will do, the people’s values are going to have shifted. I think it is an opportunity for all of us to look at our industry and our lives, and to rethink our values.”
Anna Wintour spoke about the postponement of the opening of the exhibition About Time and the traditional Met Gala dedicated to it. Most likely, the famous event will be held in October.
Anna admitted that now, like many others, she misses a human connection, and to keep herself in great physical shape, the editor-in-chief took up running.
