Festival registration is open! Design Week 2020 runs virtually from August 3-7.
Bloom Beauty Collective is bringing awareness to the new norm in the fashion industry. There has been a noticeable change in the industry since Covid-19 hit in March, but change had been gradually occurring in the industry even before. A variety of factors have contributed to this change: fast-paced production, sustainability factors, and changes to seasonal distribution.
“The New Norm in Fashion” will consist of a panel to add insight to these changes, their impact, and to highlight where the NW stands in the industry today. Panelists will be asked to answer the most important question, are we able to meet consumers where they are?
