We are living through a major historical event and I know that, in the not too distant future, we will look back on this utterly bonkers time with a mixture of both joy and sadness. Our founder, Alice, has been trying to stay positive, finding moments of joy throughout this turbulent time, and wanted to see if anyone else was also feeling this way.
Cue some of the most brilliant journalists and influencers in our community who have all come together to spread some happiness and reveal what’s keeping them happy and sane during this time.
What are your fashion tips for isolation?
Comfort! I work from home a lot anyway so sticking to my usual rules of up and shower and put a nice outfit on- it’s usually always loungewear or during this nicer weather we’ve been getting a flowing dress works well.
What is your favourite discovery of lockdown?
Reading again, something I love to do but tell myself I don’t have time for. I’m reading Where The Crawdads Sing and love it. We’ve also been playing cards a lot after dinner as family which I love. It’s so rare for me to have all my teenage kids home together so I am making the most of this extra time with them.
What will be the most significant long-term benefit to come out of this for the fashion industry?
In general, possibly slowing down - although I’m sure once things get back to normal that will be forgotten! I’ve loved how creative the fashion industry has been in terms of creating content. Usually everyone is so busy you don’t have time to think about different ways of doing things... Everyone has had to think outside of the box, and I think it’s created some really interesting ideas.
