The revelation of the retail crisis caused by the coronavirus and the global response coincided with the closing of the first round of demands for A Common Thread, America's fashion self-rescue plan. The initiative was created less than a month ago to help the designers, stores and independent entrepreneurs who make up the fashion ecosystem.

Can the Fashion Designers Council of America and Vogue succeed where the Small Business Administration has stumbled?

During the 10-day application period that began on April 8, more than 800 businesses and individuals from 38 states applied for a tranche of what is currently a $ 4.1 million fund, raised from supporters of industry and individuals, with grants targeted at businesses with revenues of less than $ 10 million and less than 30 employees.

No grant will exceed $ 100,000.

"We are not claiming this is a bailout," said Anna Wintour, artistic director of Condé Nast and editor-in-chief of Vogue. “We see this as a grant that will bridge a very difficult time, something to keep the lights on. The goal is to give a little money to as many people as possible. "

The money could help designers pay the factories that produce their samples and the fabric suppliers; help stores pay designers for stock ordered and produced; and help factories pay their tailors.

He stopped and then added, "It was really hard to see some of the names."

(Mr. Kolb declined to provide the names out of respect for their privacy, but, he said, "You can check the New York Fashion Week schedule.")

According to the CFDA, about 71% of applicants were brands or designers, 13% independent retailers, 7% small factories, and 8% associated businesses like production and PR companies that help support the industry.

After a first review by the CFDA to eliminate incomplete applications and ineligible names, a committee of 10 people, including Wen Zhou, general manager of 3.1 Phillip Lim; Rachna Shah, partner at KCD; and Jeffery Fowler, President, Americas at Farfetch, will read the applications and decide on the grants. The committee hopes to have the first funds by mid-late May.

A common thread is just one of the initiatives of the fashion world in the main style capitals. In London, the British Fashion Council's BFC Foundation Fashion Fund for the Covid Crisis is seeking to disburse £ 1million to independent designers and students, in grants of no more than £ 50,000. In Milan, Camera della Moda is raising funds to support independent talent through a campaign called #TogetherForTomorrow, which also connects young designers with experts in different fields.

In Paris, the LVMH Prize for Young Fashion Designers - at 300,000 euros, the prize for the most lucrative emerging designer in the world and normally awarded to a single emerging designer - will be shared between the eight current finalists. A second fund, which includes the Karl Lagerfeld prize of 150,000 euros, will be available on request to help the winning designers of the last six years of the LVMH competition.

A common thread started as a reorientation of the fundraiser CFDA and Vogue initiated for their Fashion Fund award, and since then it has been augmented by donations: Ralph Lauren donated $ 1 million; PVH, the parent company of Calvin Klein and Tommy Hilfiger, donated $ 50,000; and hundreds of small donors, many of them anonymous, donated between $ 5 and $ 25.


“I was so moved and touched by the generosity,” said Ms. Wintour. “When Ralph called to tell me his contribution, I burst into tears. Bringing him in and helping us get started had been such a vote of support. And then there were hundreds of little donations, which broke your heart. There were former Fashion Fund attendees who returned their money from last year and didn't want their names mentioned. They just said, "We're in the same boat." "

Jonathan Cohen, a designer known for his cheerful prints and mindful upcycling, was a finalist for the CFDA / Vogue Fashion Fund in 2018. He applied for both a small business loan ($ 200,000) and the A Common Thread grant. of $ 100,000. .

“The difference on this app was to focus on how we were affected, as well as what we need to keep going,” he wrote in an email.

Mr. Cohen was in San Diego, where he moved to be with his family. This is the first time he has lived at the home since he was 19 (he is now 34) and the first time that he and his business partner, Sarah Leff, have been separated since starting their business in 2011.

"At that time we are paying all the expenses out of pocket," he wrote, adding that normally he would have store payments for spring-summer merchandise but most of that money was now on hold and not shouldn't happen for months (if any). “A common thread would be very useful for covering immediate expenses, as well as for planning the next six to eight months. For the S.B.A. it is very difficult to know when / how much money we will get. "

Mr Kolb said he expected to be able to award money to 10% of the candidates. Those who do not receive funds in the first round, which are reserved for those who need it most, will automatically be included in the next round. He expects most grants to vary between $ 25,000 and $ 75,000. (He estimates that $ 2 million will be disbursed.)

“We are not naive about this,” Ms. Wintour said. “We know we can't help everyone. And maybe some of the people we help will not be successful. But we wanted to show that there is a fashionable support system. That there is a future. "

Now, we don't want to assume too much, but it's probably safe to say that you've been wearing a lot more sweatpants lately - or if not, leggings, maybe. Or maybe you have customized your own face mask. For many of us, these statewide stay-at-home orders have influenced the way we dress, the way we think about clothing.

And it got us thinking about how this historic moment might shape the future of our clothing, so we called Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell to help us think about it. She is a fashion historian and author of "Worn On This Day: The Clothes That Made History". And Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell is with us now.

Welcome. Thank you very much for joining us.

KIMBERLY CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Thanks for inviting me, Michel.

MARTIN: So you were recently quoted in the online publication Quartz saying that the biggest changes in fashion don't come from trends. They come from major societal disruptions like wars.

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Yeah. Well, the French Revolution, for example, did away with a lot of the exaggerated fashions associated with the Old Regime - hair powder, hoop petticoats, lace. Everything that was associated with the aristocracy - everything was gone, and it was a political change as well as a change of fashion.

MARTIN: What about World War II? How has this changed the way people dress?

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Well, after the extreme hardships of WWII, when things like food and clothing were rationed and were really hard to come by because so much production was going into the war effort, people went went in the opposite direction. And Dior's new look brought a fad for very long skirts and corsets and very exaggerated fashions that would not have been available or politically correct during the war.

MARTIN: And the current moment? What are the trends that you think could emerge from this moment?

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: One of the first things that I kind of predicted would happen was the same thing that happened in World War I, that is, beards go out of fashion. And, in fact, very early in this pandemic, the CDC issued guidelines for things like beards and fingernails, as these can be vectors for the virus, but they can also interfere with your protective gear. For example, it is difficult to wear latex gloves on long nails. It is difficult to put a face mask or respirator on a beard.

MARTIN: So let's talk about the business side for a second. I mean, you have to believe or assume that the industry, the fashion industry, has to feel an economic impact because manufacturing has been shut down in so many places, because so many retail stores are closed. And, of course, you know, tens of millions of people are out of work. So presumably people are not shopping for clothes at the moment. So what do we know - what do we know about how changes in the fashion industry are affecting the types of choices consumers might make?

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Well, it's been fascinating for me to watch how fashion brands and consumers adapt to the widespread restrictions. Maybe athleticism will benefit naturally, as people will continue to wear it after the lockdown, maybe more than they felt comfortable before. It's kind of a double-edged sword, because we buy less because we're not going anywhere.

But retail therapy is a real thing, and a lot of people are shopping online for entertainment or out of necessity, maybe even for the first time, and they will continue to do so. I mean, I first bought groceries online a few weeks ago just because I had to. But this is something that I will probably continue to do. And retailers are adapting to it of course.

MARTIN: Have you seen any fashion examples that meet what we now consider to be hygienic standards?

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Designer masks are definitely becoming a thing, but they already were, in fact. During the fall and winter 2019 parades there were a lot of masks on the runway - both the type of protection and the kind of carnival masks. So things that were already percolating in the high fashion arena are now accelerating.

MARTIN: But before you let go, as a fashion historian, what kinds of things do you think you'll be most interested in reopening the economy, when does that happen?

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Well, I think we're going to see a personal style rebirth. It feels like people can't wait to have a reason to go out again. Rachel Syme, the New Yorker fashion reporter, has started a movement to get people to dress at home every Sunday and post pictures of their outfits just for fun dressing and looking pretty . We can see a real fashion renaissance of people going way beyond just because they've been locked up and that personal expression has been stifled for so long.

MARTIN: It's Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell. She is a fashion historian and author of several books, including "Worn On This Day: The Clothes That Made History". We joined him in Los Angeles.

Kimberly Chrisman-Campbell, thank you very much for talking to us.

CHRISMAN-CAMPBELL: Thanks, Michel. Stay safe.

The new spring-summer season has arrived in the confined city. The spring of the virus requires a radical segmentation between the inside and the outside. In the house, the look of the poorly groomed hairstyle makes you forget the standardized severity of the salon cut. A new eco-techno-coronary look asserts itself with the firecracker wick, the unshaved beard and the black roots. Sloppy styling is the best proof of confinement, and therefore immunity. And immunity is chic. For the outfit, pajama pants replace jeans. Slippers replace sneakers.

Outside, the bare hand is replaced by the rubber glove, white, yellow or blue. Any plastic object - a 6 liter water bottle, an umbrella, goggles, a page divider - carries with it the potential to become a wetsuit. The garbage bag is the new ready-to-wear, both in hospitals and in nursing homes and refugee camps. Latex is a must. Epidemiologists warn that plastic is one of the surfaces the virus adheres to the best. But plastic protects against fear because it does not prevent contagion.

Outside the domestic space, the mask becomes the social condom of the masses. The textile sector, the most dependent on supplies from China, sees its production almost blocked. China is not only the epicenter of the virus, it is also the workshop where half of the world's clothes are sewn. Inditex, a leading international textile group, is collapsing on the stock markets. Who needs a new shirt while in lockdown? The big fashion brands, Yves Saint Laurent, Balenciaga, LVMH… recycle their workshops to produce masks, medical gowns and protective suits. Despite everything, China remains the world's leading producer ... of masks now.

The faces of the world disappear under the mask, medical or contraband, homemade or bought from Amazon, luxury or cheap, certified or uncertain, whatever contaminates more than it protects. Fashion accessory par excellence in 2020, the mask had already appeared in the fashion week parades in London, Milan and Paris in early 2019, before the virus crisis was declared in Europe: Chanel, Kenzo, Marine Serre, Pitta Mask, Xander Zhou sign their exclusive models. Hygiene goes hand in hand with style. In digital, the selfie reigns, in analog, there are only "maskies". The feminists of the 60s burned bras and the transfeminists of the 2020s make two masks in each bra. Nowadays, would anyone claim that hiding the face with a full hijab is an anti-Republican sign?


The new smells of the season are the neutral and transparent fragrance of hydroalcoholic gel, the reassuring freshness of detergent and the deep, spicy fragrance of bleach. The new trend is the total Chernobyl-medical look. Where any social relationship is contagious, barrier fashion rules. When the economy permits, and political negligence does not prevent it, bodies are covered with a hygienic epidermis made of impenetrable cellulose. White is the dominant color in the spring-summer collection, with hints of yellow, blue and orange. The full, unisex suit is heralded as the new urban summer raincoat. Covered with a protective film, the human of the Covid-19 era looks like a bat hiding under its plastic wings. Is the sanitary suit a totem by which the potential contaminant attempts to coax the virus by adopting the attributes of the contaminating animal?

The sleeves and legs are worn wide, the silhouette is curved and continuous, from the hood to the feet, the skin becomes invisible. The difference between pants, shirt, jacket, skirt and shoe disappears. The codes which make it possible to recognize the human body in society become inoperative. The human is disfigured. Toxic Age Chameleons, invisible but present, the Faceless Human and the virus look alike.

The mask, the combination and the generalization of barrier gestures are the destruction of the social relationship as we have known it until now in the sensitive field. Touch becomes impossible, smile invisible, hip movement is imperceptible.

The skin becomes an internal and private organ. The body is defamiliarized, desingularized, deseroticized. The hygienic coveralls are much more and much less than just a dress. It is an external and protective technoskin under which the body loses its unique shape. It is the open status of the body, the porosity of the skin, its ability to relate to the outside, that is denied. It is the body as a living organism that is denied. The openings of the body, those that are visible, such as the mouth or nose, but also those that are microscopic and that are in the epidermis, are covered and sealed. The combination brings the differentiated social body back to the larval state, taking it out of the human universe and bringing it into either entomology or robotics. Hospital caregivers removing their overalls in a hygienic room are human butterflies emerging from silk cocoons.
