There was an undisputed vein of optimism linking together this season’s various virtual offerings, a sense of the long gloom finally lifting, replaced with a wet-nosed readiness to re-enter all that was hastily left behind.

Williams’ sci-fi-esque collaboration with Jordan Hemingway, it’s almost tempting to say the change in global circumstances has yielded an accidental blessing by shaking up an increasingly stale runway format.

You’re welcome!
