Carine Roitfeld mobilizes great creators for a first confined fashion show
In support of research against the Covid-19, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, brings together great creators and celebrities for an unprecedented live performance on Friday May 1 at 10 p.m. on YouTube.
“By making fashion a way to express creativity in the service of health and safety around the world, we hope that this show will offer a little moment of hope, inspiration and a positive connection “Said Carine Roitfeld.
This new way of making a fashion show is inviting Virgil Abloh, Hailey Bieber, Maria Grazia Chiuri, Simon Porte Jacquemus, Irina Shayk, Alexander Wang, Kim Kardashian, Karlie Kloss, Ashley Graham and obviously other celebrities are included.
These names responded to Carine Roitfeld’s call to host her second CR Runway show, the first one took place last year in Florence. This time, it will be virtual and in partnership with amfAR: the American foundation that has funded research against AIDS since 1985. And who recently created the amfAR Fund to Fight Covid-19 to support the development of treatments for the coronavirus.
Entitled “CR Runway with amfAR against covid-19″, the thirty-minute virtual show visible in streaming, will be produced by the French filmmaker Fabien Constant, Michel Gaubert will be responsible of the music, and the fashion show will be animated by Derek Blasberg. The models will walk from their homes with pieces from their personal wardrobe selected and styled by the team of Carine Roitfeld.
