Written by Leah Dolan, CNN

Star-studded front rows, outlandish set designs and the world’s culture capital waiting just beyond the runway — Paris Fashion Week has always been a theatrical celebration of fashion’s very best.

The state of fashion may seem a bit dreary these days, but New York Fashion Week launched its mostly-virtual showings with a somewhat surprising — and much needed — spring in its step, almost quite literally.

Of the first handful of brands to show during the week (which officially runs from February 18, though many of the usual names are showing beyond the calendar), many — including Ulla Johnson and Zero + Maria Cornejo — offered a kind of wardrobe that suggested an easing back into public life come fall.

Fashion Week Fall 2021 Street Style: The Best Plus-SIze Outfits

Out of all the things we miss about life before the pandemic, getting dressed-dressed falls somewhere in our top five. Remember commuting to work in non-stretchy pants? Taking risks with cutouts and deep-V necklines? Slipping on a pair of heels (then ultimately slipping them off an hour later, because, ouch)? Sigh.

Once again, we’re witnessing history as designers present their fall-winter collections amidst a global pandemic. An act of resilience, the new season showcases not only an adaptable industry staying afloat, but the sheer force of creativity at a time when many of us struggle with lockdown fatigue. Brands continue to stray from the traditional fashion schedule—CFDA chairman Tom Ford announced the official renaming of New York Fashion Week the as”American Collections Calendar”—but we’re not lacking the luster from the magic of the runway, even if we’re watching from the comfort of our own screens.
