Photos: Masks and no air kissing at Covid-era catwalks in Milan

Updated On Jul 15, 2020 07:16 PM IST

As the COVID-19 pandemic forced luxury houses to shut shops and idle manufacturing sites, brands cancelled events or opted for audience-free, digital-only formats, such as the Paris Haute Couture showcase earlier this month. The French fashion world aims to return to physical shows in September. However, Italian brands Dolce & Gabbana and Etro held physical shows with guests on Wednesday. These will be the first real-world fashion events by major luxury labels since the easing of lockdown restrictions in much of Europe. Staff, models and guests have all received safety instructions and must respect social distancing rules. Masks will be compulsory backstage and for the audience.
