Year in Review: Top 10 Fashion Stories of 2020

What a year. From the pandemic to the quest for social justice, 2020 was a lot. Now as we get ready to welcome 2021, it’s time to look back at all the top 2020 fashion stories that really left their mark.

The pandemic changed the way magazines approached content and covers and forced designers to rethink the traditional runway show. Red carpet events were canceled or moved online with varying degrees of success. Due to our changing way of life, fashion-forward face masks and loungewear became hot commodities.

The Black Lives Matter movement also impacted the industry. It sparked a reckoning in the publishing world and led to more inclusive ad campaigns. At least for the time being.

Other notable headlines include designers both leaving and signing on to fashion houses, Raf Simons’ first Prada show along with Harry Styles wearing a Gucci dress on the cover of Vogue. And Kamala Harris wowing in suffragette white for her history-making acceptance speech.

Read on to discover the top 10 2020 fashion stories we’re still talking about.
