“For Virtual Fashion Week 2021 we’ve put together a dynamic schedule featuring a diverse range of talented emerging and established designers and artists, along with a ton of beautiful, iconic locations to host the shows,” said Vanja Vasic, founder and executive director of FAT.

“One of the best things about having to host our event virtually is that we’ve been able to reach an even wider and global audience, as well as share more behind-the-scenes content than ever before. It takes of ton of work and lots of talented people to put on a fashion show, and we want to celebrate every moment and person involved. Even though our friends and guests can’t see the shows in person right now, they’ll still be able to feel like they are a part of the action,” Vasic added.
