This week is typically when Vogue Runway editors attend runway shows and presentations all over the city to cover the new bridal collections. That isn’t the case this season, of course: In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Bridal Week was canceled, along with the resort 2021 shows in May, the menswear shows in June, and couture week in July. While those ready-to-wear collections will likely be viewed by editors and buyers remotely—perhaps with an assist from livestreams or virtual reality—bridal designers didn’t have as much time to prepare. In mid-March, the Bridal Council announced that the spring 2021 bridal shows were “going digital” with Zoom videos and online galleries, but we’ve learned that many designers haven’t had the time or finances to pull off those virtual experiences. Several of them haven’t even finished making their gowns, since New York factories and studios were closed right in the middle of production.
