Fashion’s “new normal” is here.
On Tuesday, CR Fashion Book founder Carine Roitfeld announced that the second edition of CR Runway — which last year brought together the industry’s elite to showcase archival designs in Florence, Italy — will instead be produced remotely in collaboration with the amfAR Fund to Fight COVID-19 and streamed worldwide on crrunwayxamfar.org May 1 at 4 p.m. EST, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
The 30-minute virtual fashion show, titled “Fashion Unites” and hosted by YouTube’s director of fashion and beauty Derek Blasberg, will feature self-filmed clips of Karlie Kloss, Alessandra Ambrosio, Ashley Graham, Hailey Bieber, Adriana Lima, Joan Smalls, Amber Valletta, Winnie Harlow, Irina Shayk and more modeling pieces from their own personal wardrobes (styled remotely by Roitfeld and her team) while in self-isolation amid the pandemic.
“We created “Fashion Unites” with amfAR to safely celebrate the second edition of CR Runway for our communities across the world – offering a moment of hope, inspiration, and uplifting connection for those who are doing their part to self-isolate while helping to raise awareness for amfAR’s incredible coronavirus research efforts and expressing our gratitude for the real-life heroes who risk their lives fighting the pandemic on the front lines every day,” co-founder and president of CR Runway Vladimir Restoin-Roitfeld tells PEOPLE.
