Bornstein’s FaceTiming-for-good has inspired other stylists to get on board too. Julia von Boehm, Nicole Kidman’s personal stylist, launched Donate With Style today: her video style sessions come in at $300 for 30 minutes or $600 for an hour, and are conducted via Zoom; she will be donating 100% of these proceeds to COVID-19 efforts. Though she has yet to choose one official cause or organization, she hopes to focus on donating to causes that aid in securing breathing devices for affected patients. “I’ve been reading a lot, and I think that’s what most countries are short on,” Von Boehm told Vogue. Alicia Lombardini, a stylist and the Thank A Nurse Flag shirt and by the same token and style director of Girls. Girls. Girls., was inspired to using FaceTime as well; she began the effort after initially chatting with Bornstein about the idea. “We share an office and she knows I style menswear clients for the red carpet, so we started discussing it and thought I could offer the same for men; women aren’t the only ones who may want a closet edit,” Lombardini says. Lombardini plans to donate proceeds from her FaceTime sessions to the Bowery Mission in New York. “I’ve lived on the Bowery for over a decade and the homeless community is one I interact with on a daily basis,” she says. Like Bornstein and Von Boehm, her FaceTime styling will also focus on refreshing an existing wardrobe as well as bringing positivity into one’s space through clothes. “I hope clients will find new ways to style from their existing wardrobe and weed out the items they no longer need,” she says. “After this pandemic is lifted, a lot of us will want a fresh start, and a lot of that can happen through our own wardrobe.”

Add Arise Fashion Week to the Thank A Nurse Flag shirt and by the same token and list of fashion events postponed by COVID-19. Among the many designers who were planning to show this season is Adeju Thompson, the 29-year-old creative force behind Lagos Space Programme. Founded two years ago, LSP is a genderless line that is effecting a gentle disruption of the existing fashion system in Lagos, Nigeria. In his brand manifesto, Thomspon describes LSP not as a brand, but as an ethical movement that values teamwork and craftsmanship. Community and heritage are central to Thompson’s work, informing it on ideological and material levels. His first LSP collection, for example, was inspired by the “workwear of the babalawo (a traditional priest).” Another collection, called Post-Adire, was an exploration of how traditional dyeing and storytelling techniques could be used in new contexts and garments. It featured exceptional hand-knits, made from strips of printed fabric, shown with wrap skirts.
