Carine Roitfeld will make a further edition of CR Runwaybut this time will be very different to the edition that was in Florence, or which have been cured in Cannes. In collaboration with amfAR, the foundation to fight against HIV and makes galas in all the world, Roitfeld will present a fashion show to raise funds to combat the covid-19. Meet celebs of the industry as Karlie Kloss, Hailey Bieber, Kim Kardashian, Irina Shayk and also designers such as Virgil Abloh, Alexander Wang and Diane von Fürstenberg.
But the list does not end there. This parade virtual with cause, CR Runway x amfAR: Fashion Unites, meets supermodels as Alessandra Ambrosio, Adriana Lima, Stella Maxwell, Ashley Graham, Winnie Harlow, Amber Valletta, Carolyn Murphy, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, who also will perform in CR Runway this first of may. Due to the contingency, the gateway will be live-streamed from YouTube to the 3p.m., hour from the City of Mexico.
The coolest thing is that everything will be planned at a distance without fittings. The models that will walk in Fashion Unites dress designs of your own cabinets, designed remotely by Roitfeld. “For the first time, the stylists gave life to their visions without the use of his hands, the models were in charge of the photos from behind the camera and I learned how to design styles using only what I could see through a video call on my phone,” said Carine.
