imagine that

October 12, 2020

One of the silver linings of Covid, is seeing how imaginative and resourceful people can be in times of challenge. We’ve watched neighbourhood restaurants morph into gourmet grocers, florists sending stems with build-your-own-bouquet videos, and dozens of gyms and fitness centres taking their workouts into the woods. This summer, I watched my friend, Lily turn her drive and garage into a creative heaven for neighbourhood children. Lily’s grassroots camp provided jobs for local teenagers, and kept the younger children in her neighbourhood safe and engaged. My friend, Jessica, a Mum of two and a passionate cook, zoom-taught sprogs across the country to make bread sticks, croissants and sticky buns. “My mantra has been from the very beginning,” said Moschino head designer, Jeremy Scott, “my body may be in quarantine, but my mind isn’t.” I love this quote. It’s a solid reminder of how creative we can be despite limitations. This year, Moschino presented Spring 2021 in a very different way. Scott worked with Jim Henson’s famous Creature Shop to create a marionette puppet show titled, “No Strings Attached” in lieu of a traditional runway show. It’s kind of exquisite –– the dolls, the clothes, the imagination.
