COVID-19 changed the world two years ago. The years 2020 and 2021 will a remembered for their far-reaching effects on social, economic, cultural, and mental health. This feature analyzes the impact of these changes on world fashion. And also thinks about its new face in 2022 and beyond.

According to the October 2021 IMF forecast, the country’s economy. Is expected to grow by 5.9 percent by 2021 and by 4.9 percent by 2022 compared to 2020 percent growth by (-) 3.1 percent. Growing economic growth reflects a positive outlook for progress. Beauty has even greater weight when it comes to the last two years of the COVID-19 epidemic. That has disrupted the lives of millions of people worldwide. And ruined their lives while disrupting international trade, tourism, the economy, and consumption patterns. Fashion, being the use of choice, struck a chord.

How fashion was disrupted

From China in 2020, the COVID-19 virus spread slowly but steadily throughout. The year and by 2021 released a variant that created deadly waves after wave. Its presence has led to an ongoing series of land closures, traffic restrictions, social isolation, and other appropriate COVID conduct in various parts of the world. Circumstances have left the retail industry, part of the fashion, in particular, is a complete diversity that contributes to sales, profits, inventory, jobs, and the entire ecosystem.

The global fashion industry, valued at $ 3 billion, generates 2 percent of the GDP of the world, and when such an industry is affected the results are huge. The global fashion crisis began when people were asked to stay at home as a precautionary measure to contain the spread of the virus. Excluding any of their exits, markets, supermarkets, and department stores were also closed.

This does not allow for external purchases that force consumers to switch to online shopping. To make matters worse, authorities around the world have allowed the online shopping of only essential items, which limits the sale of nonessential items, including fashion, over time. As a result, fashion sales have declined and the list of attendees throughout the supply chain.

Orders have been canceled or downgraded or diverted to account for additional losses

At the same time, trapped global cargo and shipments threaten global shipping. The transportation of goods from markets to destinations has faced challenges and those that could have gone out could only go at a higher cost, consuming profit tracts.

Overcoming all these challenges, when different fashion goods opened up after a huge gap the demand for fashion items had taken the place of 360 degrees and ‘need’ instead of ‘longing’. Luxury and aspirational fashions were no longer needed and the need for fashion, other than very different, was reduced to mere essential items.

Work from home to reduce the sale of official clothing

There is no category of active dressing with protruding teeth; public distribution in a very limited fashion, requiring very few options already available in wardrobes; home confinement requires only a place of rest and comfort as a new purchase; Reduced festivals, festivals. And social gatherings were emphasized by beauty, fashion accessories & the need to wear long-term events; Also, the sale of school uniforms has also hit the ground running due to online education compensating school closures.

Not only did the working side suffer the most but the supply side had its misery as well. Global fashion brands in Europe, Asia, and the United States had to stop or delay forward-looking activities and business-building fashion shows, style forecasts, new growths, product launches, and other growth programs. The big fashion brands are suddenly starting to look at other aspects of their existence – charities, donations, social welfare, medical resources, sustainability, social responsibility, and the well-being of people unknowingly and global well-being.

What changed in 2021

The year 2021 began with the good news of the availability of various vaccines against COVID-19, accelerating major vaccination programs in many countries. The development brought relief and markets around the world began to reopen, reviving previously closed businesses.

And purchasing, re-inventing the product chain, switching to new operating models for businesses to continue. adopting new technologies, reviving marketing and distribution methods to meet uncertain future uncertainties, everything went on purpose. speed. Among the many developments, fashion has revived with short-term and long-term changes as the year 2021 nears its end.

As this feature a published the end-of-year estimates have a released. McKinsey’s joint report with The Business of Fashion estimates global fashion sales will exceed 2019 levels by 3-8 percent. And the strongest recovery can a seen in Chinese and US markets, followed by Europe. The reintroduction of the fashion industry’s V-shaped performance in the first half of 2021 signaled a possible return on profit in 2022. However, recovery a expected to have a different side as well. The combination of material shortages. Transport constraints and rising transportation costs will increase the cost of inputs by an average of 3 percent, forcing rising prices for consumers. This will require businesses to re-evaluate their supply models and focus on making these as flexible and robust as possible to navigate in the coming years.

Luxury fashion and shopping

While luxury retail has severely affected by 2020 due to land closures. And travel restrictions affecting the richest consumers, it has resurfaced in 2021 to some extent. As the year progressed, markets around the world continued to open. And by the end of the third quarter, many luxury brands reported positive changes. According to a study by Bain and Company in collaboration with Altagamma – Italy’s luxury trading platform. Global personal property sales will end in 2021 at $ 283 billion ($ 324 billion).

The projected figure will grow by one percent in 2019. And a 29 percent increase by 2020, although previous estimates did not expect to recover any time before 2022. As he predicted further, Bain predicted that luxury personal goods would continue. To rise in 2025, moving forward. between 5-9 percent of CAGR reaching € 360 to € 380 billion ($ 412- $ 435 billion).

A thousand years or Gen Y, as Bain calls them. And Gen Z buyers will account for about two-thirds (63 percent). Of the sale of luxury personal goods by 2021, up from 44 percent in 2019. By 2025, they will fill 70 percent of the total market as Gen X and Baby Boomers’ will influence and spend less money. Recognizing that the COVID-19 epidemic and recovery are rapidly changing structural changes in the luxury market. That will set the pace for the next decades of its emergence. Luxury brands will continue to redefine themselves. Expanding their work beyond art and beauty, into power. of social and cultural change.

On the other side of the spectrum

The luxury second market an expected to end by 2021 with 33 billion euros. The rapid growth in the luxury second-hand market is evidence. Of a change in the prices of the next generation of consumers. Where the more traditional cultural diversity offers an opportunity for inclusion. Under trend, consumers are embracing luxury brands a ‘price badge’ as opposed to the previous ‘wealth badge’. If this trend builds it will require a product change in the first luxury market. This is how the future of luxury can a summed up.

International tourism and experience luxury brands an expected to live fully revitalized by 2023. So in the meantime, to compensate for the loss of international buyers.
