#GOODQuestions with Victor Glemaud

#GOODSource
How was the process of sourcing and designing different this season compared to past seasons?
Fall/Winter 2021 collection was conceived, designed, and developed in quarantine. So in a word, remote.

#GOODInspo
Who or what was the source of inspiration for the collection?
New York City! From Queens to Manhattan, my mind’s eye was filled with a wealth of memories to explore.

#GOODLuck
Do you have any day of show rituals that bring you good luck?
I typically have dinner with family and friends after the show. Cannot wait for this ritual to return when we resume in-person runway shows again.

#GOODLooks
What’s your favorite look or piece from the collection and why?
The shoes! It was my first time designing them.

#GOODGirl
Who is the woman you design for? Who is your muse?
I design for all people.

#GOODPractice
What measures did your team take to work efficiently but stay safe while producing this collection? How has COVID-19 affected the way that your brand has approached fashion week and the presentation of new collections?
Luckily, no one got sick. We all wear masks, wash our hands often, and I spray everyone I come in contact with at the studio with Jao Hand Sanitizer.
It’s all virtual. For now.

#GOODFeels
Do you think it’s important virtual shows recreate the vibe of a show or create an entirely new experience?
Virtual shows cannot replicate an in-person runway. It is different and for now we just adapt, pivot our plan, and as always keep the focus on the collection.

Were there any experiences or lessons that you’ll take away from this unique season?
Make less and design better.

#GOODMemories
Tell us about a favorite fashion week memory.

#GOODMorning
What’s your morning routine? What’s the first app you open each day?
I drink water and hit the emails immediately so I can catch Asia and Europe.

#GOODVibes
Who in your life brings you good vibes and positive energy every day?
My husband.
