Why we all love The Row AW20



The Row AW20 New York Fashion Week

The one show that dominated my NYFW social feeds? The Row AW20.

NYFW has wrapped and London is the latest port of call on the Fashion Month schedule. My New York highlights (from the comfort of my phone obvs) have been The Row, Raf Simons and Gabriela Hearst’s executive realness (you know how I feel about caps rn).
