During lockdowns, times of uncertainty, and depression many of us craved for something luxurious and did not stop shopping for rare and expensive items. Remember us wearing eveningwear at home, imagining ourselves at Red Carpet events? Well, yes, and while joy in lockdown comes in predictable doses, zoom styling and virtual fashion shows came to cheer us up and keep us inspired.
Starting in lockdown and continuing nowadays, virtual styling just like virtual fashion gives us an opportunity to find some of the best personal stylists and relax in the comfort of our own. As personal styling has always been considered a luxurious service for people of high class, nowadays its virtual alternative can fulfill the styling needs of a wider audience. It’s very easy and affordable to have an hour or more talking about the latest trends and getting some tips on refreshing your current wardrobe.
In addition to the affordability and comfort of meeting at any place, virtual styling is beneficial because personal stylists can quickly learn our tastes and discover how to make us more stylish and appealing. Many stylists also state that virtual styling wouldn’t work so well in pre-pandemic times simply because people wouldn’t have been open to that. However, nowadays when the world is so into digital and virtual communications, working via chat or a video call is becoming the new norm even for styling services.

So, let’s dive into the world of the most amazing virtual fashion shows and get inspiration for our awesome future outfits!
