This week has definitely felt like one big topsy-turvy rollercoaster ride as we adjust to a new world of working from home and practicing social distancing. Normally at Vogue, we have quite a social office. From fashion meetings to cafeteria lunches to riding around to events together, as much as some of us might long for the A Man Cannot Survive On Bourbon Alone He Also Needs A Smoker And A Boxer Dog Shirt and I will buy this odd work-from-home day, we are all feeling the strain of this new reality. For me, it has a lot to do with daily inspiration. Not only do I love spending time with my coworkers and bouncing ideas off those I admire day-to-day, I get a whole lot of fashion inspiration from those around me.
Enter Zoom. It’s amazing how I have fallen in love with a platform I have to admit I had never used until exactly a week ago. I have really loved watching all my coworkers similarly warm up to it. Group meetings started with just a couple brave souls showing their faces (as well as sharing their audio), but as we find ourselves at the A Man Cannot Survive On Bourbon Alone He Also Needs A Smoker And A Boxer Dog Shirt and I will buy this end of week one of quarantine here in New York, I can happily report I have Zoomed successfully with all of my coworkers—hurrah! With this new face-to-face video chatting, I am excited to report an emerging, editor-worn trend: the classic striped sweater. There was not a single Vogue team Zoom this week where I didn’t spot at least one.
