Teen Vogue announces virtual 2020 Generation Next class presentations
As Covid-19 continues to push major fashion events online, Teen Vogue has unveiled a virtual version of its Generation Next Class of 2020 Presentation Week.
The program, first launched in 2019 under Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Lindsay Peoples Wagner, provides mentorship and networking opportunities to up-and-coming fashion designers. This year's class consists of five designers, including New York-based designers Sheena Sood, founder of Abacaxi, and Edvin Thompson, founder of New York-based brand Theophilio, as well as London-based designers Elliss Solomon, founder of Elliss; Tolu Coker, founder of the namesake brand Tolu Coker; and Krystal Paniagua, founder of the eponymous brand, Krystal Paniagua.
Marking the second iteration of the initiative, the 2020 presentation week will run from October 12 to October 15 and will include short film presentations from each 2020 class designer, accompanied by lookbooks of each designer's favorite New York City muses in hand-selected pieces from their collections, Teen Vogue said.
Previously, the selected Generation Next designers held an in-person presentation of their collections during New York Fashion Week.
Each day of the presentation week, a different designer will be featured on Teen Vogue's site.
