Hamza Qassim worked on the Palestinian label Trashy Clothing’s summer 2021 campaign: In order for Lawrence to visit his friends in Ramallah, Palestine, he has to wait up to two hours to pass a checkpoint, whereas, without a checkpoint, the trip would be only around 20 minutes. To quickly pass though, Lawrence and his friends often dress in skimpier outfits, in hopes of appearing more Western or foreign. In turn, Trashy Clothing underscores this point with pieces that are as easily removable as possible, using accessible zippers and exaggerated slips. “People are often checked on how they look, so if you are dressing in less, you’re less likely to get stopped,” says Lawrence. “When I was younger and we’d go out, we’d put on foreign music, like Italian music, in the car to not be asked for IDs. If we were wearing jackets, we’d take them off. It’s the concept of undressing and being ready to get undressed at any point.”
Gabriela Hearst is choosing to focus on a specific climate solution in tandem with an overarching aesthetic reference each season. For AW22, this theme was ‘Rewilding’. A progressive approach to conservation that centres on allowing nature to take care of itself. By enabling natural processes to repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes, wildlife’s natural rhythms can ultimately create more biodiverse habitats. As part of her research, Hearst spoke to the British author Isabella Tree, whose latest book ‘Wilding — the Return of Nature to a British Farm’ charts the story of her pioneering Rewilding project on the West Sussex farm where she lives. Hearst asked Tree how she deals with climate anxiety, to which she replied, ‘By living in the solution.’
That did not mean however, that we didn’t see some digital presentations, as many designers continued to adopt less traditional ways of presenting their designs, whether through imagery, film or something else unique.

The Palestinian Fashion Collectives was another presentation for Hamza Qassim in 2021: Nöl Collective tells the stories of Palestine through its use of textiles, dyes, and prints. The collective engages with its homeland by centering nearly lost practices and art forms in every piece of clothing—think simple cotton fabrics printed with the fruits and plants of Palestinian land, and multihued striped pockets made with ancient embroidery techniques. “Clothing is inherently political in every way,” says Yasmeen Mjalli, the collective’s creative director and founder. “It’s political in the way that the clothing of oppressed people is used to tell stories of historical and contemporary power dynamics.”
