New York Fashion Week: Jason Wu, Markarian, and Private Policy Try to Rouse Us From Our Sweatpants

Once again, New York Fashion Week —er, the newly renamed “American Collections Calendar”—is a mostly digital affair, with one exception: the opener, aka Jason Wu’s fall show.

Unlike the audience, models did not wear masks, signaling an unsaid promise (or maybe jinx)—by the time these clothes hit stores in the fall, maybe we will have some semblance of normalcy as we go about our days and errands.

If the name Markarian sounds familiar to you, it’s probably because that's the line Jill Biden ’s team plucked from relative obscurity to wear for the presidential inauguration last month.

Private Policy's fall collection, “We Remember You,” honors the Chinese workers who built America's transcontinental railroad, while examining how the era’s xenophobia continues to the present.

“No longer silenced, people are speaking up about the past and ongoing racism, violence, and prejudice against Asian communities,” show notes read.

The line’s creative directors Haoran Li and Siying Qu chose to showcase their clothing in a series of TikTok dance videos.
