And we suspect it won’t be their last spin down the runway.

New York Fashion Week is officially underway for the Spring 2021 season, though it looks a little different from past seasons. With social distancing measures still very much in effect across the States, many designers have opted to show virtually or have decided to forgo showing entirely in favour of a new fashion system. Some, however, have pressed ahead with in-person shows, including Jason Wu who showed his latest collection yesterday with Pose star Indya Moore making their NYFW debut for the brand.

Not only did Moore make their debut, they opened the Tulum-inspired show, which took place at the Spring Studios Terrace. For their turn down the runway, Moore wore a burnt orange-hued summer dress with eyelet detailing at the hem, which was accessorized with beaded necklaces, earrings and striped sandals.

Sharing a photo with Wu on Instagram, Moore wrote, “@jasonwu invited me to open his show. Thank you so much! This is the first NYFW show I’ve ever walked. I’m so proud of Jason’s line, the fabric is incredible. It’s sturdy, soft and the clothing fits like a glove. Well done!”

The show was attended by just 36 guests, all of whom were seated a safe distance apart and given custom face masks with the words “Distance Yourself From Hate” on them. According to Associated Press, proceeds from the masks will be donated to New Yorkers in need – and more than 2,000 of them have been sold since June. Furthermore, the custom black-and-white printed chairs upon which the guests sat for the event will be donated to HIV and Aids advocacy organization GMHC for use in their new dining room.

On why he wanted to hold an in-person show, Wu shared with the outlet, “I think the world needs beauty and optimism. New York Fashion Week is not over. It is strong. We’re here… We can all be safe, be gathered and still be able to celebrate.”
