voguemagazine Following the thread of our "In VOGUE: The 1990s" podcast, we are closing out the year and heading into the new one with a series of newly digitized archival shows from the decade that fashion can’t—and won’t—let go of.

voguemagazine Many of this year's holiday celebrations happened entirely on Zoom, and photographer @ThomasDworzak has made it his goal to document this new normal. From the early days of lockdown at the beginning of the year, Dworzak has been joining Zoom groups and observing how our most hallowed rituals—everything from election night parties to funerals—have translated to the digital sphere.
“I could have photographed this year in a more traditional way, but somehow I figured I should do it differently,” says Dworzak. “I didn't really want to go out and take photos of this empty world, and meanwhile, there was this whole other world appearing on Zoom.” As the holiday season approached, Dworzak began reaching out to communities and asking if he could join their Zoom calls; eventually moving from one video call to the other almost non-stop. “I’m glad to be finally off my computer,” he laughs.
At the link in our bio, a document of how communities, whether religious or cultural, have found ways to connect this holiday season—and in particular the way in which they’ve been able to find moments of joy and levity from afar. Photographed by @thomasdworzak / @magnumphotos
voguemagazine For @JenkinvanZyl 's personal beauty codes, having fun with the execution is more important than technical precision. “I endeavor not to take it all too seriously,” van Zyl says. “I still operate out of a plastic shopping bag filled with exploded makeup!” At the link in our bio, watch the London-based artist and filmmaker create a “latex wrestler cowboy” #extremebeauty look.
voguemagazine “What I am now never existed before," Pierre Cardin declared in Vogue in 1982. The designer, who passed away at the age of 98, was a masterful tailor who played with the contrast between geometric strictness and voluptuous curves. He was also a man of action, telling Vogue: “I’m most happy that I remained in creation, always remaining popular and always continuing to create.”

voguemagazine 2020 was a tough year for fashion. At times, the future of the industry seemed incredibly uncertain. This wasn’t the moment to throw up our hands in defeat, though. Designers who embraced change and viewed 2020 as an opportunity to redefine fashion’s importance delivered some truly unforgettable moments. They gave us new ways to engage with fashion—through video games, livestreams, augmented reality, and even DIY experiments—and, in many ways, helped bring the business back down to earth.
As we head into 2021 with hope and optimism, we’re revisiting the moments that shaped 2020 and continue to push fashion forward. Tap the link in our bio to see them now.
