“COVID-19 is pushing fashion labels to reimagine everything. Many brands and retailers have had to rethink how they have traditionally promoted themselves. At Facebook, we think that this behavioral shift is an invitation for brands to relook at digital’s role in the omnichannel, and more importantly, reimagine the product experience. Our platforms host a huge range of short-form, long-form, and interactive content formats – be it Facebook Like or Instagram Shops that can be used to chic effect for storytelling. AFW is the 5th largest fashion week globally; we are happy to partner with them and empower the region’s creative community of designers and stylists to bring, for the first time, an exclusive original fashion content on the platform from the region.” attributed to Joana Jamil, Strategic Partner Manager, MENA, Public Figures & Social Influencers at Facebook.
