Tokyo Fashion week is usually during March 16th – March 21st. Many other fashion weeks have also been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak. Fashion weeks such as Shanghai, Beijing, and Seoul have been canceled. Milan Fashion week was done early due to the virus as well.

With these fashion shows being overseas in the China area causes lots of influencers, bloggers, buyers, and models scared to attend because of the deadly virus. With these shows being canceled, it puts many designers in jeopardy. This due to the fact that this seasons collection wont be picked up by buyers to put in their department stores and they will not be able to get the exposure that they need to become a household design brand.

The Coronavirus is now killing the overseas fashion industry.
