Fashion industry reels as coronavirus shuts shops and cancels orders. The coronavirus pandemic has plunged the $2.5tn (£2tn) global fashion industry into crisis with a “significant number” of firms expected to go bust in the next 18 months, putting millions of jobs at risk.
Global fashion sales are predicted to fall by up to 30% in 2020 and the luxury end of the market will be even harder hit, with sales slumping by up to 40%, according to a bleak report by the Business of Fashion (BoF) and consultants McKinsey. If stores remain shut for two months, McKinsey projects that 80% of listed fashion companies in Europe and North America will be in financial distress.

You could work when they are well educated by well educated professional people. You must think that you could "haute couture" them when they are at home. But the truth is haute couture needs more process, man-hours, capital and cooperation. After 4 weeks quarantine with 3 kids, I have to couture 2 and let 1 go, at the same time I have to study for my own program or work for other case.
