With its pre-game detoxes, jutting clavicles and sanitised Cinderella moments sponsored by luxury conglomerates, the awards red carpet has long set the standard for unattainable beauty and globally palatable fashion. And then Covid-19 happened.

Reviewed: Why the Fashion Set Loves Caes

Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your business?

Before launching Caes, I worked as a designer for many years on huge collections that had to fall within a strict framework of (seasonal) styles, budget, and time, as is the case with most fashion brands.
