The USA men have one shot left to avoid historic Olympic track ignominy [Video]

The fashion industry was impacted by the coronavirus pandemic quickly and literally. Northern Italy was the first area outside of China that the virus spread to, and the outbreak began during the throes of Milan Fashion Week. Giorgio Armani was the first designer to cancel his runway show, and soon after the hundreds of editors, models, influencers, and other industry figures in attendance flocked back to their respective corners of the globe.
