Willowby Fall 2020
The Willowby Fall 2020 collection, "Lovestruck," is all about dreamy, romantic styles made for dancing the night away. Inspired by Watters's Dallas roots, this collection has a bit of big, bold Texas glam and Southwestern-boho influences. Think beads, lace, and lots of soft netting.
In accordance with our diversity pledge, it's our duty to note that at the time of publishing, this brand/designer did not include BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) in their Fall 2020 campaign imagery. We have since reached out to this brand/designer to encourage them to include BIPOC imagery in not only this season’s campaign but in future campaigns as well.
