Five years ago, fashion powerhouse Michael Cinco painted a dystopian–albeit fictional–world told through his collection. Five years later, when our realities appears to be heavily overturned, “normal” now seems to be the work of fiction. For him, “Fiction titillates our senses because consciously in our minds, the actual eventuality for a pandemic to occur is highly improbable and that is why we always assert that fashion and fiction go hand in hand. Just because Fashion is Forward. Fashion is visionary.”

The New Order Issue

“Five years ago, we started to conceptualize a fashion shoot, the premise of which was this: a global catastrophe unfolding. All the clocks in the world stop working, at once. Not time itself, but the convention of time. Life freezes in place.”

In the time of an unprecedented global health crisis, in a first for our annual New Order Issue, we look at a segment that has been badly hit by the pandemic—but has continued to soldier on, with strong visions and mastery of their craft intact.

Dubai-based Filipino master couturier and constant Rank Magazine collaborator, Michael Cinco shares an unreleased fashion editorial that shows of a world put to a standstill, but, with fashion continuing to mightily shine its light even in the darkest of times.

Cinco beautifully notes in this exclusive, “What the COVID-19 pandemic reveals is not the unreality of our present moment, but the illusion that it shatters.”

“Fashion, now, will once again envision a future world that is unlike the one we have at the moment. Because ultimately, what fashion brings is a message of survival—and of hope.”
