Wiki Loves Fashion is a campaign for writing on Wikipedia and other wiki projects about model biographies, fashion design and fashion brands, clothes and clothing industry, notable dresses, history of fashion and ancient fashion, textiles, accessories, and other items related to the ancient and contemporary fashion industry. The 2020 edition is a multilingual online edit-a-thon that takes place only online - due to the emergency due to the COVID-19 pandemic - from 21 September to 11 October 2020, during the 2020 Milan (22 - 28 September) and Paris Fashion Week (28 September - 6 October).

The campaign is cross-wiki, so you can contribute to the event not only by writing articles on Wikipedia. You can create new Wikidata items, or upload on Commons photos released under free licenses on Commons. You can decide to write an article on Wikinews or add a new entry on Wikiquote. You can also choose to add categories, to do the "dirty work" or to teach someone how to edit the Wikimedia projects. Every single act is valuable.
