Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sit front row, a starlet on your right, a socialite on your left at a runway show?
Well, its possible…and with in-demand designers left to present this week, I suggest firing up the high-speed connection and logging onto msnvideo.com. Did you miss Marc Jacobs? I sure missed getting an invite…no worries, each day of Fall 2006 Olympus Fashion Week is archived, so you can back track.
IMG Fashion has collaborated with IMG Media creating live Web casts of the shows in the infamous Bryant Park tents at IMGfashionworld.com. B Productions is responsible for the taping of the runway shows. Shows are notorious for starting late thanks to paparazzi friendly celebs as well as those who arrive last minute to avoid the flash bulbs (or to solidify their status). It seems that IMG Media has handled any timing issues and the live streams have been fabulous. Makes me wonder how many writers, editors, and buyers decided to sit out the chaos of the tents in favor of online viewing- my guess not too many. In this industry it’s important to be and be seen.
