Shefinds News: Fashion Week Wired
September 12, 2006
…and it’s not just caffeine and Kate Moss-esque vices.
The catwalks of New York Fashion Week extend right to your desk and now sashay into your living room. A multitude of streaming sites are giving fashion fanatics real-time access to the Olympus of fashion events. Vogue TV flies straight off the runway and MSN launched the shows live starting with Kenneth Cole. So is making the glitz and glamour just a mouse-click away a good or bad thing? Now browsers worldwide have front-row seats in Bryant Park, something usually reserved for celebs, socialites, and the cognoscenti.
New media mavens and bloggers have unprecedented access to the party. This coverage portends only good things for ready-to-wear designers. This is not haute couture protected from the plebs to maintain status. The immediate knowledge of what’s under the big top, provided by blogs and webTV, feeds fans and produces informed shoppers ready to buy because they feel privileged with insider information way before the spring issue of Vogue hits their mailbox.
