Ever dream of snagging a front row seat near Anna Wintour at the Diane von Furstenberg runway show or near Kim and Kanye at Alexander Wang at New York Fashion Week? While it is not possible for most of us to have such incredible seats (or any seats) at Fashion Week starting today, the individual designers, reporters and fashion week organizers will be bringing the trends to you through various social media platforms so you can catch the catwalk in sweats from the privacy of your own home.
An article in yesterday’s Mashable listed the best resources to watch fashion week from your desktop, laptop or mobile device. More than 30 brands will stream shows live on YouTube, representing a 17 percent increase from last year, according to the article. You can check out commentary from the organizers via Twitter by tracking hashtags #nyfw and #mbfw (the official site for Mercedes Benz’ Fashion Week). Reporters from various publications including Women’s Wear Daily and The Wall Street Journal will also run Twitter feeds. In addition, expect photos from Instagram users, Tumblr devotees, and Pinterest pinners, in addition to coverage on more traditional fashion blogs like style.com and The New York Times’, On the Runway.
