The runway at New York Fashion Week.
In the old days, bloggers, fashion fans, and editors in the making alike counted on Style.com to keep up with the shows if they couldn’t make it to New York Fashion Week. Flipping through images from the shows was like the high school fashion fan’s daily meditation, paired with daydreams of the day that they would not only be able to go to New York, but also be able to sit front row (or sit at all) themselves. But those were simpler times, and the fashion world had not yet become the egalitarian (sometimes) free-for-all that it is now. Fashion Week has become fashion month; the tents have become Lincoln Center; everyone from the old standby designers to the scrappy up-and-comers, to everyone else in between has a show; and now, as of this season, all of the shows taking place at Lincoln Center can also come directly to your computer, iPad, or other device via Mercedes Benz Fashion Week’s official livestreams. Both at newyork.mbfashionweek.com and facebook.com/mbfashionweek, the streams will allow you to watch tons of shows, right along with your favorite bloggers, editors, and photographers. Want to feel like you’re sitting with us at Rebecca Minkoff, Mara Hoffman/, Charlotte Ronson, and more? Here’s your ticket, and it’s a lot cheaper than a flight to New York, a lot warmer than being here, too.
New York Fashion Week takes place from February 7th to the 14th, and it’s going to be a doozy. The new livestream isn’t the only change that’s happening up at Lincoln Center, either. With a number of designers choosing to sit out fashion week this year, media and insiders alike are feeling like times, they are a-changin’ in the big apple. We agree, and are curious to see how things turn out, but we’re more excited to see all of our fave designers new collections and follow all of the mayhem, from the runways, to the parties, to social media. Plenty of surprises are in store, for sure, and we can’t wait to bring it all to you.
