Fashion Week struts its stuff
New York Fashion Week kicks off today through Sept. 15 and you don’t need a pricey ticket to enjoy all the action. The Daily Dot compiled the best places around the web to catch it all, so straighten out your shirt and look presentable.
YouTube is live-streaming many designer’s shows on its LiveRunway channel. The action starts this morning with designers varying from Rebecca Taylor to Vivienne Tam.
If YouTube isn’t live-streaming your favorite designer, the New York Times compiled a handy list of other designers showing off their couture on their own outlets. First Come Fashion will also archive runway shows and behind the scenes interviews on its website when it launches on Friday.
Like every live event, it wouldn’t be complete without the candid takes only users on Twitter can provide. The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) has a list of designers on Twitter who are tweeting every moment of the next week. The title sponsor, Mercedes-Benz, is live tweeting from @MBFashionWeek and NYFW has its own feed at @NYFW. Not shockingly, the official hashtag is #NYFW.
Tumblr, which is embroiled in a bit of controversy over its coverage of NYFW (Tumblr is charging designers upwards of $10,000 for private events with its chosen bloggers), has its own sleek coverage of the event. And if your interested in a certain designer, like Richard Chai, just search for the tag and up pops pictures and videos.
And let’s not forget about fashion stalwarts, like Women’s Wear Daily (some is paywall protected) and New York Magazine who will feature runway-to-runway coverage that will keep you entertained for hours.
