Runway shows used to be exclusive events for fashion industry insiders, but with the rise of blogging, social media, and the “democratization” of fashion, fashion week shows are no longer just for the fashion elite.
In the past couple of years, the fashion week experience suddenly started opening up to everyone. A person doesn’t even need to be in NYC, Paris, London, or Milan to see the collections right away. Designers, in collaboration with sites like style.com, began streaming their shows live on the internet. At first it was just a few shows here and there that, but things have advanced pretty quickly.
For the S/S 2014 season, virtually every major runway show will be streamed live on the internet. Even better, instead of having to search through multiple sites to find a certain designer’s show, they’re now all in one place. Thanks to fashionweekonline.com, it’s never been easier to watch live streams of the shows straight from fashion week. With a full schedule of designer shows and continuous streaming, anyone in the world can be a fashion week attendee.
