SEE IT LIVE
As more designers have begun to stream live videos of their runway shows, the quality of said videos has improved. Gone are the days when smudges of models walked in what looks like it might be a dress with some sort of print, but could very well have been a monochromatic pantsuit. This season you’ll find high quality video footage at a number of different camera angles (barring any technological difficulties, of course).
Happily, this season presents fans with a number of live streaming options. Sign up for a free account with First Comes Fashion to see shows from Rebecca Minkoff (3:00 pm, Friday), Jill Stuart (11:00 am, Saturday), Thakoon (6:00 pm, Sunday) and Oscar de la Renta (6:30 pm, Tuesday). Registering for the site will grant you access to a custom calendar and daily reminders, ensuring that you won’t miss a show.
For a live feed hub that’s as smartphone-friendly as it is accessible, turn to YouTube’s “Live From the Runway” channel. Keep it open in a window on your computer all week to check out shows from Charlotte Ronson (7:00 pm, Friday), Hervé Léger (3:00 pm, Saturday), Diane von Furstenberg (4:00 pm, Sunday) and Michael Kors (10:00 am, next Wednesday), among others.
Marc Jacobs will be streaming video feeds on his own website, as opposed to turning to an outside hosting source. Tune in at 8:00 pm on Monday for his namesake collection, and again at 4:00 pm the next day for the presentation of his secondary line, Marc by Marc Jacobs.
