Just read on nitrolicious that Alexander Wang and Rodarte are both going to be streaming their Fall 2010 fashion shows live online. This is amazing! The advent of real-time internet media is allowing so many people the chance to experience something they'd otherwise never get to. It's also quite an ingenious marketing device, I'm sure more people will be tempted to splurge on their garments if they got to see it live on a runway.
Though this begs the question: if seating at a fashion is a designation of one's position within the hierarchy, what place does that put us bottom-feeders who are watching the fashion show online in our underwear at home? Naturally, the standing overflow crowd at the shows won't have a reason to feel like such plebians.
Alexander Wang will be streamed live on Saturday, February 13th at 5:00 PM EST (4:00 PM for us Chicagoans), and Rodarte will be live on Tuesday, February 16th at 12:00 PM EST (11:00 AM CST). The shows will available for viewing here. Can't wait!
