Are you bummed you can't make it to the New York Fall fashion shows this year? Well cheer up, sunshine! US designers are coming to the rescue by broadcasting their shows live online, with Alexander Wang, Rodarte and Calvin Klein all jumping on the livestreaming bandwagon. Showstudio.com will be presenting both the Wang and Rodarte shows, while the CK show will be broadcast on calvinkleininc.com as well as Facebook.
While this is welcome news to most people, fashion insiders are lamenting that this could mean the end for future fashion week shows. US fashion writer Derek Blasberg recently tweeted his despair, "With all these shows streaming live online (Marc, Calvin, Burberry, etc), I shed a tear for the ultimate end of fashion week. It's coming." Boo. Do you think he has a point?
