18th September 2012

Technology has influenced fashion on so many levels, and as the industry continues to explore new digital mediums, we learn how magical things can be when the fantasy of fashion marries the power of technology.

Take for instance New York Fashion Week. During the last couple of years (or in fashion terms; seasons), renowned designers like Oscar de la Renta, Prabal Gurung, Donna Karan, and Marc Jacobs have flocked to live video streaming—giving a new generation of digital followers the ultimate Fashion Week experience through backstage coverage and live video broadcasting from the front-row of their runway shows.

Furthermore, these fashion houses have also jumped on the social media bandwagon where through platforms such as Twitter and Pinterest, they’ve spun full-fledged fashion celebrities like Aliza Licht of Donna Karan also known as @dkny and Erika Bearman of Oscar de la Renta also known as @oscarprgirl. These socialmedialites have taken desirable high-end brands and placed them right on the fingertips of their consumers.


During NY Fashion Week this season, the models walking the Diane von Furstenberg show sported camera-embedded glasses designed by Google that filmed all of the runway action from a model’s point-of-view. These techy specs also function as a screen and are embedded with a monitor and microphone that can be used to play videos, send text messages and even video conferencing.

New York Fashion Week

Today is the first day of New York Fashion Week and I’m sad to have canceled my biannual trip to the big apple for the main event in an effort to meet the deadlines of a project I’m working on. Sure, it’s a huge and exciting project which I can’t wait to share with all of you, but inevitably I can’t help but wish I was at Lincoln Center right now. To soothe my battered soul, I dug up this video of me and JoJo at New York Fashion Week and Fashion’s Night Out last September.

Fun Fact: We were on tour when this video was shot. Our tour schedule enabled us to detour to NY on our way to Toronto and allowed us a day at NYFW. We attended a couple of shows during the day, including Tadashi Shoji (in the video), and at night we celebrated Fashion’s Night Out at the UGG store (also in the video). Less than 24 hours later we were back on the tour bus en route to Canada. Such a crazy and fun experience.

JoJo’s essential wardrobe item

"Butt jeans" — a pair of jeans that make your butt look good.

What we wore

Jojo is wearing a Tadashi Shoji dress (we were at his show), Senso Australia boots, and Fendi bag. I’m wearing an H&M shirt, Burberry jeans, Michael Kors sneakers and Tom Ford specs.

There’s more! Click Here to see all of my NYFW coverage from past seasons.

Sh*t Fashion Girls Say
…at New York Fashion Week

The Platform channel on YouTube is killing it with their Sh*t Fashion Girls Say series. They’re hilarious and I’m utterly obsessed with the bearded lady.

"Fashion Week is the only time I go above 14th Street."

"I’m on my way to Lincoln Center. I’m on my way to Milk."

"If this outfit doesn’t get me on the Street Style blogs…I give up!"

"Do you think Tommy Ton would wanna shoot these shoes?"

"If you stand at the right your name goes in the caption."

"Is this a little too CeeLo Green?"

"My scheg is cray cray."

"She said she was wearing Jason Wu. It was Jason Wu for Target."

"If you’re not in the first two rows, you don’t matter."

"Who handles the PR for this show? It’s mega disorganized."

"How do you say Andrej Pejić? Andrej Pejić makes me question a lot of things.”

"These are cab-to-curb heels only."

"I’m worries that they’re gonna think we’re PR because we’re wearing all black."

"It was a great collection. Terrible styling."

"If you had to be one Prabal, Preen or Proenza Schouler, who would you be?"

"What are you doing between Wang and Altuzarra?"

"Victoria Beckham is a space alien from Planet Fashion."

"Oh my God chic! Chic-i-i-hee-ee! Che-eek! She’s putting the chic back into chic. Super chic. It’s almost too chic. You’re bringing chic to the next lev, hashtag chic-to-next-lev."

"She’s still wearing the Miu Miu glitter booties."

"The collection was meh, but the party was totes amaze!”

"Off duty, my booty!"

"I’m gonna be late!" *click*click*click*

In case you missed it! Here is Sh*t Fashion Girls Say Part One and Part Two

Totes amaze hashtag dying

New York Fashion Week
GANT by Michael Bastian F/W 12
The collection was inspired by Michael Bastian’s personal memories and experiences of living in Boston during his college years in the mid ’80s, and the unique style of the time. In term, these memories brought a classic preppy style with sport utility and a kiss of MOD revival.

"Looking back, despite the fact that we were all broke college students, I think we always felt we were very lucky to be together and sharing these experiences in this great city."

In addition, he added an extra layer to the collection — the idea of luck and the concept of having a lucky day. Bastian is a big believe in certain objects possessing a kind of good energy. Even if its a lucky coin you keep in your pocket all the time, not necessarily to pull luck towards you, but as a reminder to be open to the good things in the world. A kind of friendly talisman reminding you that luck is what you make of it.
In that spirit, the brand has created a special coin that is on the hangtag of every piece of clothing in the collection. In hopes the wearer puts it in their pocket or key ring, and use it as a reminder that luck is always around the corner if you just look for it.
The presentation was divided into the following themes: Snowglobe Box, Mod Room, Illusion Wall, Graffiti Wall, and Boxing Ring. As you can see from the video I’ve created, this presentation was one hell of a party. I walked in and felt like I was walking into a set of a holiday commercial. There was a DJ with great music, camera flashes everywhere, a bar, and snow coming down from the ceiling. Such a phenomenal way to end Fashion Week.

In that spirit, the brand has created a special coin that is on the hangtag of every piece of clothing in the collection. In hopes the wearer puts it in their pocket or key ring, and use it as a reminder that luck is always around the corner if you just look for it.

The presentation was divided into the following themes: Snowglobe Box, Mod Room, Illusion Wall, Graffiti Wall, and Boxing Ring. As you can see from the video I’ve created, this presentation was one hell of a party. I walked in and felt like I was walking into a set of a holiday commercial. There was a DJ with great music, camera flashes everywhere, a bar, and snow coming down from the ceiling. Such a phenomenal way to end Fashion Week.
