In addition to making history as the first fashion show on Instagram, it’ll also serve as the longest fashion show EVER! Measuring in at 7 hours long! Sure it’s innovative, but can you imagine the disappointment if none of the revealed looks during this Instagram fashion show makes it to Instagram’s “Popular” page? (*WHOMP*)
You call it – Social media innovation or just a sign of the times? Remember this post New York Fashion Week Goes Digital – Fashion Feat Or Fail? expect to see more designers embracing social media platforms (while saving money on costs) emerging soon. Question is, are consumers going to embrace these changes or ultimately feel cheated out of the designer wooing they’re used to.
