'Tis the Season of the Spectator



Fashion Week starts preeeetty soon (for many, the festivities have already begun). I wanted to kick off Fashion Week in my own little way by writing a post for my NYFW predictions.  But until I read The Cut's seasonal One Word Inspiration post, chocked full of hints, I haven't a clue of what's in store for Fall 2010.  You never know what could happen in fashion!  HOWEVER, I do know that quite a few designers are taking their shows to the net!  A number of shows will be streamed live on the internet and you will be able to watch them from the comfort of your own home!  The surreal position of sitting amongst the fashion elite and being one of the first to watch next season's collection walk down the runway has become a reality!  Or at least a virtual reality.  Christopher Bailey of Burberry and Alexander McQueen both started this trend last season and hopefully the buffering rates won't be as frustrating this season.  Here are a few shows you've been invited to:
