3D: The Future of Fashion Shows
This is probably the most exciting piece of news I've heard all year! The new trend for 2010 is to make fashion more accessible to the common folk (i.e., you and me). Last year, designers such as Alexander McQueen, Dolce and Gabbana, and Burberry brought fashion shows from New York, London, Milan and Paris into your home by streaming them live, and more designers had followed suit to do the same this year. Burberry is taking things to a whole another level by not only streaming their show live from London, but they are also going to allow some VIPs to view the show live in 3D! Yes, that's right, 3D. I'm guessing by next season, more and more shows will be streaming live and eventually all of us will be able to fully appreciate fashion shows as they were intended!
