Technology makes Fashion Week accessible to all

Fall is arguably the best season of the year for numerous reasons, a major one being Fashion Week, which features Spring/Summer collections for 2017.
 The shows go on for approximately three or four weeks, the first week of shows starting in New York City and then heading abroad. New York Fashion Week starts things off with the first week of shows running from Sept. 7 to 15. The shows in London commence on Sept. 16,and end on Sept. 20.
 Milan Fashion Week follows, starting the day after on Sept. 21. The last of Milan Fashion Week and the start of the last round of shows in Paris overlap, both being scheduled on Sept. 27. Popular upcoming shows and designers to watch this season range from musicians-gone- designers such as  Kanye West, and Rihanna, who is expected to release her collection at Paris Fashion Week, to classic household names who are presenting ready-to-wear collections, such as  Ralph Lauren, Jeremy Scott, Alexander McQueen, Derek Lam, Michael Kors, and more. We will also see some other alternative route designers this season, like Gigi Hadid, a model, who has collaborated with Tommy Hilfiger on a collection which is set to be displayed at New York Fashion Week, where she will also walk the runway.
For those who are not lucky enough to travel to the shows, live streams have been set up to broadcast on Vogue.com, and many designers will also be livestreaming their shows on their own websites. Vogue will also be posting each individual look of every collection if you’re not able to catch the live stream.. Junior Charlotte Taylor was surprised when she learned she could see any collection after it had debuted, “I don’t usually have enough time to dedicate to an entire livestream, so it’s nice that if need be I can easily access new collections.” Thanks to technology, everyone can experience fashion week.
