Live Streaming 101

I am writing this down as London Fashion Week already started yesterday. No breaks, no interruption in the continuum of fashion weeks. New York FW finished on Thursday and it was a blast! It is the first season when live streaming has taken up a radically warm and friendly approach. While livestream is nothing without live commenting on the subject, twitter is a great supporter to fuel our talking desire. Together with Carola, Nookie, CinnamonAnna, Adina Necula, we commented everyting we saw on the runway. Adina wrote about it here and Nookie here. Actually, Adina also included some comments we made about the Calvin Klein FW 2010, right after the show went off air. Great idea!

For those of you who want to see London FW live, check out the schedule which is posted right here. Tune in and join the conversation on Twitter.

The collections which we saw in the above formula are: Rodarte, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Isaac Mizrahi, Calvin Klein Women's AW 2010. We sadly missed the livestreaming of Proenza Schouler, but we immediately shifted to Phillip Lim and Isaac Mizrahi.

This a special focus on the shoes from collections listed above:


And my absolute favorite piece was at the Isaac Mizrahi show:

There was another similar one, but worn as a backpack and lined with green fur. No photos of it, though. (God I hope they used faux fur on these!)

My special extra idea on what to do after the shows are over? Let the video run in another window so you can listen to the soundtrack all over again!

Update 14.30: The livestream for Kinder Aggugini AW 2010 just ended. A very cohesive collection, coming as an intelligent mix between soft and strong, rock'n roll with some historicals hints. Also, the colors were from all over the spectrum! Most designers just stick to a couple of hues and that's it. Then there are a select few collections which integrate successfully white, black, brown and everything in between. Simple but not underrated? I wish more shows would be like that: suited for both catwalk and street. Will post photos from this collection when they appear. It's a must!
Shhh! Adina Necula is gathering all our live comments on the Kinder Aggugini collection right here.

Edit: Attention all iPhone users!

As it landed in my inbox and into my attention, is has to be shared here. This year must be the best one for livestreaming as it opens to a larger public. It seems that the pioneering trend is taking over fast: Dolce&Gabbana is offering the opportunity to watch the upcoming F/W 2010/11 season fashion show live on iPhone.
The dates are:
- D&G > Thursday, 25th of February from 3pm (GMT +1);
- Dolce&Gabbana > Sunday, 28th of February from 1pm (GMT +1).
In 2005 Dolce&Gabbana was the first among fashion brands to broadcast the fashion shows live on its official website. This season the fashion shows will be available again on live.dolcegabbana.com, as well as on the brand’s official Facebook page.

Sweet treats,
Daiane
