Watch Fashion Week Without Stepping Foot Outdoors
Baby it’s snowy outside. And while most fashion week events scheduled for today claim they’ll carry on, rain or snow, it’s hard to say the same for the crowds. This weather makes it incredibly difficult to muster the motivation to trek beyond one’s front door. Good news for all of the fashion-obsessed homebodies: there’s plenty of insider, behind-the-scenes coverage coming to a computer or premium cable television near you. (And I’m not just talking about all of the crystal-popping goodness going on over at Bravo’s new gem “Kell on Earth.”)
Nick Knight–the photographer and digital media maven behind Show Studio–is presenting the first-ever live streams of shows from both Rodarte and Alexander Wang. Meanwhile, Calvin Klein (both men’s and women’s), Ports 1961 and Marc Jacobs will be doing so as well via respective outlets.
As for pre-recorded backstage material, Sundance has you covered. “Filmmakers Loic Prigent and Fabien Constant are in New York getting ready to shoot new episodes for the second season of The Day Before, a Sundance Channel miniseries that follows fashion designers for the 36 hours leading up to their shows,” says The Cut.
Prigent and Constant have apparently had a full access pass to the preparations from Diane Von Furstenberg, Alexander Wang, Jeremy Scott and Narciso Rodriguez. And, they’ll be shooting a not-yet-named London designer as well as one in Paris. Unfortunately this footage won’t air until September (surely as a preview to next fashion week). But, in the meantime you can satisfy your sartorial television appetite with Sundance’s newly launched Catwalk Countdown, which “takes an inside and intimate look into 10 different designer studios,” including Erin Fetherston, Vena Cava and Chris Benz. That, or sit tight for Andre Leon Talley’s cape-fueled ANTM debut.
