That shows will livestream their collections isn’t news. But that they’ll have commentary?
While KCD’s busy readying their first ever online only fashion show—an experience they promise will be just like a real life production, the rest of the fashion world is preparing their livestreams and one is taking a slightly different approach. Theory’s just announced their plan to offer commentary alongside the AW12 Theyskens collection. Derek Blasberg and Moda Operandi’s Lauren Santo Domingo will chat up the online crowd before the show starts at noon on Monday February 13th.
It sounds like they’ll speak during the show as well, which may or may not be a plus for audiences at home. No one’s particularly chatty during the ten or so minutes models are actually on the runway and it’s a welcome moment of silence (or good music) from the week’s noise. Blasberg and Santo Domingo are good friends, so their rapport will be fun to listen to, but do you want an announcement each time a model walks out? Or a new look bows?
