Who doesn’t love a fashion show? Whether we’re watching the catwalk divas from our favourite glossies (with all of their surefooted grace!) or whether it’s an impromptu fashion show at the local shopping centre, we’ll all take a sneak peek. Wherever a fashion show sets up shop, you can be sure that expectant and appreciative crowds will follow. It’s a glamour thing I guess.
The whole point of a fashion show is to showcase something new. Whether it’s a brand new collection, a new spin on an old favourite or an exciting birth of a whole new style, let’s face it, fashion shows bring with them an air of expectancy and excitement. The more famous the designer, the more excitement you can expect.
In all likelihood most of us are never going to attend a live fashion show unless we really put our minds to it, but with the arrival of the Internet and its rapidly advancing technology, every single one of us can watch a fashion show, 24/7.
There was once a time that streaming video over the Internet would not only bring your own computer to its knees, but you would probably tie up your whole neighbourhood’s Internet connection as well.
Not anymore! Streaming video on the Internet is now the norm rather than the exception.
Today, there are some switched on catalogue sites that actually host their own very professional fashion shows and make them available on their own sites. Despite being catalogue retailers, their fashion shows are very professional and informative, giving us an insight as to their commitment to the world of fashion and to the Internet.
The beauty of these fashion shows is the fact that the clothes and accessories are all very attainable and available for purchase and delivery to your own door with the click of a mouse, and the best part is that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own armchair. And unlike the ultra chic catwalk fashion shows, you don’t need ultra deep pockets to pay for them.
What does this mean for you and me? In short you don’t need to be in the right place at the right time or have high powered society connections to watch some great fashion shows. You just need a regular broadband connection and a comfy chair. Sit down, switch on and enjoy.
