NEW YORK, Apr 9, 2010 / FW/ — Leveraging the power of the web and utilizing 3-D technology, the Fashion Institute of Technology will stream live its “Future of Fashion” runway show on the web allowing those who cannot attend in person to share in the excitement.
For those who will view the show at the comfort of their homes, expect to see Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, and Kate Betts sitting front row together with other fashion notables in an expected full capacity crowd at the John E. Reeves Great Hall on the FIT.
Also for the first time, The Future of Fashion – in true futuristic style – will be projected in 3D in FIT’s Haft Auditorium.
Slated on Monday, April 26 at 7:30 pm, viewers will see The Future of Fashion revealed at www.fitnyc.edu/futureoffashion in a professionally produced runway show with an array of fashion-forward garments, including sportswear, special occasion, knitwear, intimate apparel, menswear, and children’s wear designed for fall 2010.
The young designers selected for the fashion show also will vie for cash awards from Cotton Incorporated, the lead sponsor of the fashion show. Students who use cotton in 95 percent of their outfits will be eligible to win $2,000 in each of five categories: sportswear, knitwear, intimate apparel, special occasion, and children’s wear.
The Future of Fashion will take place in the John E. Reeves Great Hall on the FIT campus at 4:30 pm and again at 7:30 pm. A VIP reception is slated for 6 pm.
