While lots of fashion insiders will no doubt be in attendance, Models WebTV have photographers and filmmakers on-site at the event as well, so that their channel can distribute high quality online coverage at the end of each day all throughout the week.
Models WebTV’s main video channel will feature high quality video footage straight from the runway and behind the scenes coverage, while its Facebook page will feature up-close photos of the 2014 collections. On Twitter, @ModelsWebTV will offer streaming updates under the hashtag #MBFW. Models WebTV (a portfolio company of Film Annex Capital Partners) is a fashion-focused video channel where filmmakers, designers, photographers, and models can distribute their content. If the Fall show is like the Spring 2013 show....
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week will leverage Models WebTV’s partnership with Film Annex, which is already one of the world’s largest online film distribution platforms. While local news stations and mainstream news sites are expected to provide basic coverage of the event, Models WebTV will produce original content for the fashion fanatic, including exclusive total access footage and interviews with designers about the business of design. And with the platform's built-in distribution system, Models WebTV's coverage is poised to be among the most widely seen by fashion lovers across the globe.
Also among the designers to be showcased on Models WebTV is Vera Wang, the New York City-based fashion icon known for her feminine detailing and contemporary approach to the bridal aesthetic.
