Entertainment Trends For Fashion Events
In Paris’ 2018 February fashion show Alexander McQueen provided front row attendees with personalised jumpers with their names embroidered into the label whilst Marc Jacobs opened a pop-up shop for his fragrance, Daisy, in New York City on the first day of Fashion Week. Formally called the Daisy Marc Jacobs Tweet Shop, the store accepted social currency whereby visitors received a branded gift from the store simply by using the hashtag #MJDaisyChain. A clever marketing strategy that exchanged branded Marc Jacob items for social media posts, increasing brand awareness and rewarding loyal customers for their endorsements.
On the catwalk Giambattista Valli doused models’ faces in glitter (quite literally) taking the glitter festival trend to extravagant new levels and brightening the catwalk all at the same time. Meanwhile, in Milan, fashion house Dolce & Gabbana traded their models for drones. Showcasing their latest Fall Winter 2018/19 jewel encrusted handbag collection in a far more futuristic means than any fashion enthusiast would have ever of expected.
