If you weren’t convinced that Google had earned fashion’s seal of approval when Nina Garcia elected to wear Google Glass during New York Fashion Week, this news should cement things for you.
The Council of Fashion Designers of America teamed up with Google on Google+ Hangouts on Air app that will allow users to engage in a “hang out” with CFDA president Diane von Furstenberg while shopping the designer’s wares. Can you imagine? Considering the infamous wrap dress designer shared the preparations leading up to her Spring 2013 show: before, during and after using Google Glass, she proved that always ahead of the curve.
So this may be the way of the future. DVF is the first designer to hang out with shoppers but Marcus Wainwright, David Neville of Rag & Bone, Rebecca Minkoff, and Rachel Zoe will follow the initial hang out with von Furstenberg on Thursday, October 3rd at 8pm.
Prepare your wallets accordingly, folks.
