I am very excited to be invited to the live 3D screening here in New York of Burberry Prorsum Womenswear show from London Fashion Week. It's happening today at 11am. I hear James Cameron is attending the actual London show. The show will also be streaming live online (in normal 2D, of course) if you'd like to watch. I can't wait! Here's a video of the Chief Creative Officer talking about the event.
I'm back from the show and it went off without a hitch. The screening took place at the Skylight SoHo which was spacious, everything was white except for the attractive staff working the event who were wearing all black. The packaged 3D glasses were handed out upon arrival along with mimosas and hors d'oeurves. Everything was very organized and in it's place. The screening started on schedule. The glasses took a few minutes to get used to and we found the 3D effect most apparent when looking at footage of the crowd before and after the runway show. It wasn't so apparent when looking at the models themselves.
The clothing was incredible. My jaws were on the floor. It was my ultimate color palettes: khakis, neutrals and blacks with splashes of jewel tones. The outerwear (which is available for pre-order already) was the best part. Gorgeous funnel neck shearlings with lots of beautiful leather detailing and buckles... all very classic aviator. The boots were either lined with shearling with buckles along the outside or sky high thigh highs. All very sexy and all very beautiful.
What a treat it was to see this show!
