New York Fashion Week would have to be one of the quintessential events of the New York year, so what happens during it says a lot about New York life.
So the fact that it was inpossible to go anywhere or do anything without being snapped on a smart phone, texted or called from a smart phone or receiving an instagram is instructive.
How has anything at all happened in NYC before we all had smart phones? How did fashion week happen before the smart phone takeover?
What did everyone do before you could instantly instagram or send an image to an editor with pics from the runway?
What did everyone do before there was instant communication via text and you could therefore know at once about a snafu or missed delivery or whatever.
Now that some people have not 1 but 2 or even 3 smart phones and therefore instant connectivity via text, pictures, news happens everywhere all the time, when are you ever ‘out of touch New Yorkers and could your life or your business actually exist now without this support?
