I visited the SHOWstudio Fashion Revolution exhibition last week at Somerset House, which I found really inspirational. It showed how much the fashion industry has changed and how quickly things happen. Designers and artists have quickly responded to the growing online community of fashion followers.
"When SHOWstudio.com launched in 2000, the fashion world was most definitely not online. Today, there is a generation of young people whose entire fashion experience comes from the internet, via live shows, on the spot collection reports, fashion film and e-commerce. These audiences number not thousands, but millions, all excitedly consuming fashion imagery, live and direct. In less than a decade, a revolution has taken place and I feel we have only just begun"
