Fashion Tweets Ruffles Feathers
New York fashion week officially kicks off this Friday and Twittering fashionistas have already started sending out updates with #NYFW tags.
Among the fashionable set, scoring a runway invitation imparts cachet because shows are invite-only and often, the invitations are nontransferable.
On Monday, the New York Times’s blog The Moment told its 9,753 Twitter followers that it was offering up tickets to “Project Runway” winner Christian Siriano’s Feb. 19 show.
The designer’s boyfriend, Brad Walsh, took to his blog to complain: “The last thing this show needs is an army of random Twitterers thinking they have a chance getting in, or some sixteen year old having access to the RSVP info. Some of Christian’s young fans already found my phone number on the internet and call more often than is probably healthy, just on the chance that maybe they will get to hear him in the background.”
