Want to create excitement around your brand? Learn how live-streaming video can keep your brand's fans interested and engaged

 

There's a natural drop-off in viewers during any event, even with the excitement and staying power of live streams... true but that may have to do more with teh design of the video! content! Simply watch  someone walk up then down a runway is ... well "BORING" There is no Clicjk through no information ... no connection! We're hoping to address that at www.brooklynfashionfilmfestival.com

Diane Pernet On A Shaded View Of Fashion Film Festival

Diane Pernet On A Shaded View Of Fashion Film Festival | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

"Drenched in black with her ever-present lace mantilla and catseye sunglasses, Diane Pernet is one of the most recognisable figures on the fashion landscape.

 

Well Ms Pernet may be pleased to know that an independent designers from around the world are actually looking at the Fashion Film to replace the Catwalk! We’re connected via Social Media speak and discuss industry via video even sell across international waters using video! This is a Natural progression!

In November we stage www.BrooklynfashionFilmfestival.com as our www.Brooklynfashionweek.com format, as Small and medium sized indie designers we have the flexibility!

We are still finalizing details for the November event and it should be noted we started working on this in 2005/6 the minute we realized we could stream video on our Mambo install and go live with "Mogulus" (now Livestream)

Our challenge as we see it though is presenting more than a "moving runway show," and in fact "telling Story" while at the same time .. "selling our product", which ultimately is what the Catwalk is meant to achieve!

As a catwalk substitute (as since this is the first year ) we have also had to be a bit more "open"! Basically this Fashion Film festival is a new platform, we've chosen also to Look towards movements in "Social Tv" , "Social Retail" and tele-presence! We're working with several NYTech startups, allowing these new technologies to extend the storytelling & conversation & re-define how we show and sell!

ASVOFF was one of 3-4 Fashion Film festivals we came across when researching our concept!

I Wholeheartedly agree that "Too many incomes are dependent on the existence of catwalk presentations", However for the independent designer it's a matter of survival that cost has become prohibitive with very little to show in return!

Many have also Lost control of their stories, their “voice’ in the recent spate of catwalk shows poppin up! We encourage others to look towards the format!

It’s Simple too many are afraid to err so they exude many of the "anachronistic" state Ms Pernet alluded to! We opted to " take the bull by the horns and make some brave decisions"...

We've Introduced them to many mentioned above (http://Bkstyle.brooklynfashionweek.com) . Held workshops on technology, storytelling and video! For the November event we've asked designers and industry professionals to introduce themselves! and their collection/work opting to have them explore the medium!This year we’ve given designers free reign to create their moving storyboards, and while I have no idea what to expect we understand that artist grow and that the very act of beginning paves way so that eventually they’re " done well, ...a timeless and classic style of presentation"!

Btw I am emailing this to the designers this interview from another voice

Www.Brooklynfashionfilmfestival.com needs the #Gigabit maybe we'll enter @GBChallengeKC | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

I  don't need 10 image apps I need one image app that  serves my needs, Same with video! However as we tested  video  apps last week at a wifi cafe in Brooklyn The  tought came to mind,  I need a fasteer netwrok! So yes Kansas looks real  good now! 

 

I've been saying we have a  wealth of tech tools  and it's time for Innovation and disruption  in the WAY  we use them to  make business more efficeint!

 

Is www.brooklynfashionfimlfestival.com disruptive... from the reaction of some of the designers yes... from others it's simply makes sense ... finally!

 

I am asking them  to  rethink the way they  do  thinks and  how it affects their  bottom line ... I don't see it as disruptive,  that's just  smart! designing based on need, intimate knowledge of the sector and trial and error... but can we  find the time  to submmit... if i can figure out teh  parameters!

 

The product developer in me wants to sit those running the  competition down  for a  session on  communicating their ideas... LOL  if I can fight that  urge then maybe!

The four R’s: Reading, (w)riting, ‘rithmetic, and (p)’rogramming - The Rising Importance of Technical Literacy

"If reading and writing were once reserved for the elite but then eventually became common knowledge, who’s to say the same won’t be true of proficiency in the ability to communicate using new technical languages?

 

At the very least, learning even just a little about these new technologies could go a long way. I would love one day to read a story of someone who was unemployed for 2+ years, decided to teach themselves how to code, and landed an amazing job not long thereafter. I’m sure the stories are already out there, but I believe there are many more yet to be told.

If there were any sleep-plaguing doubts that designers matter, the recent crash of Target’s website as it debuted its collaboration with Missoni should help you rest easy....A brand is a product, service, concept, or even a person, that is publicly distinguished from other products, services, concepts, or people by meaning.

Tune in to watch as Nicola Formichetti and Romain Kremer of Parisian powerhouse Mugler take over our Bruton Place studio to create a futuristic interpretation of the classic tuxedo, riffing on the Smoke and Mirrors theme of the SHOWstudio Shop exhibition Practice to Deceive: Smoke and Mirrors in Fashion, Fine Art and Film. Laser light beams, fluttering wind-effect polythene and a suit mashed together from glitter, armour plates, latex and slime - the making of Mugler's Le Smoking is a truly extraordinary experience, like none we've ever seen before. Don't miss this unique fashion performance from a collective at the forefront of contemporary fashion's current drive into futuristic fetishism.. http://goo.gl/HqSkr

How Bloggers' Influence Can Benefit Fashion Brands | Case Studies | Apparel Magazine | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
In an increasingly competitive digital landscape, apparel and accessory brands are looking for ways to make their mark and influence potential consumers.

 

I do not serve a Brand focusedmarket.. evn in Fashion.  consumers who shop teh designers ai work with meet the product, It's uniqueness creativity, story, it's quality and then the designer! Which presents a challenge!

 

When a brand has it's house in order this is a natural step... the gilding as such on the lily... but to depend on Blogger... when your line, Brand directives, production and distribution has problem... is a BAD idea! Unfortunately that what stories like this (unintentionally ) promote! Designers are quicker to hire PR agents that production , design or Branding talent !

I make no bones about my campaign to Democratize the world fashion stage and supports efforts that will expose TALENT from around the world to opportunities! Hence www.brooklynfashionfilmfestival.com This NYCED NY offer will allows young graduates such as students from The Caribbean Academy of Fashion & Design at UTT in my native Trinidad unprecedented access to opportunities in NY fashion industry! However when smaller governments invest in the education (university education is free n TT) efforts like this often result in a brain drain! So yes I am a tad bit concerned about what this will mean for local industries and the investment of their governments! On the other hand, that experience & exposure can directly benefit smaller fashion sectors… So how are these companies going to give back to the larger world stage of fashion development!
