Fashion month is almost here, kicking off in New York this week. It’s a season of clothes! Shoes! Street style! People watching (read: spying) etc. But, wait – your ticket to the shows got lost in the post? Don’t worry. With digital media transforming the way we access shows today, you can now get just as great a view through each brand’s live stream (most of which are shoppable now, hello Tommy Hilfiger) and of course, the number one digital social tool, Instagram. So, if you are looking for the key fashion players to watch this season (other than us @wgsn), then check out this curated list from our catwalk editor Anna Ross.
