One of our favorite things about September is Fashion Week and it just kicked off two days ago. For those of us who are not in New York and have been poring over the September Issue for the past month, well, we have technology. Here is where you can hangout online to be part of the action and stay on top of this season’s latest. We’re blessed (and also cursed at times) to be in an age where live video streaming, real-time updates and instantly uploaded photos are a regular part of life. This luxury especially becomes useful when you’re trying to be at an event digitally. Here’s where to hangout online to get the most out of Fashion Week.

Instagram: Now if you’re more of a visual person, and let’s face it, you can’t really follow fashion without seeing the new styles. Thanks to photo sharing sites like Instagram, you can follow your favorite fashion icons’ photo streams. There are also some users that aggregate all fashion photos in one spot, like @mislav.
Tumblr: Once again, Tumblr partnered up with 16 fashion bloggers to Fashion Week and document the exciting happenings there. A couple of our favorite bloggers chosen this year are Annamarie, Justin Chung and Paper Tissue.
Here’s the full list of all 16 bloggers.
YouTube: Now to really get a feel for the action, catch live streaming on YouTube. This year, Youtube has a Live From the Runway channel which streams coverage of all the Runway Shows. Awesome, right? We’re currently re-watching the Tadashi Shoji’s Show.
Blogs: Lastly, if you want to pore over articles covering Fashion Week the same way you’ve exhausted your Vogue September Issue, then head for the fashion sites and blogs. Our personal favorite is On The Runway from the New York Times style blog, but there are a good number of reads out there including Style.com and Fashionetc.
