Tommy Hilfiger Showing at Park Avenue Armory for Spring 2015 NYFW
The Tommy Hilfiger Group announced that Tommy Hilfiger will show his Spring 2015 women's runway collection at the Park Avenue Armory during New York Fashion Week on Monday, September 8 at 11:00am, marking his first September show at the location.
After presenting his Great American Outdoors-inspired Fall 2014 collection in a dramatic, mountain imbued space at the expansive location, Tommy Hilfiger is bringing his September fashion show to the Park Avenue Armory for the first time. The designer previously also showed his Fall 2013 and Fall 2012 shows in the Armory's historic Drill Hall.
"I am excited to be returning to the Park Avenue Armory," said Tommy Hilfiger. "The Armory is an incredible space that allows for a dramatic and immersive guest experience, something that has become our signature during New York Fashion Week. Since founding my brand, I have been inspired by a wide range of influences outside fashion - music, art, architecture, and entertainment. This season I am pleased to welcome a fresh point of view to the show experience and show the world of fashion through a new lens by introducing the 'First-Timers' digital program."
Building on its philosophy of using social media and the digital space to democratize the fashion show experience, this season Tommy Hilfiger is introducing "First-Timers." The new digital program brings together a diverse group of digital influencers from different fields and areas of expertise outside the fashion industry to document the unique experience of viewing a fashion show for the first time. Bringing a fresh perspective and diverse points of view to their coverage, the "First-Timers" will each focus on a different element of the show experience that combines their area of expertise with the world of fashion. The influencers will explore and record their visual experience of the Tommy Hilfiger runway show, allowing followers to view the fashion industry from a revealing new perspective. The influencers' bespoke footage will be shared via their blogs and social channels, amplified over the brand's social channels, and aggregated through "The Conversation" - a live social media feed running on tommy.com and featured in real-time on LED screens backstage at the runway show. This recreation of the show through the perspectives of digital influencers who are new to the fashion space supports Tommy Hilfiger's commitment to opening up the runway show experience, making the event more democratic and giving a wider global audience unprecedented in-the-moment access.
