Posted by: Carlee Vellinga

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is in full swing. While you may not be there, new websites and social networking opportunities allow you to be a part of the New York Fashion event.

HOW TO: Follow New York Fashion Week Online

New York Fashion Week kicked off Thursday, September 9, with more than 90 of the world’s best known and up-and-coming designers ready to display their Spring 2011 Collections.

It’s an exciting time for industry heavyweights and fashion lovers alike, as there have been some big changes to this year’s event.

The company provides a hi-tech approach to managing registration, credentials, and seating systems and also offers real-time online invitations and RSVPs.
