On this day in fashion history

In 2009, Marc Jacobs compared the modern representation of fashion to a “spectator sport”, following a season in which designers showed collections live on the internet, Tweeted secrets pre-show and released backstage films of their collections being made – but denies the practices make fashion more accessible.

Any behind-the-scenes look is always telling of the fact that these are all real people doing real jobs and who work really hard. Again, I don’t know that that makes the end result more accessible. It just makes the ideas more accessible.”
