Mugler, under the creative direction of Nicola Formichetti, has released a full timetable documenting its digital activity around next week’s Paris Fashion Week show.
Formulated by digital agency, Moving Image & Content, the #MuglerLive program includes live Formichetti interviews with bloggers from China and Brazil, backstage access to castings and fittings, and even a preview of the new collection. It begins the day before the show.
Viewers will also be able to ‘command’ Formichetti’s assistant, Prince, in the atelier throughout by using the hashtag #askprince. He will become the eyes and hands for viewers, answering special requests as well as questions on what’s happening behind the scenes.
The experience will be live broadcast on Mugler’s Ustream channel, with the show itself taking place on Wednesday, February 29 at 9pm CET. Here is the full schedule of activities, beginning the day before…. (timings are subject to change – check @muglerlive for real time updates)
