It's not just established fashion industry players—like Burberry, Miu Miu, and Bernhard Willhelm—hitching their wagons to livestream new media technology. Next week's Fashion Institute of Technology graduate show will livestream in stereo 3D—only the second fashion show in the world to do so, after Burberry's fall-winter collection in London.

FIT is one of a handful of fashion schools across the globe whose graduate shows are closely watched by the fashion industry—the school has an alumni list that boasts the who's who of American fashion, including Calvin Klein, Francisco Costa, Ralph Rucci, Stephen Burrows, John Bartlett, and Nanette Lepore.

The show will be simultaneously livecast to the general public online at FIT's website on Monday, April 26th, at 7:30 p.m.
