Tommy Hilfiger has been in the fashion industry a long time, but that doesn't mean he isn't on the cutting edge. It doesn't mean he isn't cool or "with it." Just check this out, kids: Hilfiger is inviting you to an "InstaMeet," aka an Instagram party, for his Fashion Week show. Fashion Times reports that Hilfiger will host 20 select New York City-based Instagrammers for the event. They will view, and copiously photograph, his fall 2014 collection.
Said the CMO of Tommy Hilfiger group of the move, "We strive to develop digital programs that challenge and evolve the way we engage the industry and consumers around our runway show." They've already selected two hashtags for the event: #tommyfall14 and #nyfwinstameet.
