11 Shows You Can Sneakily Watch At Your Desk During New York Fashion Week

No more what do I wear? pressure!

Technology is making New York Fashion Week incredibly democratic. Anyone with an internet connection or mobile phone can tune in and watch NYFW shows in real time—you don't have to be a blogger or fashion editor with a stack of invites.

This same internet/social media wave is transforming and rewiring NYFW, as New York-based designers focus their runways towards shoppers instead of the press or even decamp to LA or Paris for shows. After all, no matter where brands go, the world is watching online. With that in mind, here are 11 shows to live stream when NYFW kicks off this week.

Here's what we know: Gigi and Tommy Hilfiger are leaving NYC behind and heading to Venice Beach for TommyXGigi 2.0. Plus, it's instantly shoppable, so if you see something you like you can buy it ASAP. (The brand is going to roll out an app called Tommyland Snap: Shop so you can do just that.)

The Show: Who What Wear on February 8 at 7:30 p.m. EST via YouTube Live

What to Watch For: Fashion media brand Who What Wear is putting together a runway show based on its editors’ favorite brands and spring trends. The show will stream via YouTube Live and it’s all going to be immediately shoppable.

The Show: Chromat on February 10 at 4 p.m. EST via chromat.co

What to Watch For: Designer Becca McCharen is known for her the way she seamlessly integrates tech into her edgy swimwear, lingerie, and activewear pieces. And, she reliably casts some of the most diverse runways of NYFW.

The Show: VFiles on February 10 at 8 p.m. EST via vfiles.com, with pre-performances from noon to 4 p.m. EST

What to Watch For: This crowd-sourced fashion show from up-and-coming designers is always unpredictable, and this year, it’s coming at you live from the studio that once housed MTV’s classic show Total Request Live. Prior to the show, VFiles plans to live stream musical acts, the backstage process, and interviews with models and mentors. Makeup artist Pat McGrath, Tommy Hilfiger, and Rihanna's stylist Mel Ottenberg are all on the mentorship team.

The Show: Alexander Wang on February 11 at 8 p.m. EST

What to Watch For: Wang probably has one of NYFW's coolest front rows, and here's hoping he live streams both the runway show and his infamous, over-the-top afterparty. PS: this year's show location is shrouded in mystery.

The Show: Altuzarra on February 12 at 8 p.m. EST

What to Watch For: Because Joseph Altuzarra's bags and coats are always standouts - and you can get a sneak peek of the suit Evan Rachel Wood will wear on the red carpet next.

The Show: Proenza Schouler on February 13 at 1 p.m. EST on fashionweekonline.com

What to Watch For: The design duo is about to ditch NYC for Paris in order to align with the couture schedule and only host two runway shows a year, so tune in for Proenza Schouler's NYFW swan song. Maybe you'll spot the PS dress that's about to be on every magazine cover.

The Show: Coach on February 14 at 4 p.m. EST

What to Watch For: This classic company is reinventing itself to become "NYC coolest fashion brand" thanks to campaigns with It-Girls (Selena Gomez is next!) and fashion shows and events hosted in dramatic settings like the High Line. The brand is also going to show men's and women's looks together, starting for the very first time with next week'scollection.

Yeezy Season 4

What to Watch For: Kanye West's fashion shows always get people talking, whether it's due to a new music drop or major controversy over models fainting due to extreme heat.

Happy Birthday @BellaHadid 🍰💕 We love you!
