Burberry to stream show in 3D

In keeping with the explosion of interest in all things 3D, set off by James Cameron's phenomenal Avatar, fashion industry giant Burberry have announced that their upcoming London Fashion Week show will be streamed live in 3D to venues in New York, Paris, Dubai, Tokyo and Los Angeles. Whilst this is of little comfort to Antipodean Burberry fans it does initiate the concept of a global live show, multiple events around the globe seeing the show at the same time. Interesting to see that one of the world's oldest fashion houses (est. 1856) is the first to implement the technology - in partnership with Sky Television. The good news for local fans is that the same show which takes place at 4pm GMT, Feb 23 at the Chelsea College of Art will also be streamed in 2D at live.burberry.com.
