Fashion 2.0 Awards
February 16
New York, USA

New Yorkers are taking digital fashion very seriously - case in point: another ceremony during fashion week that awards fashionable online projects. Is Burberry or Armani more web-savvy? Was Chanel's or Lanvin's video prettier? Which fashion PR deserves praise for their Twitter account? You decide.
