If you can’t get front row seats at this year’s New York Fashion week, Twitter can help you do just that. The social network can be your all-access guide to today’s event, as it curated a fashion guide that is complete with the “it” designers, bloggers, models, and fashion icons.

Their tweets will keep you informed on what’s happening at the show, as well as what trends are coming back in style. The fashion guide includes a list of fashion writers, designers, models, makeup artists, and hair stylists whom you can follow. As posted on Twitter’s official blog:

Get closer to the action throughout the New York Fashion Week by joining the Twitter conversation. Use the #NYFW hashtag to discover the week’s most memorable, fun, unexpected moments in real time.

To complement your Fashion Week experience, we’re also unveiling a special ‘Get started on Twitter’ page about fashion for you. Follow the accounts we suggest on this page for your go-stream of the latest fashion and design news even after Fashion Week is over.

Twitter also created the hashtag #DayInTheLife, so that users can have one place to find news, pictures, and behind-the-scenes of the show. Those who follow the hashtag will be able to see photos sitting in for makeup sessions, celebrities at after-parties, and designers in their last minute meetings and fittings.

Fashion Week 2012 on the Web

Last week, Mashable posted various tips on how you can follow the New York Fashion Week online. Aside from Twitter, the Fashion Week 2012 opened its door more widely to the public, as a number of designers are live streaming their Spring 2013 collections on YouTube, Livestream, and their respective Facebook pages. In addition, fans can preview the schedule and add shows to the Google Calendar or iCal.
