The Strange State of Social Media Etiquette at Fashion Week – Man Repeller

Leandra Medine | SEPTEMBER 8, 2016

BECAUSE IT SEEMS MORE AND MORE THAT PEOPLE ARE OPTING OUT OF TAKING IPHONE PHOTOS

Sometimes, when I’m walking down the street, I will notice something and think to myself that it would make a good photo. When this happens, I almost always take out my phone to take said photo and very rarely feel embarrassed about it. Why would I? I have identified a scene that I believe is worth capturing, and in this day and age, we’re all photographers and storytellers, aren’t we?

Of course we are.

I bring this up because this rule no longer applies to fashion week. On the contrary, having your phone out at a show has become somewhat, dare I say, embarrassing. Which is ridiculous if you think about it, because many of the attendees are at these shows for the sole purpose of gathering photos for later use. So why has this happened, and should we do anything about it?

When this happens, I almost always take out my phone to take said photo and very rarely feel embarrassed about it. I have identified a scene that I believe is worth capturing, and in this day and age, were all photographers and storytellers, arent we? I bring this up because this rule no longer applies to fashion week.
