E! Entertainment Network and its sister cable net Style Network will broadcast the first national live fashion show from Bryant Park, the home of Fashion Week in New York.
The nets will air live runway and backstage coverage of Sean “Puffy” Combs’ debut of his fall Sean John collection on Saturday, during a special dubbed “Live From the Runway: Sean John.”
The programming is among several elements being added to the coverage mix preemed by the nets during Fashion Week in September.
September’s programming followed an agreement with fashion orgs 7th on Sixth and the Council of Fashion Designers of America to make Style the official network of New York Fashion Weeks and grant it unlimited access to the events.
The Fall 2001 Fashion Week runs in New York today through Feb. 17, and Style has tapped fashion expert Mercedes Woods and model Michelle Behennah to serve as on-air personalities for the week.
