Zulema Griffin's designer runway has gone virtual. She opted to show her Fall 2008 Collection on YouTube and MySpace rather than hosting a traditional runway show using a physical catwalk.

The music and the video are not the best, but the concept is quite unique. The stark black-and-white colors combined with faceless models provide the same drama a physical runway show would--and this virtual method is far more cost-effective.

Implications - Zulema Griffin is a former contestant on the reality television show Project Runway, who says that doing a fashion show on the Internet is a great way to generate buzz. Her featured collection shows some gorgeous warm weather dresses that are paired with floppy sun hats.
