Highlights of the New York Fashion Week 2017
Exclusive catwalk at 10,000 metres
En route to Fashion Week New York enjoy exclusive fashion shows on board a Boeing 747-8. The popular New York fashion designer Rubin Singer is offering you a preview of his women’s collection before the actual Fashion Show in the Big Apple. The catwalk is high above the Atlantic Ocean.
And our air hostesses’ uniforms are also influenced by fashion trends. In a further fashion show our Lufthansa crew will model the look of the past 60 years. And in tune with this retrospective, the jumbo jet has had a 70s-style facelift. Every passenger on flight LH 400 from Frankfurt/Main to New York on 8 February 2017 is invited to take part in this unique event – irrespective of booking class.

Fashion goes Gadget
Wearables are fully on trend. Small sensors in accessories that you wear on your body record movement data, heart frequency and UV radiation or stream music wirelessly.
Bellabeat created Leaf Nature and Leaf Urban having in mind the importance of women's health. They are both health trackers in form of smart jewelry and they are connected to the matching app where users can track their activity, sleep, reproductive health, meditation and stress. Both Leaf Nature and Leaf Urban come in Silver and Rose Gold and can be worn as a bracelet, a necklace or a clip.
The LEDs in the bracelet react to movement, music and friends in the vicinity who are also wearing a Gemio. The colour designs of the LEDs as well as a vibrating alarm signal events to the wearer, without the need for him or her to view a screen. The light patterns can be varied through the use of interchangeable elements (tiles).
The Helix Cuff™ is the world's first trendy wearable wrist cuff with an extractable smart wireless Bluetooth® headphones.

During the flight there will also be a number of fascinating presentations on the topic of fashion. In order to ensure that you can see and hear everything from your seat, Lufthansa has installed an inflight conference system on board the Boeing 747-8. With your WLAN enabled device (laptop, smartphone, tablet) you will receive the presentations via live streaming, as well as the moderation for the fashion shows.
