I quoted Tim Jackson for the title of this post. His subject was "Virtual Flagships - evolution in luxury brand communication?" mentioning amazing works of Giorgio Armani and Karl Lagerfeld for the internet. These two designers have really understand the power of internet and using it very creative. But also he showed his admiration for fashion designer duo Viktor & Rolf and Tom Ford. An interesting speech about luxury brand communication using websites and social media. Also he mentioned that some designs are pieces of art..
