along with a new home, ny fashion week will be getting a technology upgrade. pre-show check-in is traditionally hectic, with assistants tending to the masses with clipboards, checking people in and providing seat assignments one-by-one. this fall, the system will be computerized, and many fashion houses will be utilizing e-mail invitations and confirmations with bar codes that can be scanned at the show. the hope is that the technology will speed up the process and provide order to the usual mayhem. by automating the check-in, designers will be able to easily make seating changes and ascertain which seats are empty. guests will also avoid long lines and will be able to scan their bar-coded inviations at kiosks.
