Writing for the Huffington Post, Julee Wilson reports that music and fashion mogul Sean “Diddy” Combs has made history yet again by producing the first-ever Instagram Fashion Show. Surely this would have gained him a lot of instagram followers. Wilson reports that the fashion icon stated:

“In honor of New York Fashion Week we wanted to do something that has never been done before”, said Combs in a press release. “With Instagram technology, we are bringing Sean John to the social media runway where our consumer lives.” With it being as simple as sending instagram messages on computer or via the app on phones, it wouldn’t be surprising to find out that fans of Sean were there to give him encouragement and support for the first-ever Instagram fashion show. Hopefully, they’ll be more shows like these in the future.

Combs’ historic fashion show arrived just in time for New York City’s historic snow storm Nemo, which knocked out power to 650,000 homes in the Northeastern region of the United States, including New York. Did we mention that it’s also New York Fashion Week?

Say what you will about Diddy, but his ability to strategize and rise to the occasion despite precarious circumstances while making use of social media is pretty impressive.
