A sign of changing times in fashion, designers are finding innovative ways to present their collections in an industry dominated by the social media diktat.

While Tom Ford and Thomas Tait have decided to present their latest designs behind closed doors, the singularity of Jonathan Anderson, a British designer at the forefront of today's return to androgyny in menswear, is his decision to live-stream his next collection on Grindr, the hookup app gays love to hate.

As London Collections: Men is about to kick off (on January 8), Anderson announced that his fall-winter 2016 will be shared exclusively via the app. The designer explained to the New York Times why this decision was "a no-brainer":

"I think fashion is a sexy platform as well, ultimately," Anderson said. "We're all humans, so we all have to be somewhat sexually attractive to someone. That's the name of the game, with clothing."

Anderson's show will be revealed on Sunday January 10, at 10AM (GMT) -- that's 5AM EST; perfect timing for those who need diversion from all those headless torsos after hitting the club.
