In a clever marketing marriage, the NYC-based PR firm BPMW (Brand Pimps and Media Whores) loaded Zunes with content from their clients' Fall/Winter '07 lines.

Playlists made by each designer make the virtual fashion show complete and lend real lifestyle branding from the actual source of the productâ€”rather than the artificial feel that comes from focus groups and consultants. Overall, it's a step in harnassing some of the unique functions that Zune brings to the portable device.
