If you're a follower of mine, then you're probably aware that I am not really a fashion blogger, however, now that LFW has come to an end, I felt it was only fair to do a fashion themed post. Although I didn't attend LFW, I managed to stay updated with it all. I’ve loved the majority of the catwalks this year, as a lot of the trends seem to be quite wearable! Today I will be talking about technology and how it has affected fashion.
So, this point is slightly unrelated to London Fashion Week, but I'm sure you're all aware of Apple's new iWatch. I’m not sure whether this is a very fashionable item to wear, but one thing's for sure... I want one, and I'm sure a lot of you do, too!
Social Networking SitesSo, this is an obvious one… Most brands have social networking sites, and I love following them on platforms like Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. It's an amazing way to keep updated on the latest trends and great for outfit inspirations. Quick fact, Burberry has more than 17 million likes on Facebook- WHAT!?… are you serious!?
3D ModellingThe other day, I read that some designers were using 3D modelling to 'try outfits on'. This was the first time I had heard of this concept! I'm not sure how I exactly feel about this, but it's an unusual idea, that I assume is beneficial for some of these top brands.
Visual Search SoftwareNow this one’s super cool. It's crazy the amount of times I’ve seen an outfit that I like, (in real life or on networking sites like Instgram or Pinterest), but don't know where to purchase it from. I'm always reluctant to ask people where an item of clothing that they're wearing is from, in case I seem like a bit of a freak. Now, there's actually a software by Cortexica, where you snap a picture of an outfit or item of clothing you like, and they find an exact or similar item, that you can buy! It's like your very own personal shopper, haha! As you can imagine, I was so excited to try this out, to see if it actually worked... It did! I just think it's so clever. You can go on their website, and have a browse around, and you can also download an app called Style Thief, available for free on the App Store. They are also pairing up with fashion brands in the future (it’s a top secret)- so exciting!
