Tech that’s Dressed to Impress

The combination of going through my wardrobe during a recent move and the refreshingly warm weather has left me daydreaming about open-toed heels and floral-patterned tops. Spring, are you here yet?

Plus, with Fashion Week in full-swing, I’m hearing a lot about hot new clothing trends. For example, on February 10, I was reading tweets from Christian Siriano about his show (and the poor model who took a tumble, pictured above). And he isn’t the only designer using social media; in fact, our digital ways of life and social media obsessions are fueling a change for many premium fashion brands.

This means better e-commerce sites, more attention on social media and iPhone, iPod touch or iPad apps, such as Style.com. This app, for example, is a quick and easy way to get the latest photos and videos from Fashion Week. The Cut, New York Magazine’s fashion blog, also launched a new iPad app to keep anyone up-to-date on Fashion Week happenings.

Are you feeling inspired by Fashion Week and want to create your own gorgeous outfits? Well, perhaps your creative dreams could be reality with the help of handy online design tools. Mashable recently shared ways to design your own clothes online, from sketching your own free-form designs to setting your own trends by choosing various pieces for an individualized outfit.

While I probably don’t have the creative genius to be the next big fashion icon, you will catch me checking up on runway videos from my iPod Touch. How do you keep up with the fashion industry? Share your strategies in the comments.

    I’m a big fan of Burberry’s use of social media — their “Art of the Trench” campaign and how they were letting people do iPad shopping from a fashion show in Europe. Love it!

    Oh, forgot all about Art of the Trench http://artofthetrench.com/ ! Agreed – they’re using social media in a very smart way.
