My favourite fashion apps for iPad

20/04/2012

I promise, this is the last iPad-related post for a while, but I just had, I really had to share some of my favourite finds with you. When I first got my iPad, I downloaded dozens of fashion and style related applications. These are the ones I tried, tested and chose to keep because they are either very useful and interesting or simply because they are very beautiful.

STYLE.COM A must-have for anyone interested in fashion. You get an access to 10 years worth of ready-to-wear and haute couture shows, beautiful runaway images, videos and party coverage. {free}
THE CUT The latest news, catwalk reports and looks to inspire. {free}

THE COLLECTION Created by the New York Times, it merges the news, trends, street reports and catwalk shows - all beautifully presented on your screen in a click-on-picture-to-find-out-more format. {free}

THE DAILY W Your daily dose of W magazine featuring exclusive fashion content, latest news, celebrity interviews, accessories reports, beauty and travel advise and occasional giveaways from the top designers. Includes a very useful Favourites folder that allows you to keep everything you’d like to remember in one place. {free)

LOVE MAGAZINE Allows you to download the latest issue. Includes videos, editorial photo coverage and interviews. I really love the simple and clean presentation. {free}

INTERVIEW View the original magazine content that comes alive on your screen. Absolutely brilliant! {free}

SELF SERVICE Another wonderful addition for the fashion library as it allows you to read the magazine on your iPad without having to run around looking for a print copy, which may not always be easy to find. editorials come alive when you least expect it. {free}

THE EVER CHANGING FACE OF BEAUTY Presented by W magazine and created by Sølve Sundsbø this interactive video features Lara Stone and David Agbodji. Enchanting and magical, very much like a dream. If you don’t feel like starting at your screen, you can simply enjoy the music by James Lavelle and Charlie May. Or have a little play by sliding parts of an on-screen image to create something quite unique. {free}

DIOR DAIRY An electronic diary with a very chic layout that includes images from Dior’s Be Iconic campaign. {free}

VALENTINO Everything you want to know about the brand: latest collections, look books, fashion show videos, ad campaign and video news. {free}

TOD’S: AN ITALIAN DREAM A short movie celebrating the quality and traditions of “Made in Italy” craftsmanship. Dancing on Teatro alla Scala’s famous stage and throughout the theatre’s balconies and corridors, thirteen ballet dancers from Teatro alla Scala directed by Matthias Zentner and choreographed by Gianluca Schiavoni, interpret the passion and creative talent of the Tod’s artisans. Includes behind the scenes and craftsmanship videos. {free}

MY LITTLE PARIS Not so much about fashion, but it’s just such a beautiful app that I have to add it to the list. Includes charming illustration by Japanese illustrator Kanako Kuno, e-cards, 360 degree views of the city from the roof tops, secret addresses and interactive features. {free}

Natalia Vodianova in Outlaw couture | Vogue Italia March 2008 (photography: Bruce Weber, styling: Anne Christensen)
Today I am overindulging in a beautiful imagery, silk and taffeta, folds and pleats so plentiful and haute, it can only be couture, the simple gorgeousness of nature that makes you smile, and, of course, Natalia Vodianova photographed by Bruce Weber back in 2008 for this “Outlaw couture” story.
