Fashion Week in Images: Tumblr Leads the Way

By distilling Fashion Week into its purest form -- the photo -- Tumblr succeeds in creating a starkly meaningful landscape in which one can really enjoy the aesthetics of the week. No retweets, no "@"s, just streams and streams of images. As a service, Tumblr is embracing its role as the world's best inspiration board, a repository for the bloggers and reporters who capture the lovely digital...

Jennifer Steinkamp, Digital Artist, Talks Animation and Abstraction

"Computers always want to be annoying," says Los Angeles-base artist Jennifer Steinkamp, as we discuss the installation of her current solo show in New York. She has ample reason to to worry about technology, given that her chosen medium -- 3-D animation -- is entirely computer based. Still, she takes the glitches in stride, as natural consequences of reliance on the digital. "It's just...

Austin's Recycled and Colorful Cocktail Dress Made From Computer Wire

Last week was Austin Fashion Week, and the event's 'Keep Austin Beautiful' show featured upcycled and recycled designs from Texan artists. Designer Tina Sparkles (who might be a Baz Luhrmann fan) created a one-shouldered frock, called 'System Supernova,' out of discarded computer wire. Sure, it might not be too movement-friendly, but the multicolored twists and inherent volume of the material made...

NY Fashion Week: How Alexander Wang Streams Live From the Runway

Share Fashion, an industry known for its insider-filled snobbery, resistance to change and frankly undemocratic practices, has finally joined the 21st century. Last year, when the average person thought Twitter was the sound of a small bird, the only people to get a glimpse of New York's fashion shows were the freezing (or roasting, depending on the season) editors camped outside of them. The...

Fashion Week on Twitter Gives You Front-Row Coverage, in Real Time

Skip the lines, the hassle, the irritated guest list protectors, the paparazzi, the underfed and the overdressed. Fashion Week in New York is a rollicking good time, as long as you aren't actually there. Thanks to Twitter, though, blooming fashionistas don't actually have to show up. Media outlets ranging from Racked.com to the New York Times have finally started to use the micro-blogging site...

Hands-On: Palm Pixi at New York Fashion Week

For one week every six months, even the most backwards, style-un-savvy New Yorker turns into a bit of a fashion nut. New York Fashion Week takes over the fair city, sending flocks of twig-legged girls dashing down Broadway, trying to get into (or out of) shows. Resident fashion nerd Leila Brillson takes the whole thing seriously while the rest of the staff admires her unflagging commitment to...

Twitter's Models Bring 140-Character Style Tweets to Fashion Week

September in New York. The leaves begin to turn, shorts are traded for pants, and the entire city stops for one week -- Fashion Week, that is. The yearly chic charade keeps bloggers in business, but it's not only writers who take to the Net. Models -- usually only known for their vapidness and abilities to sit, lounge, walk and look pretty -- are just as avid tweeters and updaters as are...
