The Future of Fashion May Mean Designing Your Own Duds

By employing Delaunay Triangulation, or the practice of creating wide-angled triangles along a set of given points, designer Mary Huang hopes to democratize the little black dress. With her project 'Continuum,' which is about to hit Kickstarter, she hopes to take her proprietary software, and offer it to any gal who wants a hyper-futuristic dress entirely tailored to her own proportions.

Uniqlo Launches a Facebook-Based Street Style Site

When Uniqlo opened in New York, suddenly everyone had a place to shop for affordable, well-made jeans and tops. But, as with with anything in this city that is stylish and affordable, those pieces quickly became ubiquitous, leaving fashionistas to pair the store's basics with their own accoutrements. To celebrate this exploration of style, Uniqlo -- a company that has long been a proponent of new...

Designer Derek Lam Crowd-Sources Summer Collection on eBay

Derek Lam's Fashion Week shows are always attended by the style elite. This season, Anna Wintour sat front row, near Joe Zee and Derek Blasberg, and, last season, Leighton Meester and Rachel Zoe watched the presentation. Throughout the years, Lam has become a hallowed part of New York fashion, like Donna Karan or Ralph Lauren. But for a part of his Spring '11 collection, Lam has decided to opt...

See New York Fashion Week Shows Stream Live, Thanks To YouTube

In a partnership that makes so much sense it is almost shocking that it didn't happen earlier, YouTube is going to Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. The video site is streaming shows direct from Lincoln Center, letting the rest of the world witness what select New York Elite fight, starve and release hound-like interns to see. Partnering with Maybelline, and with backstage editorial help from YouTube...

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...

Kenneth Cole Redefines Classy With Cairo Tweet

Share This week, the Social Media Outreach Award goes to Kenneth Cole, the brand that offers sensible shoes and faux-leather bags to the upscale T.J. Maxx shopper. Earlier today, the company managed to mix its ever-so-witty wordplay ("If gas prices continue to rise, why not switch to pumps? -Kenneth Cole") with current political events across the Atlantic. When the KC PR team heard about the...

Japanese Go Crazy for Light-Up Smiles

Wearing gold fronts and jewels in your teeth is so Aughts. The 2010s call for a thoroughly more modern oral adornment. Enter Japanese fashion designers Mr. Ishibashi and Daito Manabe, who have created LED inserts that are worn behind the teeth. The light-up smiles are now being used as part of a marketing push by Laforet Harajuku, a popular department store in Tokyo, and are becoming a much...

Flashy Adidas Touchscreen Helps You Buy Shoes, Won't Hold Your Feet

Adidas and Intel recently unveiled a massive touchscreen wall that allows shoe retailers to house a large inventory without taking up so much floorspace.

When a shopper approaches it, the wall determines whether the person is male or female,...

Esquire Lists Mark Zuckerberg Among 2010's Worst-Dressed Celebrities

It's pretty clear that Mark Zuckerberg has about zero interest in wearing anything outside of his trademark, t-shirt/jeans/hoodie ensemble. But Esquire, for one, thinks the Facebook CEO should seriously consider investing in some new threads. The magazine recently listed Zuck among the worst-dressed celebrities of 2010, ranking him alongside Robert Pattinson and John Mayer in its '2010...

Worst of Gilt Takes Flash-Sale Site to Task

You know how frustrated you get when someone successfully documents a thing that you and your friends do all the time, but never thought of successfully documenting yourself? Welcome the Worst of Gilt, a site that shows how insane rich people can get when they think they are getting a deal. Granted, our Editor-in-Chief would go barefoot without Gilt, but we've linked each other to heinous dog...

Charlie Bucket's 'Fluid Dress' Is a Morphing Series of Tubes

Share Charlie Bucket is a bit of a star in the hacked crafts crowd, having debuted his Fluid Dress at the Maker Faire festival in California last year. Yet, showing the dress in its most-perfected form, Bucket's just-released video is time-lapsed and edited together to demonstrate how beautiful (and fluid) the Fluid Dress could actually be. Composed of over 600 feet of knitted tubing and a...

Karl Lagerfeld Compares Facebook to Brancusi, And Some Other Crazy Talk

God, we love Karl Lagerfeld. Maybe you're not a fashion fan, maybe you're offended by his unapologetic weightism or maybe you think he looks like the death mask of Bela Lugosi, but you cannot ignore the man's witticisms (if you can call them that) or his pronouncements on what is and is not de rigueur. "I'm rather pro-prostitution," the designer once said. "I admire people who do it. It can't be...

Boutiques.com: Google's Fashion Foray Is Fun (and Full of Filters), But Falls Flat

Gosh, fashion quizzes are incredibly awkward. Those endlessly clickable little surveys of your likes and dislikes are often so broadly wrong in their attempts to translate something so nuanced, particular and personalized into a "type." We had trouble with this when we sampled Like.com, because the fashion world -- suddenly rocked by DIY bloggers' and street style fans' indie "curation" -- is...
