Must Haves For Fashion Week - There's an App for That

More news on the "fashion meets technology" front - DJK

Fashionista: Many an iPhone-wielding fashion editor could not get through New York Fashion Week without Fashion GPS Radar, a free app that allows users to manage the multitude of show and party invites they receive each season, all in one handy calendar. The app is about to get even more useful thanks to a recent update: For the first time ever, editors can now use the app to request samples from collections within hours of a show.

Fashion GPS has organized the app into two menus: One for event calendars, and a second for image/show galleries, the latter of which will allow editors to see (and even download) slideshows of collections and request samples. Given that this is the first time Fashion GPS is offering such a service on mobile (it has been offered via Fashion GPS’s website for the past few seasons), not all brands will support it, but those rep’d by KCD — whose clients include big names like Marc Jacobs and Victoria Beckham — will, as will a number of Australian labels. The feature currently works for about 100 collections, a spokesperson for Fashion GPS tells Fashionista, adding that the company is expecting to sign up many new clients in the coming weeks.

FashionNotes: The CFDA has created a digital calendar that you can access from your computer and your phone. The calendar lists all the presentations and shows during NYFW. Attendees can sort through all the different lists by categories from menswear, women’s wear, designers and more; the calendar has it all. Then attendees can add the shows they would like to attend to their own personal calendar.

Warning, content below represents a man's libidinous fascination with an automobile. It is not Lolita; after all Bradley Berman, the author, is not Nabokov and the Wraith is not underaged. Nonetheless, I find myself simultaneously repulsed... and seduced. David J. Katz

Discounts, Discovery & Delight: 3Ds for Retail Success

In fashion and retail, Dopamine is the drug of choice. Technically, Dopamine is the neurotransmitter of “desire.” Dopamine leaps across synapses in our brain to control our reward and pleasure centers. It enables craving. It induces repeat behaviors. It makes us want more. Therefore, it is in our best interest to create products and experiences which induce the release of dopamine in our consumers. We could use some dopamine for ourselves, too. In our fashion and retail world, there are three primary stimuli, "3Ds," we can control to deliver hits of dopamine: Discounts, Discovery and Delight.
