When it comes to fashion, we’ve all got our own taste. Funky, trendy, a la mode…and the same can be said of modern technology, what we like and how we use it. So when fashionistas get the chance, there’s nothing better than a fashion-friendly app to keep us up to date with modern trends. But what if we want to set heads turning ourselves? Well how about one of these super-cool apps to help you create your own designs or keep up to date with the latest runway trends.
Ask a Stylist
Fashion favourite magazine, Glamour, lets you take the hard work out of deciding whether your outfit choice has enough street cred to make it past the front door. Take a picture of your chosen clothes, upload them, and choose the stylist whose opinion you’d like most. It’s like asking your girlfriends for their advice before as big night out, only these friends are super small and fit in your pocket.
A definite must for followers of fashion, and particularly those with a large wardrobe, the Stylebook app lets you upload images of all the items you own and drag them into outfits together to see how they look. It takes the hassle out of all those changes you’d make otherwise.
If you’re running low on inspiration, this handy app from Style.com lets you browse hundreds of current and past collections by major designers. It’s a great choice for up and coming designers and keeps high street shoppers up to date on the latest trends.

apps from around the globe. It features fashion trends and favourites from people worldwide with
similar interests. Fashion bloggers, design students and even ordinary people can help shape the
next trends in design.
This handy app is great for budding fashion designers keeping an eye on what’s hot and what’s not on catwalks and streets in cities everywhere. Get the latest fashion news and snippets on the go with this innovative app.
Fashion Network Original
The phrase ‘networking is key’ is very apt for this little app which collates information from all the major runway shows in fashion hotspot cities like Paris, Milan, Los Angeles and more. It delivers interviews with designers as well as tips on hair and makeup to help you get your next innovative look just right.
For online shopping without the hassle, the Shopstyle app is the comparison site of the fashion world. Happily hunting through all major online retailers it comes up with clothing suggestions based on your search category. Type in ‘red sweater’ and before long your scroll screen will be full of nifty numbers ready to be snapped up.

As fashion designers go, Ralph Lauren is as famous as you can get. While lots of brand names have their own apps, Mr Lauren’s has a great rating thanks to its elegant style, trending information and interviews with the man himself. Not only do you get a look at his latest collection but you get footage from the runway as if you were there.
