I have very, very little interest in high fashion (although I did study fashion for a semester in Uni more about that later). Fashgif’s is a really cool idea. I find that Gifs that activate a small part of the image are visually more interesting, and take less time to load. I really hope that Vogue or maybe cooler magazines like Purple are adopting ideas like this for their ipad editions. They’d be fools if they didn’t. Now is probably a good time to mention Fashematics aswell, a tumblr that could only be pulled off by a designer like Zawada. I loved Fashematics the first time I saw it because this is actually how I think when I’m generating ideas for a design.
