The Sunday Times has published the first in a series of App Lists today, sharing ideas for apps of all kinds. I have just installed two that give a great insight into fashion and knitwear.
The Sunday Times App List Supplement
Vogue Daily News (iPhone, Android, Blackberry: Free) has a round up of what's going on in the Vogue World. Todays news section has an article on Christian Wijnant and his nomination for the International Woolmark Prize. Wijnant is working with one white merino yarn to explore shape, stitches and dyeing processes. The International Woolmark Prize of $100,000 AUD will be announced after the regional winners show their collections to the judging panel at London Fashion Week.
Tokyo Fashion (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone: Free) has an ever changing set of street style images from Tokyo. A search for 'knitwear' brings up some interesting designers who showed at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Tokyo last year. Yasutoshi Ezumi's biography highlights his links to Central St Martins and Alexander McQueen. The photos of his Autumn/ Winter 2012-13 knitwear collection are full of fabulously draped cables.
