Photos: An inside look at India’s digital fashion week amid the pandemic | Fashion and Style

Posted on

Not to miss the October deadline, the Fashion Design Council of India converted parts of its office building into a studio in a bustling industrial area of New Delhi. It created a stage, screens and bespoke lighting to facilitate shooting of fashion films and videos by the designers.

It wasn’t easy to meet the strict COVID-19 restrictions. The entire building was sanitized, as were the designers’ clothes.

Models, film crews, photographers, designers and the design council staff could step in after they tested negative for the coronavirus. Face masks were mandatory, except briefly, for the models onstage.

Some designers even chose to film in private farm houses, their own or leased for the purpose.

Designers participating in the fashion show include Varun Bahl, Tarun Tahiliani, Suneet Varma, Shivan and Narresh, Shantanu and Nikhil, Rohit Gandhi, Rahul Khanna, Rina Dhaka, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Payal Jain, Nitin Bal Chauhan, Namrata Joshipura, Geisha Designs, Dhi, Ashish Soni and Abhishek Gupta.

The design council has created an online “designer showroom,” a dedicated space where designers can upload their look-books and hold virtual meetings with domestic and international buyers.

Tandon says online shows are here to stay. Still, people would prefer looking at an outfit physically, especially heavier and costly pieces, rather than gazing at the screen before making a decision to buy it.

If you love the modern convenience of snapping photos with your phone, but hate that you can’t easily display shots on your walls or desk, then we found the perfect gadget for you.

Today only, Amazon is having a sale on the Nixplay Seed 10.1-inch digital photo frame. Originally going for $180, it’s down to $115 for a limited time—you’ll save $65!

This digital photo frame is popular, indeed: It has earned a flawless five-star rating from nearly 4,000 reviewers.

But shop now—the sale expires at the end of the day.

So what makes this photo frame so special? The gift-worthy Nixplay Seed 10.1-inch digital photo frame has a wide display that auto-adjusts to portrait or landscape modes, a motion sensor that turns on and off when you enter or leave a room and works with Alexa so it can play music upon request with just the sound of your voice.

This is so easy to use. I had never used Google Photos before but it was very easy to create albums that automatically added pictures of the people I selected.

Since neither of them are ‘techie’ I set up the app on my phone and one on my sister’s phone. So we end up sending pictures to each other’s accounts and they show up on my dad’s and grandma’s unit. It works for us. The unit is nice, sleek and feels quality.”

Fittop Announces the Launch of Smart Multi-Functional Beauty Devices at Cosmoprof Asia Digital Week

Posted on

Revamped L-Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush

To provide users with a more comfortable skin care experience, Fittop has upgraded its L-Sonic Facial Cleansing Brush by equipping it with an ultrasonic motor core. With this new improvement, vibrations can only be felt on the bristles, not the entire body of the device, thus offering a comfortable hand grip and pleasant user experience.

Other new features of the device include:

  1. Unique thick and thin dual silicone bristles design – Thick silicone bristles provide easy cleansing to the nose wing, T-zone and other areas that are prone to oil secretion; while the thin silicone bristles are designed to gently clean the sensitive and dedicate areas of the skin.
  2. Three modes of cleansing intensity to meet different skin requirements.
  3. Three LED lights for calming the skin and acne removal – Red light promotes cell activation and energy revitalisation, green light rejuvenates and soothes the skin, while blue light calms the skin and removes acne.
  4. 3D sonic technology for deep-cleansing of skin pores – Brush bristles vibrate 1.1mm horizontally and rotate 5° forward and backward. This high-frequency vibration assists in the removal of oil and dirt deep within the pores.

New Beauty Devices

On the other hand, Fittop’s novel RF Beauty Device is aimed at improving skin problems such as dehydration, poor absorption of essence, large pores, rough texture, lack of elasticity, and slow metabolism through the use of high radio frequency energy which penetrates deep into the dermis. This process not only activates collagen production, but stimulates the metabolism as well.

Meanwhile, the Plasma Acne Beauty Device uses plasma rejuvenation technology to purify the skin by removing mites and bacteria from the skin’s surface while stimulating collagen regeneration and smoothening acne pits and marks; and the Blue LED Light Acne Beauty Device emits blue light waves that are able to penetrate into the dermis to destroy acne-causing bacteria that may have taken residence in the skin.

Founded in 2006, Fittop is actively involved in the research and development of high-tech beauty devices, having obtained a number of utility model patents. Fittop is always providing the unique and the most competitive products, which are exported to more than 20 countries, including the United States, Canada, Germany, Japan, and widely recognised by customers at home and abroad.

Global Digital Talents Second Edition Brings Disruption To Fashion Industry

Posted on

Show must go on. This too shall pass. Someone has to be in charge of optimism here! Fashion has always functioned as a litmus test for global social trends. Are the hems going up or down, the belts loosening or tightening, how broad are the shoulders for the current weight of the world? After months of coronavirus lockdowns, the importance of living in the present got us power dressing from the waist up and easing into comfort fabrics 24/7. The future is unpredictable and the bridges to “the way things were” have burned. The current retail crisis has brought a more in-depth understanding on how loudly the fashion system is pleading for a dramatic change. We are increasingly aware of the need to minimize waste, provide fair employment opportunities with livable wages, and prioritize sustainability across the entire design process. Fashion weeks are digitizing their platforms and fashion schools are reinventing the how-to for future generations. Ethical fashion revolution will be livestreamed! For example, the second edition of Global Talents Digital was virtually attended by over seven million visitors. It speaks to the growing interest in fashion alternatives. Powered by the Russian Fashion Council and Mercedez-Benz Fashion Week Russia, the event featured 101 designers from 34 countries. From sourcing materials to textile experimentation to indigenous craftsmanship and upcycling design principles, this cohort of visionaries was full of practical ideas redefining, if not disrupting, what fashion was and what it must become in order to survive as an industry in a post-pandemic world. Here are eleven names worth noting with eye towards the unknown yet hopeful future.

Paula Ulargui Escalona @ulargui_escalona (Spain)

Sustainable Fashion Investigator. That’s the term the designer prefers for their provocative work. Believing that humankind may atone for the damage inflicted on the planet, the project is a call to commit to co-existing with nature. Her collection “Naturaleza Simbiotica” incorporates seeds, plants, biomaterials, and living organisms into the garments, blending clothes, bodies, and nature with a willingness to lead the path to a more conscientious fashion landscape, literally. 

Bola Yahala @bolayahaya_ng (Nigeria)

Self-taught designer Yahaya Taofeeq is interested in sharing their “autobiographical fashion narrative” with the world. Switching historical and cultural lenses on the idea of a female form, the brand reinterprets rich Nigerian style heritage in beautiful zero-waste garments through innovative pattern cutting/draping, recycling, and upcycling. Vibrant colors give life to a unique fashion vision coming from the

AP PHOTOS: India holds digital fashion week amid pandemic

Posted on

“Phygital Edition” is India’s first digital fashion week, held from Wednesday through Sunday. It livestreams the spring-summer collections by more than 40 designers under the banner of Lotus Make-up India Fashion Week. Ten designers showcase their work each day.

For months, designers, models, make-up artists and film crews worked to create the fusion of the physical and virtual fashion, adapting to the virus restrictions.

The designers have pre-shot films that are showcased online on key digital platforms — Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.

Nikhita Tandon, a designer, is hopeful of a big response, considering everyone is connected in today’s digital world.

“Earlier we could accommodate a maximum of 500 people in the hall while now it is massive in comparison, we all know that digital world is the new thing in marketing,” she said.

But she sees a huge difference between a live show and watching the images online. “When we see a garment in front of our eyes, there is a different feel in the embellishments,” she said.

“Another challenge is the timeline within which a garment had to be made, because for the digital show there is a whole process that goes down after the garments are ready. So for hosting the show digitally the decreased timeline is challenging as well,” Tandon said.

Not to miss the October deadline, the Fashion Design Council of India converted parts of its office building into a studio in a bustling industrial area of New Delhi. It created a stage, screens and bespoke lighting to facilitate shooting of fashion films and videos by the designers.

It wasn’t easy to meet the strict COVID-19 restrictions. The entire building was sanitized, as were the designers’ clothes.

Models, film crews, photographers, designers and the design council staff could step in after they tested negative for the coronavirus. Face masks were mandatory, except briefly, for the models onstage.

Some designers even chose to film in private farm houses, their own or leased for the purpose.

Designers participating in the fashion show include Varun Bahl, Tarun Tahiliani, Suneet Varma, Shivan and Narresh, Shantanu and Nikhil, Rohit Gandhi, Rahul Khanna, Rina Dhaka, Rajesh Pratap Singh, Payal Jain, Nitin Bal Chauhan, Namrata Joshipura, Geisha Designs, Dhi, Ashish Soni and Abhishek Gupta.

NEW DELHI (AP) — Unlike a fashion show, the models aren’t swaying on a ramp in real life. They are depending on digital technology to rescue their annual extravaganza from the coronavirus pandemic.

This year’s Fashion Awards is going digital

Posted on

The British Fashion Council has announced that the 2020 Fashion Awards will be taking place in a new format as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions placed on large gatherings in the UK. The annual event – which tends to take place in London in December and always draws in a big A-list crowd – will this year be a digital-only event.

The 2020 Fashion Awards will be held on Thursday 3 December and will “honour and celebrate the designers, brands, creatives and individuals who have created positive change within the fashion industry this year”, the BFC announced in a statement.

This year, there will be a focus on those who bravely and pro-actively dealt with the pandemic, who showed leadership and creative resilience and who stood up to prejudice within the fashion industry. The awards will likely celebrate and respond to efforts to encourage diversity within the fashion industry after a summer of Black Lives Matter protests which took place across the UK and around the world.

“What the past couple of months have shown us, is that the fashion industry is in need of a reset,” BFC CEO Caroline Rush said. “This is why this year, under unique circumstances, we felt that it was important to recognise the people and businesses who played a role in some of the most important and challenging issues of our generation and champion those who raised the bar in areas such as diversity, sustainability, and community.”

The award show, which is being sponsored by Swarovski again, will honour 20 individuals and brands, who will all receive a ‘2020 Fashion Award’ for a specific contribution. These will be announced as part of a short film that will document the fashion industry in this extraordinary year. The BFC will also, for the third year running, compile the ‘New Wave: Creatives’ list which highlights up-and-coming fashion talent.

Although 2020’s award show will be digital only, the BFC announced hopeful plans to host a physical award show the following year, taking place at the Royal Albert Hall on 29 November 2021.

“The ceremony will be reimagined to reflect the BFC’s new mission and with the ambition to have technology and engagement at its heart, looking at innovations for amplification and new experiences,” the BFC explained.
