Posted in Inspiration, Web Interfaces • Posted on 10 Comments

Fashion is a cultural phenomena and a means of personal expression. It has been around for ages and is undeniably a big phenomena. It is important to those that follow fashion trends, and for many people fashion is an integral part of their life and identity. Getting into the hostile world of high fashion is a great achievement for those that are passionate about it as the industry is undying and it gets bigger by the minute. That’s why it has decided to take over the world wide web as well.

When it comes to fashion, everyone’s a critic. “High-fashion” means taking things over-the-edge. Seeing designs in an unusual or unique way that would actually gain signature. Sometimes, high-fashion could also mean ” going totally whacko” – Just like the ever notorious fashion icon, Lady Gaga. But of course, a high-fashion website can be played well with great Photography and cutting-edge web designs.

    It took some time to the fashion industry to get very nice web pages as they need no to tell but to show. In the past nice fashion web sites meant slow loading page as designers were unable to downsize those image with out loosing blurring, or flash sites were too heavy to load in less them a minute or much less. Now new browsers capabilities and better experienced web designers and front-end developers had help make possible such successful and creative sites.

    It would seem that large pictures are the hip thing to do on fashion websites. Doesn’t surprise me though, pictures speak volumes.

    P.S. Chuck Norris knows Victoria’s secret.
