Have you ever wished you could carry a digital fashion cheat sheet with you everywhere you go? I will be honest with you; being a fashion student myself, I often wished my various heavy study books, including garment category books, textile guide and fashion history manual could all be combined in one simple and light device, allowing me to have access to unlimited information at my fingertips. When I talk to others about my program of studies, they are always shockingly surprised that fashion design students are not simply taught how to sew, draw figures and make patterns. Indeed, to everybody’s astonishment, fashion design studies focus also on rigorous and extensive knowledge concerning fashion history, textile and fibers, market analysis, product development as well as garment classification. Thus, since the fashion industry is such a vast and competitive, yet opportunistic environment, aspiring and future workers are required to be highly creative and talented as well as outstandingly knowledgeable. This is why we see a great increase in the production and development of books and mobile applications providing in-depth information concerning fashion.
Around a week ago, I shared with you my top 5 fashion applications for mobile devices that fully fulfill and satisfy every curiously intellectual fashionistas’ need for thorough information (You can still read this post at https://innoonesland.com/2015/03/15/millennials-fashion-app-revolution/). One app that was mentionned is called FAD: The Ultimate Fashion Dictionary. I want to explore this app a little further, since I strongly believe it is highly valuable for any of my readers who’s got passion for fashion. As you can see, the name says it all, it is definitely your ultimate go-to app when it comes to satisfy your ceasless craving for fashion related knowledge. FAD, an acronym for the full name is also cleverly related to the fashion business (If you have already downloaded the app, you would know that a fad is a temporary fashion, notion, behavior, that is followed enthusiastically by a group of people).
So, how does this app work? FAD allows you to browse your history and add particular terms you might need constantly to your “Favorites” list. This all provides you with related articles based on your personal search and gives you further browsing suggestions, permitting you to stay intellectually challenged.
