Ever wondered just how much of an impression does technology leave on fashionistas? Well, I found out for myself. After admiring the new iPad since it came out, my love decided to get it for me, and I haven’t been able to stop using it since! I am sure that this will be an indispensable item for me in the future.
But first, I wanted to share a certain Warsaw event which is bringing about a larger international audience, inviting designers from Russia and Spain. Juan Pedro Lopez graced the salons of Soho Factory in Warsaw with his A/W 2012 collection last Saturday, bringing in the Polish (and not only) fashionistas.
Showing a collection of pieces with motifs of brightly lit cathedrals in jewel and amber shades, the designer really expressed a warmth usually unseen on the Slavic catwalks.
But what truly interested me this time at the Warsaw Fashion Weekend were the stalls and how the iPad camera would react to the colours and movement of the crowds milling around. I was pleasantly surprised… The graphics were clear, the photo editing was marvellous, and I got a bonus for all the strange looks towards me, of people thinking I must be mad, going around with an iPad like it was a camera, shooting pictures the whole time. I love the whole screen- it reacts differently to a camera, but the effect is almost superior to some of the digital cameras. I would definitely recommend the iPad to all graphic artists and photographers.
And if you don’t believe me, here are the unedited pictures!
