Cosmo launches 3D magazine cover featuring Cat Deeley!

I was doing my weekly shop ay Tesco last night and a flickering image caught my eye as I browsed the magazine isle. Was I deliriously hungry, or was Cat Deeley actually swishing her hair at me from the cover of Cosmo’s September issue?

You’ll be glad to hear I am not losing my mind! Cosmopolitan magazine has launched a special edition 3D magazine cover featuring a hologram of the TV presenter!

In celebration of her being the new face of Pantene Pro-V Aqua Light, Cosmo has released a special collectors edition of the magazine.

As you move the mag you will see Cat perform her signature hair swish –  in recognition of Pantene’s “Make a Swisssh” campaign.

Only 50,000 copies  will be distributed (via Tesco only) so if you want to own a piece of Fashionology history – Cosmo’s very first 3D fashion magazine cover – AND get your hands on the free Pantene product and £1 voucher inside, get down to you nearest Tesco ASAP!

Sony Ericsson launches X10 Mini Pro in white!

White has become the must-wear colour this summer, proof of which can be seen in the fact that the LWD (little white dress) has become the choice over the classic LBD!

Sony has managed to stay on top of the trend and has just announced the launch of the Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro in white.

This handset is petite and très chic, measuring less than 10 cm long – the perfect clutch bag size, thank you Sony. Style icon Jade Jagger has even named it on her  “white accessories wishlist”!

It is available on Google’s  Android operating system, exclusively on Three. It is a touch screen  phone but also has a full sliding QWERTY keyboard, ideal for those who like the option of both.

It comes with  a five megapixel camera and features Sony Ericsson Timescape™ which is basically a live feed off all your texts, emails and social media posts.

The Sony Ericsson X10 Mini Pro in white is  available from Three stores on The One Plan, offering 1GB of Data, 5000 texts, 2000 any network minutes, 5000 Three to Three minutes for £30 a month. See in stores for more details.

This is a very stylish phone and in the simplest way. Sony, Fashionology approves!

Fashionology footwear – elevator shoes and more 3D printing

Are you too short to reach those beautiful dresses hanging on the top rail in clothes shops?  Do you want to appear taller without having to wear heels all the time? Or maybe you are tired of craning your neck to kiss your dashingly tall boyfriend?

Well now, throw that Yellow Pages in the bin, there is a solution!

SHORT++ are interactive robotic shoes that can literally elevate you to new heights! These innovative shoes, created by Adi Marom, are controlled by an iPhone app, so with the touch of a button you can be a few inches taller! To view her videos just click the image below.

They may not be the most beautiful creations, but they are a start!

My last blog post talked about 3D printing and this is going to big, you heard it here first! Students at two of Stockholm’s  most prestigious design schools have collaborated to produce the first, fully-wearable 3D printed shoes.

Naim Josefi of Beckmans and Souzan Youssouf of Konstfack, both designed and modelled the prototypes for Naim’s “Melonia” collection, shown during Stockholm Fashion Show earlier this year.

The concept is brilliant – creating artful shoes using Selective Laser Sintering.
