Fashion Week has officially begun, and let's face it, we all dream of sitting in those coveted front row seats, shoulder-to-shoulder with the biggest names in the industry. While some have scored some invites, there is only so much space on those already over crowded benches. But no worries, this season we have you covered. Whether you are trying to up your #NYFW coverage game or trying to keep track of the latest in fashion from the comfort of your home, these apps will take you directly to the runway, behind-the-scenes, and beyond. Track your favorite designers' shows, share your content, shop straight off the runway, or watch out for New York street style all from the palm of your hands.
Hyperlapse: For the Lucky Fashion Week Attendees
The avid Fashion Week goer knows that every show is a whirlwind of people, lights, and of course—the main event-the fashion. Everyone in attendance is snapping photos and taking insta-vids, but recording content to share can be pain (our heads are spinning as we dart from look to look and from model to screen). Thank God for Hyperlapse, the app that will take your content to a whole new level. Whether it is a fast walking group of street style mavens or the models on the runway, this app will record the scene and then miraculously stabilize your content. Afterwards, you can pick what speed you want the video to play back, and out comes the final professional-worthy product.
Flipboard: For the Need to Know-it-All
When it comes to the fashion world, most of us are already well versed in social media lingo. We tweet, post, and pin on the regular. While Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and Pinterest have all done the job in the past, this season we need something a little more personal … insert Flipboard. Want to see the backstage pics Karl just tweeted, keep tabs on Karlie Koss, and catch up on today's WWD articles all in one place with a swipe of a finger? This media-displaying app allows the user to see an updated digital Flipbook of fashion news and updates from fashion goers all in one place. How it works: your social media is organized into different pages, all collaged beautifully together and updated immediately, so you'll never miss a beat.
