What is FASHIONOLOGY all about? :)
FASHIONOLOGY is set to treat its guests to a peek into the future of new media consumption by fashionistas.
Inspired by the international advertising agency, Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo branch, FASHIONOLOGY, among many other surprises, will feature the Image Search functions 'sort by color' and 'similar images' and shows that you can do more with Google than you imagined!
Living in contemporary times, we simply do not see a search engine for images, nor a projector for looking at Powerpoint documents. FASHIONOLOGY aims to present these tools that could be harnessed and taken into a new context to create a fun, exciting, and overall rewarding interaction.
FASHIONOLOGY will also advocate a simple message - we need to stop thinking about technology in an everyday context, and begin to expand its usage to form new experiences.
In keeping with the high-tech aspirations of this event, a live stream of tweets regarding the event through the social network Twitter (an event hash tag will accompany these tweets) will be displayed majestically in the hall.
This aims to get the event trending on the virtual world and reach out to a far wider audience, as well as making everyone feel even more connected in support of the cause.
