Trend Stop Fashion - Trend tracker
The news section is a feed of the Trendstop's fashion news, the trend section seems to be a subset of the news and provides a sample of the latest trends articles. In the designer section, it is fairly easy to browse designers and access fashion shows' pictures and videos, a search box allows to quickly find a designer instead of scrolling through the long list for ages, a feature that is absent from the Fashion Network app. Additionally, it is possible to mark designers as favorites and store them in the favorites section.
Another photo sharing app, Trendabl has been dubbed "the instagram of fashion." With Trendabl, you can take photos, upload them to Facebook, Twitter and/or Tumblr, and tag the pieces you like.
