Essential Lumia apps for London Fashion Week

Starting today, the fashion-elite from around the globe gather in London to show off their Autumn/Winter 2013 collections. To ensure that we’re as up-to-date as possible when it come to the latest styles, we’ve selected some of our favourite fashion or style apps from the Windows Phone Store, for Nokia Lumia.

Vogue – Free



If it’s fashion news you’re after, than look no further than Vogue.

Vogue is split into three sections; Daily News, People & Parties, and Twitter.

Daily news delivers news articles, such as Lara Stone taking part in this years Red Nose Day activities, as well as a ‘This Week in Pictures’, which is everything you’d expect it to be. You can share these articles with your like-minded friends using Facebook, Twitter or good old-fashioned email.

People & Parties put you in the front row at the catwalk and behind the scenes at some of the world’s biggest fashion events. With a never-ending gallery of images, you’ll know what’s hot, and what’s not.

Twitter keeps you connected to British Vogue’s latest tweets. This is essential if you want to know exactly what’s happening in fashion, the moment it happens.

Zara – Free



While catwalk fashion is both fascinating and exciting, we all want to know exactly what’s available to buy right now on the high street; that’s where Zara app comes in handy.

The interface is really simple, as it’s all laid out into different sections. If you want to look for clothes for men, find the Man section, Clothes for women, click on the Woman, and so on.

If you’re looking to buy items instead of just browsing, you can add them to your shopping cart and purchase them once you’ve finished your search. These items can be delivered right to you home, or another address you prefer.

However, if you prefer to see your clothes in a store and try them on before you purchase them, there’s a handy built-in store locator that makes the shopping experience that much simpler.

Fashion Show Photographs Tile – Free or £1.49 to remove the in-app ads.



Fashion events are about capturing what’s new in the world of fashion and sharing pictures with people who love fashion.

While this app isn’t an official one of any kind, it connects you directly with the ‘Fashion Shows‘ Flickr group and displays the latest 20 photos uploaded there. Photos often come from fashion shows, or from stylish people on the street.

Images can be saved to your phone, or set as your lock screen background image directly from within the app. There’s also a Live tile notifies you when any new content is added.

Fancy – Free



Fancy is all about sharing the fashions you like with your friends or followers across social networks.

You can browse through the vast catalogue of items; from stylish clothing, to accessories and homeware.

The nice part is you can also create content, rather than just reading/looking at other people’s content.

If you see something you want to share with people, take a photo of it from your Nokia Lumia (or select it from your photo album), add a title, choose a relevant category, add it to a list, and add some comments to get the conversation started.

If people like it, they can comment on it and share it with all their friends.

Sharing is automatically done via Facebook and Twitter, providing you’ve signed in and authorised that to happen, of course.

These apps are all available for the Nokia Lumia 920, Lumia 820, or Lumia 620, as well as other Nokia Lumia smartphones.
