This is England 90: A look at life in Newcastle back in the day as Channel 4 show debuts TV viewers have been buzzing about This is England 90 since it made its debut on Sunday night and the Channel 4 show has got us thinking that we should take a step back in time to what Newcastle was like in the 1990s. While the new Shane Meadows series concerns itself with rave culture and the 1990 World Cup, we decided to widen the net by looking at different areas of North East life throughout the decade that brought us the Spice Girls, Alan Shearer in a black and white shirt and Kappa tracksuits. Yes, the days when Woolworths mix ups were a regularly tasty treat, you’d grab your popcorn and head to UCI Cinema at the Metro Centre rather than the Odeon because Metroland was still there and many a meal was had at Clockwork Court and Wimpy. Fashion Fruit of the Loom anyone? Ladies- how many of you owned a neon scrunchie from the Grainger Market or an outfit from Bay Trading or Tammy Girl?

What Life Would Be Like Without Cellphones ‘Bionic model’ will strut down New York Fashion Week runway with prosthetic arm During fashion house FTL Moda’s New York Fashion Week show at Grand Central Station’s Vanderbilt Hall on Sunday, model Rebekah Marine will strut down the runway with one of the most unique accessories — a bionic arm. Philadelphia-based Marine, who was born without a right forearm, was fitted with an i-limb quantum earlier this year. The i-limb is one of the most advanced prostheses available, and with it, Marine has quickly become one of the most visible faces in a fashion world becoming increasingly more inclusive to models with disabilities. This will be Marine’s second time walking down a New York Fashion Week runway.

Comercial Galletas Quaker Colombia 2012 Zendaya Breaks Down The Difference Between Cultural Appropriation and Appreciation Pezet - Supergirl (Auer Remix) How Machine Vision Is About to Change the Fashion World In the 2006 film The Devil Wears Prada, the notorious fashion editor Miranda Priestly sizes up people at a glance by analyzing their clothes, who designed them, and what year they date from. Priestly’s character is famously inspired by Anna Wintour, the long standing editor-in-chief of Vogue, herself a style icon. –> But if a human can recognize and date fashion styles with little more than a glance, why not a machine? Chen and co begin by training their machine vision algorithm to identify an individual’s body pose in an image and then to divide the body into nine regions—the upper and lower arms and legs, and the torso. Comparing fashion styles then boils down to the relatively simple mathematical process of comparing these 72-dimension vectors. Next, they assemble two databases of photographs. Fashion week is a significant event in New York. To find out, Chen co use their machine vision algorithm to identify these trends and see how they influence street chic.

Major Lazer - Bubble Butt (feat. Bruno Mars, 2 Chainz, Tyga & Mystic) - Directed by Eric Wareheim how pop art influenced fashion Creative industries typically need each other to survive - art feeds on music, music feeds on art, fashion feeds on both and advertising eats everything it can get its mouth around. The bond between fashion and art is currently as strong as ever as evidenced everywhere from Prada's Spring/Summer 2014 commission of six graffiti artists, Bottega Veneta's work with Ryan McGinley and the modern-art-museum-worth of Louis Vuitton collaborations with artists like Yayoi Kusama to Takashi Murakami and Richard Prince. This commercially fruitful partnership goes back to the first half of the 20th Century, when Salvador Dali placed a giant-sized lobster on a white Elsa Schiapparelli dinner dress. Speaking to Wayne Tunnicliffe, the charismatic curator of Sydney's Pop to Popism exhibition, he explains that the relationship has been intensifying ever since. Pop artists didn't only use fashion in their work they also used fashion designers. Yves Saint Laurent by Andy Warhol, 1974
