A true fashionista not only knows the trends but also the industry that makes them trendy in the first place. New York Magazine has an app for Droid that features, among other things, fashion-focused blog The Cut (iPad users, there's an app just for The Cut). The column covers everything fashion-related, including advertising analysis, model profiles, background info on designers and tips on where to find the hottest products. Readers local to the New York area will get even more out of the experience since The Cut includes info on which stores are offering sales. The app interface makes it easy to skim through the stories, offering witty snippets of each story to draw the reader in. With a ton of fashion-oriented articles at your fingertips, The Cut is the perfect app for fashionistas who have some free time on their perfectly manicured hands.
