An online fashion outfit performance stage, the ‘I’m Wearing This’ app consists of an integrated Instagram API, which feeds live images to a page through selective search criteria. These clearly defined images vary across fashion brands and products bought by the customer and represented by the customer, through personally owned photography. Influential pieces which have informed the project include todayimwearing.com and Pinterest, the broader concept of todayimwearing is to be expanded to allow users to compare contrast and examine fashion much in the way that Pinterest allows users to collate content. However, while Pinterest allows the static comparison of content, ‘I’m Wearing This’ will pull categorised feeds from Instagram. Furthermore, in narrowing the user search, the considered utilisation of tags through genres (gothic, vintage) and emotions (angry, romantic, prim, demure) will be implemented.
The materials that will be used within the project that I don’t possess license to, include the hash tagged fashion Instagram images. These images are live on social media (Instagram) and my aim is to pull these images onto my site as a live feed direct from Instagram. Therefore, no ethical issues should arise, as I will be adhering to all Copyright and Protection laws.
A Structured timeline will be adhered to throughout the project and updated on an ongoing basis for the duration of the project.
