PadGadget Essentials – This Week’s Apps and Accessories for Fashion Week

September brings the beginning of the fall season, meaning all new winter wardrobes filled with stylish jackets, warm boots, and flashy scarves. The start of the month also marks the kick off of New York’s famous Fashion Week, and to celebrate, we focused on all things fashion.

Check out our list of essential fashion apps and accessories for the iPad to see the must haves for the fall season, covering everything we posted this week, plus a few surprises, too!


There are an array of fashion apps on the iPad for fashionistas and shopaholics. You won’t want to miss apps like Gilt for iPad, which allows you to purchase the hottest fashion labels at a deep discount, and Zappos Mobile, which has all of the latest fall shoes, including a myriad of stylish boots.

You can create your own personalized fashion magazine with Pose, but if real magazines are your thing, you can get access to fashion mags like Glamour and Vogue on your iPad. Love jewels? Try the Swarovski Elements magazine. For even more fashion magazine suggestions, check out our original list.

If you want to stage your own at-home fashion photo shoots, then you won’t want to miss Scott Kelby’s Lighting Recipes for tips on how to get studio quality photos in your living room. You’ll also want to check out Photo FX Ultra’s fun filters and effects for all your post processing work.

Planning your fashion week party? Who about whipping up some fondue? Our own Emily took a look at the Fondue & Raclette for iPad, and ranked it four and a half stars. It’s a must have for any trendy party.


We found several accessories that will be ultra popular this fall, from the crimson-colored Braven 600 speaker to the simple but gorgeously designed Architect Stylus.

If you have extra cash to spend and you want to your iPad to look every bit as good as you do, consider an iPad case from a famous name like Vivienne Westwood or Rebecca Minkoff. These cases don’t come cheap, but they sure to do look fancy.
