Blog 4: New York Magazine, Fashion Week

Screen Shot 2015-03-09 at 1.20.26 PM The Cut is the fashion, beauty, and lifestyle department of New York Magazine. They covered New York Fashion Week extensively by uploading a variety of content online, and it’s very easy to navigate. The very top of their fashion page is an interactive box that lets you scroll down a list of different designers, and there’s a cutout of a runway photo to accompany each designer. There are tabs so you can look at the latest shows, top shows, and a full alphabetical list of the shows. It’s simple and engaging and is an easy way to include photos. The cutouts immediately grab your attention when you visit the site.

It’s simple, but it works. Because there’s an entire section on The Cut related to Runway, it makes it easy to aggregate all of the content related to Fashion Week.
