2017 has already kicked off to be an interesting year. Oscar nominations were announced this morning and you can already anticipate reactions from the fashion world. Nominees and their stylists are already planning amazing gowns and outfits to grace the red carpet on Oscar night. Not only are the Oscars are time to celebrate the film world, but they also put the spotlight on style and fashion. Fashion houses and designers receive an incredible boost of worldwide recognition when an actress wears their creations during awards season; especially on Oscar night and to the after parties. The day after the Oscars, photographs of actors and actresses are splashed across the internet and print magazines. Fashion pundits will discuss and critique not only Oscar gowns and fashion looks, but also accessories such as clutch bags and even iPhone cases. Hollywood and the fashion world have a love affair with the iPhone so it will be no surprise that cute iPhone cases will be on display at the Oscars.
Fashion and tech have truly collided over the past few years. They are two worlds that compliment each other. Both famous designers and small start-up fashion brands alike are designing tech accessories; especially for the iPhone. Designer iPhone cases have never been more popular or in demand as they are in 2017. Back in September, Apple introduced the new iPhone 7 and 7 plus. As with all new iPhone updates, the 7 model was a hit with the fashion crowd. Tech accessories are not only another aspect of a fashion business, but they are also an aesthetic. When designers create iPhone cases, they always keep the silhouette of the phone in mind. Since the iPhone is sleek and understated, it doesn’t make sense to design and manufacture a clunky or bulky case. Even though it’s larger in size, newer iPhones rest easily in the palm of the hand and should be encased in something equally as elegant. In 2017, fashion is not only about clothes, but a woman’s lifestyle. So many of us are glued to our iPhones; answering emails and scrolling through Instagram that it makes perfect sense designers would expand their lines to include tech cases. Style stars and celebrities are often photographed with their iPhones and you can see what cute cases they choose to protect their smartphone.
Fashion at the Oscars sets a precedent for the years new direction in style. What we see on the red carpet often translates into a variation of looks which are later available online and in department stores. Shoppers and fashionables keep in mind what celebrities wear and if they look good in their red carpet creations. From dresses, to designer handbags and shoes, each and every aspect of a celebrity look is important. This year some of the greatest looks and styles include designer iPhone cases. Celebrities are already carrying intricately illustrated designer iPhone cases by PLIA Designs. We expect to see more cases from this fashion brand on the red carpet in coming months.
