Everyone likes to be different. We would all like our apparel to reflect our own personal style. If you don’t have any experience in design or fashion, you may have to depend on designers to create your look.  However custom apparel is becoming more and more popular with the advent of customizing applications like the one used by Nike and many other companies online.

NikeID lets you be unique by allowing you to custom design your own sneakers using an online template. It’s simple, and doesn’t involve any complicated tricks. First, visit www.Nike.com/ID and choose from the categories listed at the top of the page.

I chose to browse the men’s running sneakers section.  Continue and pick the basic design for your sneaker, you can change the colors later.

After you’ve picked out your sneaker, you can start mixing and matching the colors or you can also just give yourself a blank slate to work with, like I’ve done below.

From then on pick your colors until you’re satisfied.

You can still benefit from a Nike sneaker with a superior design, but you can add your own personal touch by trying out the custom sneaker design application available online. Explore and see how many customisation programmes you can find online, then share the love and leave us a comment below!

 

Art in the City

Window displays spread holiday spirit and cheer

Spending the holidays in New York City is magical. There is the Rockefeller Christmas tree, the Thanksgiving parade, ice skating rinks, and the amazing windows displays from stores all over the city. New York has some of the most beautiful and artistic window displays in the United States.

We can always count on Macy’s to deliver an amazing window scene. In fact, the department store can be credited with birthing the amazing holiday window display tradition.

On 34th street there’s the classic Miracle on 34th Street display and on Herald square, you can catch the retelling of Virginia Hamilton’s famous 19th century letter to The Sun newspaper, Yes Virginia There is a Santa Claus! Designer Paul Olszewski says about his creation “I always push technology, but I also wanted to combine an artistry with it, too.”

The Bergdorf Goodman display on 5th Ave and 58th street is simply stunning. The windows tell the tales of traveller’s unique and fantastical keepsakes. It has a classic vintage feel and does not showcase the traditional Santa Claus; however its artistic take on the holidays is certainly a present for the eye.

This year, the winner of the “Display and Design Ideas” magazine “Winning Windows” Manhattan competition is Anthropologie’s Rockefeller Center store. Anthropologie is known for its artistic design and ergonomic structure. Their window display is classically beautiful and artistic.

New York City is the perfect place to enjoy the holidays; if you are in the city you can enjoy a Christmas Eve stroll.  When the stores are closed and the streets are quiet the scenery will be sure to put you in the holiday spirit and spread some classic New York cheer.
