Visual search to shop: gimmick or game changing? – Yahoo News

View photo This undated image provided by Amazon shows the company’s Firefly app. A key feature of Amazons NEW YORK (AP) Imagine using your phone to snap a photo of the cool pair of sunglasses your friend is wearing and instantly receiving a slew of information about the shades along with a link to order them. It’s a great idea but it doesn’t quite work. Though many companies are trying to make “visual search” a reality, this seemingly simple notion remains elusive. Take Amazon, which made visual search a key feature in its new Fire smartphone. The e-commerce company says the feature, known as Firefly, can recognize 100 million items. It’s similar to a Flow feature Amazon has on its apps for other phones.

Fashion Retailer Zara Pulls Kids Shirt Resembling Concentration Camp Uniform : The Two-Way : NPR

Zara.com hide caption itoggle caption Zara.com The clothing retail giant Zara is apologizing and has pulled a kids’ shirt from its stores after hearing complaints that it resembled the uniform worn by prisoners in Nazi concentration camps. In a tweet, Zara said the shirt was “inspired by the sheriff’s stars from the Classic Western films.” Reporting from Spain’s Canary Islands, Lauren Frayer tells our Newscast unit that this isn’t the first time the Spanish retailer has gotten into trouble. She filed this report: “The shirt in question is navy and white striped, with a big gold star on the chest. Zara sold it online in several countries, including Israel. “The company called it a ‘sheriff shirt’ for kids. But many shoppers thought it looked conspicuously like a World War II concentration camp outfit, and complained on Twitter and Facebook.

Abercrombie struggling to bring sexy back – Aug. 28, 2014

by Cinya Burton Today 2:30 PM PDT Loading… VOGUE/Patrick Demarchelier Five months after Kim Kardashian scored her first Vogue cover with husband Kanye West , Kendall Jenner has managed to nab a spot in the pages of the American fashion bible. Of course, it’s not a cover (no, that honor was given to Cara Delevingne , Karlie Kloss and Joan Smalls), but it is a major fashion spread in the September issueyou know, the publication’s biggest edition of the year. Also, it should be noted that the star has already landed next month’s cover for Teen Vogue. With her signature dark hair slicked back, Kendall gives her best fierce face while modeling head-to-toe Alexander Wang including a scarf and fanny pack (the retro accessory is making a comeback or haven’t you heard?). The spread was shot by Mario Testino, who partied with Kendall and her older sister Kim at a Vogue party in July.

Photographer Raj Shetye Receives Backlash Over Photo Series ‘glamorizing’ Rape

Raj Shetye, whose The Wrong Turn series imitates the 2012 gang rape and murder of a young woman on a bus, has defended his photos in an interview with The Huffington Post . He says that the purpose of the fashion shoot was to raise awareness about the issue of female safety in India. “It is not based on Nirbhaya, the Mumbai-based photographer told BuzzFeed . Shetye added that “This is in no way meant to glamorise the act, which was very bad. Its just a way of throwing light on it. He also clarified why the clothes worn by the models were made by high-end designers, whose names were unique prom dresses omitted on purpose. The message I would like to give is that it doesnt matter who the girl is, he said. It doesnt depend on which class she belonged in it can happen to anyone. We stay in a society where rich people roam in cars, and poor people who roam in public transport are in danger, he added.

Fashion Friday: Belk stops by the NBC 6 News Today – ArkLatexHomepage.com

Before he fired, he was armed with a high-powered weapon and was “in charge” of the situation, Nel said. Pistorius should not go free whether the court believes he thought there was an intruder behind the door or not, he said. Calling the Olympic sprinter an “appalling” witness, Nel said the evidence from the bullet holes in the toilet door suggests Pistorius had time to think and looked down the sights of the gun as he fired. Defense: Prosecution made numerous errors Defense attorney Barry Roux began his closing arguments by alleging the state made mistakes. He cited multiple instances of Nel calling Pistorius a liar, yet only providing only one example.
