Previously released fashion iPhone apps

Shop View - London

Oxford Street in the heart of London is Europe's busiest shopping mile, and finding your way around all the stores and special offers might seem daunting to many. Enter Shop View: the $1.99 app gives you a 3D tour of the local shops plus links to their websites and Twitter feeds of special sales.

What's Your Fashion Style

For $0.99, this new application lets fashion fans take a quiz based on their average outfit choices in order to determine their personal style.

Fashion Followed sends you collages of new fashion items for daily outfit inspiration.

GQ

Just in time for men's fashion season, GQ magazine has something for the gents: with an app especially launched for its February issue, you'll get this month's feature on the most stylish men on the planet as well as a Victoria's Secret fashion shoot, a suit special, a guide how to survive Valentine's Day and much more for the price of $2.99.

Trendstop TrendTracker

This new app not only selects the season's trends for you but also gives you fashion events and venues around the globe.

The Fashion Handbook

Designed with the serious fashion fan in mind, the Fashion Handbook gives you explanations of key terms as well as fashion's role in the context of art, architecture, and entertainment. It explores the 'fast fashion' phenomenon, addresses do's and don'ts, and selects the rights styles for each body type. The serious approach, however, has a serious price too, compared to other apps: the guide sells for $9.99.

Inditex - Zara

Before the Spanish chain's online store goes live, Zara has released an iPhone app that is designed to facilitate your shopping through collection lookbooks, detailed pictures of the clothes and immediate access to its stock. Plus: the app alerts you of new arrivals.

Target

The US retailer's application is even more extensive than Zara's, featuring a store finder telling you exactly what is currently in stock at your nearest store, special offers, and even a gift finder as part of its offering. In addition, the app lets you comment and review items for other shoppers' reference.

The app will be free through the end of January.

Chicfeed

This app works like a Dstill (see below) for street style, bringing you updates from the most popular blogs, including the Sartorialist, Face Hunter, and Altamira.

Social Mall

Social Mall gives you the best local malls and corresponding special offers. Not sure if you should buy an item? Share it with your friends via the app and get their instant feedback. A movie or dinner after shopping? Send out a group invite to other iPhone users. US customers only.

Next

The British fashion label has launched its application that not only lets users shop online and browse the stock of hundreds of stores worldwide but also gives you styling ideas and the season's key trends for inspiration.
