Hi! My name is Ally Gillis, and I’m currently a senior at Fordham University majoring in New Media & Digital Design.
This project is the result of my senior capstone project. With this project, I sought to focus on my interests as well as explore programs that I’ve never used before.
With a concentration of E-Commerce, I am interested in the business side of creative fields like fashion, beauty, and lifestyle. Having worked in the fashion industry (and with hopes of landing a job within it upon gradation!), I have been tasked with assembling trend reports across all brands for every season. Through experience, this has been a very time-consuming and tedious project, SO I created wikiFASHION to both help make my life easier and help make the lives easier of other interns in the fashion industry. Not only that, but I also aimed to make wikiFASHION helpful for those who don’t work in the fashion industry, those who are simply interested in keeping up with fashion trends.
I wanted to take this opportunity (my last opportunity as an undergrad student!) to learn various programs within the New Media & Digital Design field. To create this prototype, I used a combination of Photoshop and InVision, both programs that I have never used before.
I ran into a lot of road blocks in the process, but I’m proud of the final product. Hope you enjoy!
