This Mobile Game for Fashionistas Attracts 8 Million Players in 5 Months

An engaging social game for women “Pocket Styler” attracts 2M downloads in launch month alone, collaborates with designers to create trendy in-game content, and yet collaborate with designer brands as well.

Every week, nearly half a million new players join Pocket Styler – a new fashion game for mobile devices that focuses on dressing up the avatar for different occasions, where created looks are being rated by the community of users. The creators attribute the cause of the growing popularity of the game to its’ non-urgent nature, where a player can relax and simply enjoy the process, enabling the focus on creativity – over 147 million different outfit looks have already been created by the game users.

The action of Pocket Styler takes place in New York, one of the global fashion meccas. The player arrives at the Big Apple, taking a chance to make it big by attending various social events and exploring their dress code requirements. After carefully curating their look, the players evaluate other players’ styles and are appraised by them in turn, helping develop style and design sensibility, while exploring their sense of style virtually.

“Unlike most casual games, Pocket Styler takes it slow,” says Nordcurrent’s Game Designer Povilas Katkevičius. “Players are in no rush as they take their time to warm up their imagination, find a door to freedom, and express themselves freely. While the most competitive players can focus on quality and strive for perfection in each detail, others can explore current trends and find inspiration for their real-life wardrobe.”

With predecessors such as Cooking Fever (over 400 million downloads), Sniper Arena (70 million) and Murder in the Alps (20 million), Pocket Styler is Nordcurrent’s most recent release. “Our goal was to create an engaging social game for women,” claims Victoria Trofimova, the CEO of Nordcurrent. “As the audience of women playing mobile games is growing globally, we felt a need to respond to this tendency.”

When Pocket Styler launched in May, the game obtained 2 million users in the first month and increased four-fold in 5 months. As nearly half a million players join the style platform every week, its’ social media community also continues to grow exponentially.

The game is curated by fashion professionals and a team of experienced stylists, and will very soon open to collaborations with designer brands worldwide. Pocket Styler will enable their creations to appear in digital form, while the players will be able to dress their models in real-life designer clothing and accessories. Now, all the clothing is custom-made for the platform, with designers and game developers working side by side to develop custom looks. In addition to bi-weekly content expansions, the company has plans to expand localisations to Asia primarily Japan and South Korea as well as implement more socializing elements, such as Style houses, where players would collaborate to achieve cooperative goals, exchange items, and compete among other groups.

Focusing on freemium and casual games, the company created over 50 games since 2002, attracting more than half billion players  worldwide.

Status Symbols… Does Wearing A Rolex Make You Popular?

They say, fashion changes; trends wither but luxury and style last forever. In the case of luxury Rolex watches, this saying stands to be true. Ever since 1910, when the luxury watch company Rolex got a Swiss certification for maintaining its distinctive quality and make, the brand has not looked back. Let it be Gen X or the millennials or Gen Z; when it comes to owning a Rolex watch, the opinions are unanimous. Everyone wants one!

Rolex is literally the fashion watch goal even in this age and era and owning one means you are loaded! Here are some reasons for its massive popularity. Let’s get into it.

#1 A Rolex Watch Is An Acquired Taste

Unlike fast-fashion accessories and brands that mushroom every five or six years out of nowhere with their generic styles and fits to appeal to a crowd, Rolex targets a truly specific audience. Its users and clientele are premium and it’s not made to appeal to the masses. This is one of the reasons you don’t see it floating everywhere. It’s an acquired taste and that just adds to its charm.

#2 A Touch of Luxury

Rolex watches are specifically designed and manufactured for men and women who have a knack for luxury and indulgence. The extravagant designs are part of the appeal and experience of owning a donning a Rolex. Wrapping it around your wrist would oomph up your confidence and make you feel pampered and good about yourself. There’s a reason why Rolex is simply a class apart!

#3 A Rolex Watch is the Stuff Family Heirlooms are made of!

Now that’s not a shocker! When grandmas pass on their princess cut diamond rings; luxury gemstone clustered tiaras and vintage silk gowns to their upcoming generation of young women, a Rolex watch is a prized possession that could be passed on to the new generation of the fine young men of the family. The brand is known to make watches with a lifetime warranty and there are families who cherish these as their prized possessions.

#4 The Social Factor

Rolex watches have been a cult classic! From the Royal family to A-list Hollywood celebrities and stars – Rolex watches have been adorned, cherished, and endorsed by countless famous people. This just serves as the cherry on the top to add more to their popularity.

The Amazfit GTR 3 and GTS 3 series are perfect for matching with formal, leisure, and sports outfits and activities. Easy-to-use, the smartwatches feature comprehensive health and fitness monitoring and ultra-long battery life, powered by the intuitive Zepp OS.

The user can also test four health metrics in just one tap thanks to the built-in 6PD (photodiodes) BioTracker™ PPG 3.0, which measures four health metrics (heart rate, blood-oxygen, stress level and breathing rate) in as little as 45 seconds.

How To Dress Up Jeans: 5 Simple Ways To Make Your Denim Stand Out

 

You couldn’t agree more that the most versatile bottom-buddies that are allowed to hug are legs are jeans. Okay, there might not be such a word as “Bottom-buddy” but it fits right? As long as it fits, there is always a place for it under the sun,

Like Jeans!

As long as it fits and as long as we can carry some style out of our pants then there would always be some new styles to cover and explore. Here are 5 new ways to make sure you stand out when wearing jeans!

  1. Turtleneck Sweater + Paper Bag Jeans

Turtleneck sweaters are undoubtedly hot, not just literally but also in the fashion sense. Balancing the energy, turtleneck sweaters can be best friends with Paper Bag jeans to balance the tight-yet-comfy feels your top has and the flowy-yet-intact sensation your Paper Bag jeans provide. Striped turtleneck sweaters look sexier when tucked inside this type of jeans. Also have this combo partnered with your best heels or maybe a complementing hat!

  1. Skinny Jeans + Light-Colored Shoes + Off-The-Shoulder Top

Not that I am a fan of the flowy effect but you should check this style out if you haven’t yet. Skinny Jeans give more emphasis to your legs and provides a little bit of a slimming effect while the off-the-shoulder top exposes your upper sexiness to a higher level. The light-colored shoes in this combination balances your style in between looking hot and being cool. You may add statement earrings and a matchy-matchy necklace as well. Sweet!

  1. Straight Jeans + Striped Ruffled Cropped-top blouse.

A new way to wear the old-fashioned-yet-unshaken Straight Jeans is to wear them with a cropped-top blouse, which would be better with stripes. It might be hard to imagine but it works! No cropped-top blouse but have a normal blouse at home? Easy, a pair of scissors or shears can be your best friend! Just a little time to spend with manual tailoring and you’re all set! Flats would also complement the Straight Jeans to give it a casual and more dignified look.

  1. Ripped Skinny Jeans + Plain white Tee + Blazer + Sandals

It’s such a great year for ripped jeans and sandals, isn’t it? Why not spice it up with a plain white tee and a blazer? I mean, come on! Imagine the fierce aura, girl! Plain tees give out the neutral vibes while a blazer would give the tee a respectable-looking companion. The combination of the tops you wear would balance the wild taste of the Ripped Skinny jeans and the sandals would keep you looking approachable while staying elegant. Awesome! Slay more!

  1. Cropped Jeans + Graphic Tee + White Sneakers

Want to try out a fun-looking getup? Then this style might work great for you! Graphic Tees shows a lot more about yourself alongside statement shirts which would look awesome with cropped jeans too when paired with the right footwear. White graphic shirts and Black graphic shirts would both look absolutely stunning with white shoes, and the cropped jeans’ role is to make sure your footwear is emphasized. Make sure to invest in really good-looking shoes that do not necessarily have to be expensive, to show a playful style.

Once again, as long as it fits and as long as we can carry some style out of our pants then there would always be some new styles to cover and explore. Stay slayin’ slayer girl!

In Photos: Here’s Looking Back At The 2021 Australian Multicultural Fashion Festival

The (AMFF) Australian Multicultural Fashion Festival brought together the modelling and fashion industry last March 2021 at the luxurious PIA Grand Auditorium. The magnitude of originality and fashion design excellence at this event definitely stayed with us.

Everyone walked away from the show with a new respect for the diverse cultures and their innovative designers.

Beauty Industry’s New Frontier: How Technology Is Transforming The Beauty Industry Into A Virtual World

Digitally generated grey cubes floating against female designer with tape measure using virtual reality headset

The tech industry shows never-ending growth. Although it’s not a new concept, virtual or augmented reality has truly reached a peak in the last couple of years. It’s changing the way people interact with not only one another but the world. Previously having its main legs in the gaming world, it’s interesting to see that VR – technology is making its way into our everyday life and surprisingly, the beauty industry has hopped on this trend as well. With a focus on the beauty industry, we’ve looked at 5 reasons why the future of it is in a virtual world and discuss them below.

  1. One Location, Many Advisors

Millennials and Gen-Z are here to stay. They make up the population of the coming years and as the target audience, it has been established that they prefer taking beauty advice from their favourite socialites rather than in-store personnel. This not only gives them access to the advice they like even though they’re thousands of miles away from the advisor, but it also allows them to get advice on one product from multiple sources while never leaving the comfort of their home.

  1. Unrealistic Standards

With the standards already set, there’s no surprise that people who aren’t able to meet them will look for the easiest solution. Unless you’re a professional make-up artist, the chances of you achieving the picture-perfect look you’re going for are minimal. With so many app-based filters already available, most people simply turn to them to achieve whichever outcome it is they desire. The beauty industry isn’t a late sleeper and immediately jumped on this train to accommodate those who don’t know how to apply make-up. The ability to enhance your appearance on social media without needing any skills is very appealing, and the beauty industry keeps developing to keep up with this exciting trend.

  1. Experimentation is Fun

Another reason why the future of the beauty industry is leaning towards more advanced virtual reality experiences is because people like to experiment. Being able to try on different products without the hassle of actually applying them on and taking them off, keeps the process fun and people engaging.

  1. The “Try Before you Buy” Culture is Growing Rapidly

This mantra has become very popular amongst Millennials and Gen Z. Not being able to try something before purchasing it, makes many leave the store empty-handed.  Some beauty products can’t be made available as testers, not to even mention that tester products aren’t always in stock. A virtual beauty experience helps customers try out all available products, recreate complete looks, and order whatever product it is they like from an alternative store if one close to them doesn’t have stock. Keeping up with this demand is only possible in a virtual world.

  1. Virtual Reality is the Future

Virtual Reality is undoubtingly the future. The best reason to believe that the beauty industry will establish a future in a virtual world is simply because they’re adapting to changing times.

Although going to the store and interacting with another human being is an experience that is hard to beat, more people are leaning towards a world where they can be whoever they want to be without even getting out of bed. A virtual world offers them this opportunity and it’s only wise for the beauty industry to tag along.

The (AMFA) Australian Modelling & Fashion Awards brought together the modelling and fashion industry last December 2020 at the luxurious Four Seasons Hotel. The magnitude of originality and fashion design excellence at this event definitely stayed with us. Everyone walked away from the show with a new respect for the diverse cultures and their innovative designers. Although the awarding session by various industry heavyweights was the main event; each of the remaining highlights was riveting to partake in and further enhanced the AMFA experience. Here’s an exclusive look at the Pacific International Runway collection by Lepou, Kovie Richardson, and Ikii Haangana at the 2020 Australian Modelling and Fashion Awards.

Sassy & Co Magazine’s Top 12 Fashion Influencers Of The Year

Introducing Sassy & Co Magazine’s top fashion influencers to follow in 2021.

These influential influencers have shown us how to transform their sizable social media following into successful careers and breaking it in the fashion industry – simply by following their passion and working extensively on their personal branding.

Roxette Arisa

Beauty and fashion expert, wildly successful Japanese American YouTube / Social Media guru Roxette Arisa is making a name for herself in the skincare, beauty, and fashion space with over 75 MILLION views and 1.2 MILLION subs on YouTube alone. Whether she is giving tips on how to perfect your makeup for mask-wearing, providing how-to-tips for taking that lust-worthy passport photo, comparing designer and drugstore brands with a split face tutorial, or giving how-to-style basics by using clothes you already have in your closet, Arisa is a quickly rising star who is highly respected for her expertise in the beauty and fashion world.

Arisa’s rise in the beauty and fashion world is quite different from her contemporaries. Growing up in Culver City, California she always knew from a young age what she wanted to be: an Olympic figure skating medalist. She began skating at the age of 4, training and practicing to perfection. By the age of 15, she moved to Detroit where she was selected for the Jr. National Team as part of a duo ice dancing partnership. Arisa then moved to Canada, where she was being groomed to compete internationally for Canada, and in 2016, at 17 years old, she and her partner placed Silver at sectionals solidifying her stance as a competitor. But soon after, her world was rocked when her partner suddenly retired, and in 2017 she found her dreams of competing in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeong Chang all but a fleeting dream. The reality was that it would be near impossible to find a new skilled partner in time. But Arisa had found another passion.

Since a young age, she had worn makeup for skating competitions and as she got older, she realized that she had found an appreciation for applying and learning new makeup techniques. She often trained in skating for 8+ hours a day, but at night she would spend her time watching makeup tutorials online and she decided to create a YouTube page herself. To her, makeup was something that always gave her confidence and she wanted to share her advice with others. Before long, her following and views began skyrocketing and she realized that when one door closes another one opens. She decided to retire from skating and instead focus on her new passion – the beauty and fashion world. She packed up her bags and moved back home to Los Angeles. Around this time, brands began to take notice. In only a couple of years, Arisa has quickly become a favorite for beauty and fashion brands alike, and has become a beauty ambassador to Smashbox, e.l.f., partnered with brands like Revolve, Olay, Murad, NARS, Maybelline, MAC, Instagram, Clarisonic, Neutrogena, Kate Somerville, CeraVe, IPSY, L’Oreal, Lorac and created her own collections for Milani and SIGMA to name a few.

Natalija Ugrina

Natalija Ugrina is a stunning actress and fashion model who is currently based in Los Angeles, California. She was originally born in Croatia and was raised by her mother, Ketrin Buljević, who’s a writer and a poet. She kickstarted her modeling career at the age of 16 by joining Elite Model Management which enabled her to work with various fashion designers and appear in notable publications such as Vogue Italia, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar as well as grace high-profile fashion shows from all over the world. Eventually, she decided to shift gears and pursue a career in acting. She moved to Los Angeles to study acting at Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute which led to numerous acting gigs. Some of her film credit includes the College Ball movie, Fight of Fury, and A Life Well Lived. She has also appeared in music videos such as 5 Seconds of Summer’s “She Looks So Perfect” which garnered over 300 million views as well as Action Bronson’s music video for “Baby Blue” featuring Chance the Rapper. She currently resides in Los Angeles, California, where she constantly works tirelessly to build her career.

Jarry Lee

Jarry Lee is a successful self-made entrepreneur and influencer who changed careers from journalism to entertainment and created a highly lucrative social media business empire for herself. Jarry has a following of over 750,000+ across her verified social media channels and appeared as herself on the Netflix show Dating Around (season 1), and in commercials for AT&T, Dr. Brandt Skincare, and various L’Oréal brands. As a model and actor, she has worked with Maybelline, Lancôme, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, Revlon, Apple, Google, Ben & Jerry’s, Nike, and other companies.

She has been featured in VOGUE Italia, POPSUGAR, Mic, Elite Daily, NY Daily News, AM New York, Authority Magazine, The New York Times, Cliché Magazine, Thrive Global, TMS, MESS Magazine, MOVER Magazine, and many other publications.

Radmila Lolly

Radmila Lolly is an acclaimed classical singer as well as a high fashion designer. Over the past few months, her singing career has skyrocketed when she reached the top 25 of the Billboard Dance Chart with her single ‘U R Moving Me’ which also featured Dani Hagan.

Radmila presented her last album “Wonderland” at the famous Carnegie Hall. She decided to combine her talents as a singer and a designer and presented her couture collection during her concert while putting up an unforgettable show.

This inspirational woman is the sole designer of the couture fashion house Eltara Casata @eltaracasata. The largest influence on her designs is her musical exploits. For Lolly, her two artistic mediums inspire and feed off each other; the textures of her designs are innately linked to the textures of her music.

Her fashion collection has been featured at Barneys Madison Avenue Trunk Show, alongside designers such as Zac Posen, Naeem Khan, J. Mendel, as well as at the Daytime Emmy’s Ceremony, and many more. It has also been featured by Vogue Italia, and Harper’s Baazar, among others. Radmila Lolly has a huge number of requests from celebrities to wear her gowns for award ceremonies or red carpet events. In fact, we have seen several artists wearing Radmila Lolly’s dresses, such as Gayle King, Bebe Rexha, Mya, Miss Universe 2018, Miss USA 2018, Miss USA 2017, to name a few.

Kaitlin Marianelli

Kaitlin Marianelli may look stunning on the outside – but she also has brains to match her beautiful face and toned body. Her field of study is in fact Nanomaterials Engineering, and she eventually wants to work in fields such as tech, robotics, or aerospace. She was initially discovered by her agency via Instagram while she was doing her Master’s degree. She immediately signed with them after graduating and for the next 2 years after that, she lived in Asia, getting signed with other agencies in Hong Kong and Japan.

Lydia Bielen

Lydia Bielen is a stunning model who hails from Georgia, USA. She grew up in a small town with her mother, her 2 sisters, and her grandparents. She was a teenager waitressing at a restaurant in her home town when she was first discovered. An agent came in to eat, saw her, gave her a business card, and said to call them and she was assured that she would never work in a restaurant again – the rest you can say is history.

Evelyn Casandra Ellis

Evelyn Casandra Ellis is currently represented by Royalle Modelling and she has been modelling for 3 years now. She enjoys every shoot equally so it’s hard for her to pick just 1 modelling job that really stands out for her. However, she loves animals so it would have to be when there was a snake on set for a QP magazine shoot. She also feels that the animal that describes her best would have to be a Honey Badger because it’s such a cute, sweet, innocent-looking animal but in reality an actual badass. Small but strong!

Hanli Hoefer

Hanli Hoefer started her career in modeling working part-time for small business owners and blog shops. Eventually, she reached out to her mother agency Avenue Management as she believed that she could model full time and she wanted to learn more about the fashion industry. After 2 years of successfully modeling fulltime, she auditioned for MTV Asia, she won the part as a presenter, and the rest you can say is history.

Vindy Krejčí

Vindy Krejčí initially never had any plans of becoming a model, but when opportunity knocked on her door – she decided to take a chance, and now she couldn’t be happier with her decision. Vindy is a half Vietnamese and half Czech model who’s currently based in the Czech Republic. She was fifteen when she appeared in her first fashion show and she loved the experience so much that she went on to appear in more fashion shows. Besides modeling, Vindy has also done quite well in the pageant world, she won the title Miss Karkulka Mácha in 2015, she placed 3rd runner up in Miss Caddy 2014 pageant and she also placed top 10 in the national beauty pageant, Miss Czech Republic.

Valeria Sizova

Valeria Sizova’s appeal is definitely in her stunning features and smoking hot body. She’s a model, dancer and a choreographer who’s based in Sydney, Australia and in fact, she recently opened her own dance and entertainment company called ICrave Dance & Entertainment. She has placed in a number of high profile modeling competitions such as Miss Supercars, Maxim’s Swimwear Model of the Year competition or the World Miss All Nations and is currently the reigning Miss Multiverse Russia.

Stephanie Hunt

Being a model can be difficult, often requiring people to make tough sacrifices. However, it can also prove to be a highly rewarding experience. For Stephanie Hunt, modeling has allowed her to travel around the world, get involved with high profile names such as Guess, Revlon, designer Melba Aros, Lady Jayne, Toscow Jewelery, celebrity hairstylist, David Babaii and magazines such as Camilla, RUSSH, Cosmopolitan, and FTV as well as meet a lot of interesting new people.

Marona Tanner

It was her family’s move to Australia that kickstarted Marona Tanner’s successful modeling career. Her stunning beauty, a result of her Egyptian heritage, drew the admiration of anyone she came across with and for good reason. Besides being a fulltime model and a high-profile Instagram star with nearly half a million followers, Marona also possesses an acting degree, she’s a sculptor and animator, as well as an accomplished belly dancer – so it’s safe to say that Marona is a force to be reckoned with in the entertainment industry.
