Editor in Chief of US Vogue and the undeniable doyenne of the fashion industry Anna Wintour recently announced that ‘Geeks Can Be Chic’ in her acceptance speech The Webby Awards. Whether you’re a computer geek, a smarty pants geek or a book worm type geek, Westfield Hornsby want you to show off just how geeky you can take your fashion.
As technology increasingly becomes something we are reliant on, it’s hard not to embrace everything from a smart phone, iPad, netbooks, laptops, video cameras and DSLR’s. I’m guilty of owning all but two of those items because I have been a gadget and internet geek ever since I taught myself how to design and code websites more than a decade ago (though my skills these days barely scratch the surface of the internet). And secretly sometimes I would rather stay home playing with newly purchased toys than sipping champagne at a fashion or beauty event.
With the boon of geek-chic, it is no surprise that Apple – known for with their fashionable toys – is at the centre of it all. So with the opening of the new Apple store in Westfield Hornsby on September 24, 2011 at 10am, I have been asked to pop by and help promote Geek Chic in the newly refurbished shopping centre.
