Samsung have teamed up with fashion designer Alexander Wang to create the first print to be inspired by crowd-sourced images.

Using Samsung Galaxy Note II phones, the New York-based designer will work with images and patterns created by stylists, photographers, and friends.

The doodled images will be gathered on apps that are designed to “capture, create and share”.

Executive vice president of Samsung Mobile, Younghee Lee said: “Technology is becoming more deeply linked with the creative processes of fashion designers.


“As technology and fashion converge, we will continue to create products that inspire passion through innovation,”

The sketches and images will be brought together in one collective print that will be featured on a limited-edition bag to raise money for the charity Art Start, which uses arts to support the creative talents of at-risk youth.

Wang said: “This collaboration represents a new way that technology and style can come together.

“Through a concerted effort, I am happy to be a part of supporting such a great charity as Art Start that embraces creativity and art in a way that can change lives.”

The bags will be available to buy in the Summer.
