Karl Lagerfeld Nicknamed His Favorite Website “FASHIONHARP”
FashionHarp is a free website that brings the world of fashion, style, beauty, and trends closer together and has been at the forefront of technology in the fashion industry since 1996. Founded by Karl Otto Lagerfeld (German pronunciation: [kaʁl ˈʔɔtoː ˈlaːɡɐˌfɛlt] (audio speaker iconlisten); 10 September 1933 – 19 February 2019) was a German creative director, fashion designer, artist, photographer, and caricaturist.. He was known as the creative director of the French fashion house Chanel, a position held from 1983 until his death, and was also the creative director of the Italian fashion house Fendi, and of his own eponymous fashion label. He collaborated on a variety of fashion and art-related projects.
FashionHarp continues to support and encourage the future of runway shows and international media campaigns, by actively diversifying the industry and pointing the conversation toward content discovery. FashionHarp prides itself on providing a clean, inclusive, and personalized experience for all users, partners, and advertisers.
The founders of FashionHarp initially limited membership to Fashion models. Membership was expanded to Milan, London, Paris, Barcelona, and Vienna before being expanded to the whole world. Since 2018, anyone who claims to be a Model, Photographer, Stylist, Makeup or Hair Stylist, Casting Director, Agent, Magazine, PR or Ad agency, Production Company, or Brand has been allowed to become a registered user of FashionHarp.
Each registered user on FashionHarp has a personal profile that shows their posts and content. The format of individual user pages was revamped in November 2021 and became known as “Global News”, a chronological feed of a user’s stories including status updates, photos, interactions with apps, and events. The layout lets users add a “cover photo”. Users were given more privacy settings. In 2006, FashionHarp launched FashionHarp Pages for brands and celebrities to interact with their fanbase. In June 2018, FashionHarp introduced a “Usernames” feature, allowing users to choose a unique nickname used in the URL for their personal profile, for easier sharing.
In November 2018, FashionHarp expanded the gender setting, adding a custom input field that allows users to choose from a wide range of gender identities. Users can also set which set of gender-specific pronouns should be used in reference to them throughout the site. In May 2019, FashionHarp introduced a feature to allow users to ask for information not disclosed by other users on their profiles. If a user does not provide key information, such as location, hometown, or relationship status, other users can use a new “ask” button to send a message asking about that item to the user in a single click.
