See what happens when Microsoft & Bloomingdale’s got together at New York Fashion week to explore the intersection of fashion and technology with a paper dress that includes an embedded keyboard
If you are out on the town in New York City tonight (Thursday, September 8 ) for FNO, give your high heels a break by
stopping by the Lenovo Connections Lounge — located at Saks Fifth Avenue on the 4th floor — to grab a seat on our plush white couches and check out our brand new, powerful and incredibly chic IdeaPad U300s Ultrabook™, which was just unveiled last week.
Starting at 6:00 p.m. ET, FNO enthusiasts, fashion-minded techies, style mavens and more are invited to our stylish tech lounge, where they can use the U300s laptops on display to blog, tweet, update Facebook or even shop online for more FNO deals.
But here’s the best part: attendees can also enter to win one of five U300s Ultrabooks, which we’ll be giving away throughout the night.
We’ll also be showcasing one-of-a-kind laptop sleeves designed for the IdeaPad U300s, created by young Chinese contemporary artist, Gao Yu, and haute couture fashion designer and model, Mary Ma.
Here’s a sneak peek of the Lenovo Lounge. Hope to see you there!

Clinique continues its tradition by pioneering the connection between dermatology and cosmetics through a custom-fit beauty experience. It becomes the first cosmetics brand to use the Apple iPad® in-store as part of a state-of-the-art, self-guided skin care diagnostic tool being rolled out this month at select counters nationwide
Using software exclusive to Clinique on the Apple iPad at Clinique counters, consumers identify their skin care concerns and receive personalized recommendations using a 90-second computer-guided skin care analysis. The diagnostic tool processes over 180,000 product combinations that precisely match each consumer’s personal needs. At the end of the intuitive analysis, consumers receive a printout or email with a list of their custom-fit product recommendations.
Just as how Louis Vuitton was the first luxury label to debut an Apple iPod case back in the day, the French leathergoods and ready-to-wear house has rolled out a special case designed for the iPad. While it’s almost the price of the iPad itself, for those who work in the fashion or entertainment industries, it’s a small price to pay for a stylish yet durable cover.
