September iPad Issue

The fashion industry is constantly chang-from
ing and being approached with new andd
innovative ideas. Coming this September
Modeling International Magazine will be migrat-
ing over to a whole new platform. This exciting
change will provide a new highly interactive view-
ing experience.
With the advent of the iPad and other E-readers,
magazines will never be the same. With over 3
million iPad’s sold in the first three months, this
new revolution, has caught on and now iPads are
appearing in Colleges and Universities all over the
world.

denisbul
This new way to read publications will intrigue our
readers to keep flipping though. The new capabili-
ties will provide: 360 imagery, ability to change
photos, watch videos, and even buy clothing all at
the touch of their finger. The best part about the
iPad is that it’s not that expensive and could easily
be purchased for around $500.
We are working around the clock to produce a state
of the art iPad application that will showcase the
best models, photographers and even top interna-
tional clothing designers. Until then...see you in
September!
