In the Spring of 2009 Elie Tahari contracted me to make an app to show off their Fall clothing line. It was my first experience working for a big company and all that comes with it – like learning to invoice properly.
One development challenge involved finding a clever way to preload and cache the images – scrolling through them normally resulted in a little pause each time the next image loaded. We ended up making 3 Elie Tahari Runway Show apps, Fall 2009, Spring 2010 & Fall 2010.
Funny note: A scope-change sent us over-budget and Elie Tahari paid me the difference in clothes. I like to think that the few good shirts I ended up with made the difference in future meetings.
