NY fashion designer Alexander Wang is partnering with Samsung to use fashion as an advertising tool for technology. Wang will design a print modeled after photographs, doodles, and sketches sent in via Samsung Galaxy Note II smart phones.  The contributions will inspire unique bags, proceeds from which will go to a NY children’s art charity.

For Wang,  this partnership represents new ways that technology and style can come together. Samsung said that they hope this collaboration will deliver the message that “technology empowers creativity.” He said he enjoys the ability to sketch his inspirations, wherever he is using his smartphone.
