Fashion Desktop Design

iGoogle has teamed up with 70 artists to create new background themes for their personalized homepages. Oscar de la Renta, Tory Burch, Diane von Furstenberg, Dolce & Gabbana, Mark Ecko, and Nigo are among the fashion brands included. They aren't just ordinary background designs either: Dolce & Gabbana's trademark Animalier print shimmers with gold reflexes, lighting, and shading. During the day, the reflexes and texture sway left to right representing the sunrise and sunset. A private launch party was held at One Little West 12th Street, where the iGoogle themes were projected onto the buildings at the Gansevoort Street, Little West 12th, and Ninth Avenue intersection.
