As fashion is not solely based on what one wears but also what one uses, Coast by Opera is enabling its users to extend their fashion sense to their online world.

Coast by Opera is a tailor-made browser for the iPad that was launched in September this year. To fill the vacant space of Coast due to its minimalist design, Opera has partnered with #DigitalFashionWeek Singapore 2013 to leverage the creativity of fashion designers.

Under the partnership, eight Singapore-based fashion designers participating in the #DigitalFashionWeek Singapore have created custom wallpapers for the browser, based on their Spring/Summer 2014 collections. The fashion designers are under the labels of L"ILE AUX ASHBY, ZENCHI, 72 Smalldive, Cosset, Kae Hana, Lion Earl, Mandy Wu, and MASH-UP.

Charina Widjaja, project director of #DigitalFashionWeek Singapore, said the designer wallpapers aim to add some style into the users' everyday hunt for inspiration. "Fashion is not only on what you wear but also on what you use, and we spend so much time online looking for inspiration and ideas that our browsers should also make a style statement."

The designer wallpapers are now exclusively available for Coast users at http://coastbyopera.com/digitalfashionweek .
