The new mobile app DesignLens from Empli, released this week, allows designers and other industry creatives to quickly turn images into patterns and prints on more than 140 fashion and lifestyle products, and share them with others.
“I had had one too many times sketching out an idea on the back of a napkin with eyeliner because inspiration struck, and I thought, ‘Wow, there must be a better way to do this,’” says DesignLens creator and Empli founder Austin Metka, 32, a fashion and textile designer and PVH Corp. alum who most recently designed ties for Michael by Michael Kors.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
