I run the fashion & lifestyle forum fashionfwd.de where users discuss latest fashion trends, specific brands (like Hollister, Abercrombie & Fitch, American Eagle, etc.). I started the forum in 2004 and recently made a major update to a modified Xenfocus Executive skin. I like the Xenfocus themes a lot - with the Executive theme they built a lean and well designed masterpiece. In the raw format it looks a bit too boring for a fashion & lifestyle forum where users also value the look & feel related to that topic. So I narrowed the forum a bit and added a black & white fashion-related background photo - and my users love it. What do you think?
