£Excellent DOE

Our client allows users to try clothes online by entering three simple measurements to create their 3D online body model. For online shoppers, this increases their confidence to buy, as well as allowing them to experiment with new styles. For brands, it increases engagement, overall net sales and reduces return rates. Brands are finding new ways to use our client’s collective data in understanding the role of body shape in fashion, which in turn helps them design clothes better, make their supply chain more efficient, and help their customers find and buy clothes they’ll love and keep.
