It is easy to get caught in a fashion rut of just shopping at the same stores all the time. Or buying the least expensive option that appears in an online search. However, these shopping habits can lead to making purchases that do not align with your goals as a consumer. Shopping locally, supporting minority and women-owned brands, making eco-friendly product choices, these are all goals that many fashion and beauty consumers have, but it’s not always easy to find the products and styles you want that align with these important goals.
Various fashion apps let consumers save favorite outfits, but often the pieces featured in the images are not shoppable, increasing consumer frustration. It’s time for an elevated experience. Enter FashWire and GlossWire , two B2B2C technology apps leveraging social technologies and AI Technology.
