How we added a digital experience to a fashion show

Isn’t it surprising that many fashion shows today don’t incorporate the ability for viewers to access information about the clothes they’re seeing on the catwalk, on the spot? There are apps that allow the audience to purchase items as the clothes are paraded down the catwalk on models, but they are far, few and far from cheap to pull off.

That’s why our idea for a fashion show that allows the audience to access brand and pricing information of the clothes LIVE during the show was very well received, when it was done cheap and chic for a fashion show event that we were involved in while we were in Singapore below (sorry we have to keep our formula secret!).

In short, what we achieved was to allow the audience to scan a QR code from a flyer placed on their seat, using their mobile phones, they were able to then download a companion lookbook to the fashion show, where the brands and prices of selected outfits were included. The addresses of the boutiques were also mentioned, so the audience could head straight for the stores to check out the clothes immediately.

The aim of such a digital lookbook is to bridge the gap between 2 thoughts in the head of the viewer: “Ooh I like that dress” and “I wonder how much it is”. In reality, unless the models on the catwalk also paraded the price tag, or there’s a voiceover over the PA system spelling out the prices (goodness, how tacky), there’s no classy way to convey pricing information during a fashion show.

Most retailers just hope and pray the fashion show audience converts into foot traffic into their stores. With our digital lookbook where pricing information is provided, people have one less query/doubt to address before they decide if they want to make a purchase or not, of something that they’ve just seen on the catwalk. That is one step in the conversion process of turning a passive fashion show spectator to an active shopper/buyer. Check out the lookbook below and then imagine yourself at the fashion show. We’re almost sure you’ll feel the urge to shop, especially when it’s DKNY, Paule Ka and Vivienne Westwood.

  1. I am a rputine viewers of your online forum blog posts, and I was asking yourself if you had the moment to take a look at a write-up that may fit your neighborhood news, tales of passion part.

    I am a regional artist, Weeb and Graphic Designer based
    in Kinng Scrub, who hhas been surprised at the amount of artists living in the Norh Western Brisbane suburbs.
    Just what I als found was a major absence of online visibilkity among the artists.
    As a repercussion, if you are not in the art circles and groups, yyou
    do not know concerning these experienced creative people.

    I also uncovered that there was a fantastic need amongst the
    majority of artists to put their art work online but also forr concern, llack of experience or economic reasons they have actually refrained so.
    To address these restraints, I have mde the website TheOriginals, which is a level playing fields, and artists support
    system that offers artists from FREE Art Directory listings to affordable Full Persona Online Galleries for artists in the Moreton Bay area.

    It is not simply someone else internet site.
    TheOriginals sole concentration is the artists represented, no payment is taken, aand the
    artists are marketsd around the board via the website, Facebook, twitter, print media etc.

    The short article I recommend, is an encouraement
    for artists to take that step, and browse the web:
    I am a grinner. I am an enthusiast. I am an artist on the run.
    Whether you produce art oor selol art, it’s a good time to run your business online.

    Never prior to have we had accessibility to such a big audience and collective of
    talented artists.
    the world is your market .(As New york city Times puts it)
    Moreton Bay is lucky sufficient to have wonderful community art places
    such as, The Dayboro Art Gallery, Samford’s Slab Hut, Caboolture’s Center and the Bribie Islands area
    Arts Centre displaying our artwork. Regrettably, only a choice
    of art could be shown. Other than that, your audience is active with work, household activity and
    sporting activities during the time your arrt is viewable.

    If you are anything likke me, you could possibly fill aan entire gallery
    with your job alone and desire your audience watch it when they intend to
    view it, the only means for me waas tto go online.
    The very first time I sold one of my own artworks online was
    one of the most extremely awesome feeling ever before.
    To cover it off, it was likewise my initial try at maketing art online back in 2002.

    The online art sales market hhas actually blown up.
    You should not miss out on out on this sense off really worth in just what yyou do that
    comes from others valuing it as well. Somebodyy you have actuallyy nsver met,
    never ever become aware of you, and never ever viewed your artwork
    just before and likjing it for just what it is. This is the energy
    of thhe web, empowerment to validate your art presence to you,
    your area and the world. So just what do you think will occur if
    the right people being familiar with you, and your job? This is just what theOriginals.net.
