Ever seen someone wearing something that you like and wondered where they bought it? Well, if you know them of course you can simply ask. However what happens if it’s a picture in a magazine or someone you just happen to spot in the street. It’s a very different story - you’ll probably never know. Well, until now that is... Our latest Startup of the Week is solving that very problem.
Snap Fashion is a visual search engine which lets you search for items of clothing simply through a photograph.
Using it could not be more straightforward. Simply launch the app on your phone, choose the product type that you’re looking for and then snap a pic. Snap Fashion will then search through its extensive database of retailers and brands to find that item or similar items. Within seconds you’ll have your results - indicating exactly where you can buy that item you’re coveting. You can save it, create a wishlist of your faves or even go straight through to the retailer and buy. If you’re a bit of a bargain hunter, you can use the app to alert you when your fave items drop in price! What’s not to love about that! Check out the short intro video that'll give you a little taster of what it's all about.
Whilst we love the high street here at Startacus, we know too that online retail and shopping is here to stay. And when there’s innovation and creativity involved too, well...quite frankly...we’re sold!
