Quiz Customers Queuing To Get In New Virtual Fitting Room

A new virtual fitting room, designed to let online shoppers using the website of fashion retailer Quiz see how they might look in their chosen outfit, has gone down a storm with customers.

The UK-based women’s clothing specialist unveiled the feature at the end of 2011, following a major makeover of its website.

By clicking on the ‘fitting room’ tab of Quiz’s website, users can take control of a 3D avatar which they are able to alter to reflect their own body. Height, weight, bra size, waist and hip measurements can all be altered, along with hair colour, to make the virtual model as realistic as possible. Once a customer has created their model, they can select their chosen items of clothing from the site and build up an outfit, using everything from evening dresses and maxi dresses to jewellery and footwear.

When the user has come up with their very own classic outfit, there is no need to keep it a secret. Instead, they can print out the image to show to friends, or share it over the internet using Facebook and Twitter.

Haroun Saleemi – E-commerce Manager at Quiz said: “The idea behind the virtual fitting room was to take our online shopping experience a step further, and make it easier than ever for women to get a feel for the huge range of dresses, footwear and accessories that we have available online.

“One of the comments we kept hearing from customers was about how much of a difference it would make to be able to get more of an idea how an item of clothing would actually look. From the feedback we’ve received so far, the virtual fitting room has made that a reality and customers are really making the most of it.”

Additional changes to the website include a new sleek design, along with an updated navigation system to make getting around the site quicker and easier. Information on store availability has also been added, so shoppers who want to try Quiz’s clothes on for real can make sure their items are in stock at their local outlet.

Spring Summer 2012 Collection at Missguided

Missguided.co.uk is your ultimate online fix when it comes to affordable fashion and the SS12 season is shaping up to be the most exciting one yet! Indulge in the latest trends with Missguided’s range of exciting new-in styles brought to you the second the trends hit. Choose from a range of party dresses, tops, jeans, shorts, skirts, tights and not to mention that all important footwear. With exciting prints, sophisticated glamour and new styles you can shop for all your wardrobe essentials from the comfort of your own living room.

Tribal Print

Much like switching to bright lipstick or embracing a steady rotation of summery skirts, our infatuation with bold, tribal-print pieces inevitably emerges when we transition into warmer months! Just like the colour blocking/jewel tones trend of AW11, tribal prints is taking over this Spring/Summer. The trend consists of strong, graphic prints combined with warm, earthy tones and natural accents. Tribal prints add a funky twist to any outfit and this season it’s all about combining and layering different prints! Celebs boasting the aztec/tribal print trend feature the likes of Mary-Kate Olsen, Kim Kardashian and Lauren Conrad and these A list stars love to mix tribal motifs with plaids and stripes.

Colour Blocking

Hot, bold and neon colours are the way to go for summer 2012 as we thankfully wave goodbye to those winter blues. Beautifully bold shades get mixed up with rainbowy hues. Think intense and fresh fuchsia pinks, aqua blues and watermelons. Work these colours head to toe or create layers in colour blocks. Re-vamp your wardrobe and get the hottest of brights to be at the top of the trend. Toxic shocking colours to make heads turn is the theme; wear with oversized sunglasses and a floaty printed scarf for that over the top 1950s style glamour. Why not try some print tights to ease into the trend?

Pastels

This one was made for you girly girls out there! If one side of the colour trend spectrum for SS12 was neon brights and striking prints, the other side was something much more soft and subtle…pastels. Consider it a paler take on the hot colour blocking trend. More is more when it comes to pastels think baby and lavender with delicate mint and lemon, soft accents and relaxed shapes are sure set to make this season seriously sweet. Try one of the pastel coloured blouses for ultimate feminine style.
