My Role: UX Designer
Background: Digital Fashion Hackathon, held on November 5th and 6th, 2016 at StartupHouse, San Francisco, CA, brought together designers, web developers, and business professionals to build IoT app solutions for retail and fashion. The goal was to create an innovative app that could help foster growth in local and global fashion industries.
How can we create a product that could disrupt the fashion industry and help foster growth in local and global fashion industries.
To create an app that helps customers find clothes that fit well and flatter their unique body shapes.
Research and Discovery
As a team, we did some research on online shopping and listed some key pain points consumers and retailers faced when buying and selling fashion products online, respectively.
We also conducted competitive analysis to see who the competitors were and to find what makes our app more unique and better.
The creation of personas allowed us to see our target audience and gave us a better understanding of how to develop our product.
