@bkfashionweek  has been  moving towards this since 2006!Now, Online-Only Fashion Shows for Busy Editors - NYTimes.com | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it

KCD’s Digital Fashion Shows, accessibly only by password, intend to go further, with runway footage, designer interviews about the collections and notes on the clothes. It will be interesting to see just how different that seems from what many large fashion houses, like Chanel and Burberry, already do by putting enormous amounts of behind-the-scenes information about their collections on their own Web sites and mobile apps,

 

BS- ok designers  getting thast info iswhat we specialize in!

Custom shirts, is Bespoke Fashion design the next frontier for fashion tech! | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
Custom-made men's dress shirts were once considered the privileged peacockery of the moneyed set — a dash of sartorial swagger that could be afforded only by Hollywood A-listers, Wall Street bankers and monocle-wearing aristocrats of a bygone era.

A fashion revolution- no this is how I've always done business!

By far the most exciting thing I saw last week during the couture in Paris wasn’t couture at all, but a web site that is launching today: www.honestby.com....

Since I know this is hard to imagine, let me explain. You go to “collection” and, say, you click on a coat. Under the section “material information” you will find the description of material used, its composition, weight, yarn or piece-dyed, the origin of the raw material, who spun it, who wove it, whether it is organic, if so, what certificate it has earned (and what said certificate means), and a website for the supplier – and you will find this for the fabric, the zipper, the lining, the trim, the label, the buttons, the thread and so on.

Meanwhile, under “price information”: you will find out the cost per metre of the fabric, how much was ordered, how much was used, how much labour was involved, what the mark-up was, and how the profit was used.

In other words, by the time you press “buy” you will know exactly what you are paying for. Zounds!"


Now if only local designer would "LISTEN"

Until you've worked the retail floor  you will not  understand  how frustrating this is! Holding a garment in front of you is a useless fitting solution!  Money will be better spent  scanning  consumers for correct measurements and assisting their suppliers in with better sizing  specs!-bs

 

A new 'smart' retail concept uses the company's Kinect technology to let customers virtually try on clothes before braving the actual dressing room.
