Online fashion store creates collections based on customers’ designs

Cut On Your Bias is an online fashion store that encourages consumers to help design their new collections.

1st March 2012 in Fashion & Beauty.

Recently we saw Denmark-based MUUSE enabling its users to vote on their favorite design concepts from top fashion schools in order to bring them into production. Now we’ve come across Cut On Your Bias, an online fashion store that goes a step further by asking consumers to help design their new collections.

Located in New York, the startup has already begun working with designers such as Carlos Campos and Inigo Elizalde, who have provided initial ideas for products ranging from clothes to home accessories. Cut On Your Bias encourages users to customize these designs, choosing from a range of different materials, colors and cuts. Following a public vote, the most popular customized design will go into production and become available as a limited edition collection on the site, while users who voted for the winning design will receive a 25 percent discount on the final price. The site is updated with a new collection each week and voting cycles close every Sunday at midnight. The video below explains a bit more about the process

10 Hot Web Startups Changing the Face of Retail & Why  fashion  professionals need to take note | Style Dialectic | Scoop.it

So  do they help you shop better and get  what you really  need... I  doubt it! However It's not the retail sectors challenge or should i say it is not  solely the retail sector challenge! The core challenge of effective wardrobe acqusition is basic.  Supply demand... or rather need since demand can be swayed and teh fashion  & retail sectors are masters of teh art! still i do agree

 

"The future of ecommerce is now tied to consumer curation. "

 

It's Up to the  user to decide whose advise is worth it! for the  supplies it  is an opportunity to listen to what consumers want!
