Retailers are being inspired by technology in a myriad of new ways, and are developing rich, visual shopping experiences and creating highly personalized services. For example, Kendra Scott is developing an experience with the look and feel of a store rather than an e-commerce site, where customers can browse drawers of a jewelry designer’s workbench to select styles and stones. ModCloth’s “Fit for Me” app enables a shopper to input her measurements and have a personalized, curated series of fashions served up, based on ratings and reviews from community members with similar body types. Ali & Jay’s partnerships with concierge apps meet the lifestyle needs of its digital native customers.
