Our main challenge is to create such a platform where fashion stylists, merchants and buyers can connect with each other.
This helps stylists to find more clients, merchants to sell products and buyers to buy the items they want.
We launched our MVP in end of 2014. We are now receiving feedback from users about the product. One of the common feedback received is that product still misses the engagement factor between the stylist, designer and users. Also stylists are not getting enough exposure what they actually want. Moreover users also have a few ways to connect with the stylists. We thought over this :
We start talking to some of the designers; who are using the product. We listen to them and start thinking in this direction.
After several conversations, feedbacks and thoughts; we try to find a solution for this. We called it as "Styleme".
Our Very first Draft look like this:
Once we settle down on something; it’s time to make it in real. Some of the early explorations of this concept looks like this:
There are basically 2 views of the Style me requests.
Once users post requests, all the requests shows up. Its like a community where anybody can see any request and act upon it. Anybody can post his/her requests.
In this view the request is shown in extended format with all the required details. All the responses, comments and shows listed here. Users can directly connect with the stylists/designers.
The major change we did in the current version is the UI enhancement. All the screens designed from ground up. More focus is given on crisp and clear look, simple and easy to use interactions and more tools for to get their job done. Apart from revamp; we also added a few more sections like:
We have taken the card based approach to display the majority of the information. We have used it for stylist request, look, portfolio, product and favorites.
All the images of the created project appears here. Each image has its description if needed. Other peoples can comment over this. This can be shared was well.
Interested users buy products from here. All the relevent info regarding the product is shown here. Its a 3 step process. User customize his product, add shipping info and proceed to payment.
Users can write their reviews and give ratings to a seller or a stylist. Similarly one can ask for recommendations inviting friends via email or social networks.
A potential buyer home page. A buyer ask for style dillema via style requests. He can explore the products wants to buy. Make a collection of his liked products in favorites.
Products can be added to favorites section via bookmarklet. Just select the image and add optional description or price. Any product can be saved via various shopping sites here.
A Widget is a piece of code; which users can embedd in their existing site or blog. This helps them to reach over a broader audience; while maintaining the presence and a personal zunati profile.
Users can save images/products of their choice through this bookmarklet.
We also added a blog section. Latest trends, articles, tips and tricks are posted here on a regular basis.
The work is still not finished yet. We are trying hard to make "zunati", a leading platform for professional stylists. Why don't you see yourself !
