What Volumetric Foot Scanning System Can Teach Retail – Sourcing Journal https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/what-volumetric-foot-scanning-system-can-teach-retail-sourcing-journal/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 22:26:26 +0000 https://kedsshoesforwomen.com/what-volumetric-foot-scanning-system-can-teach-retail-sourcing-journal/ Fashion may not be rocket science, but this rocket scientist has a lot to teach the industry.

Fashion may not be rocket science, but this rocket scientist has a lot to teach the industry.

Alper Aydemir, co-founder and CEO of Volumental, a leading in-store foot scanning company, explains how the technology, now available in 46 countries and with 35 million foot scans to its credit, is improving the fit, customer loyalty and retail assortment strategies.

Sourcing Journal: You entered the fashion industry via NASA and Google, so quite a technological pedigree. What made you move into retail?

Alper Aydemir: I did my PhD on machine learning, computer vision and AI at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm and worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory leading the computer vision group. I had worked on many 3D scanning and measurement projects, such as autonomous cars and robots, and was part of the first team of Google’s Tango project, which evolved into the toolkit of AR augmented reality comes with every Android phone. But I decided to ditch this world of Silicon Valley tech/machine learning robotics and create products that could scale to millions of people and solve problems. The technologies are very intertwined – it’s about how computers see the world in 3D and make sense of it.

Coming from the world of technology, the slower adaptation of fashion to technology must be difficult…

AA: Yes. Our main competition is not from another company, but rather from people trying to understand the technology. The push towards digitization takes time. Many people and teams need to get involved and integrate with our solution. The main challenge we see is the inertia of not wanting to change.

Volumental’s in-store foot scanner collects the relevant data on the spot.

What makes Volumental different from other fit tech brands on the market?

AA: We are not an insole or shoe company trying to make technology. We’re an end-to-end technology company and that’s our DNA. In addition to bringing best practices, we work with over 90 customers in many geographies and have experienced many deployments and usage patterns. We are able to bring these learnings to the wider industry and we work in a consultative manner.

How much more work needs to be done to integrate brands and embed data into their styles so retailers can make shoe recommendations based on analysis of a consumer’s feet?

AA: I really like this question because I have a great answer: they have nothing to do! And that’s one of the things that separates us from other tech brands. We tap into our customers’ purchase transactions and from there we can match scans to purchases.

If you reverse that for any given shoe, we have hundreds, if not thousands, of foot shapes that have purchased that shoe in that size and have not returned it. From this data, our system learns that this shoe is ideal for people with a high arch, or this shoe is ideal for people with a narrow width, etc. It is automatically in the database. So, when it comes to recommendations, our system has already learned that Hoka, for example, is specific to this or that type and is preferred by people of a certain characteristic. Plus, better fits lead to fewer returns, which is costly to business and the environment. On average, we find that stores reduce their returns by around 20%.

What about more nuanced consumer preferences?

AA: Most people are very, very consistent in their fit preferences. I might like a shoe that’s a little more comfortable, but you might want it to be a little roomier, with the average population somewhere in the middle. There is a bell curve, and we can provide a size distribution that says “70% of people with this foot shape prefer a size 7, but the rest prefer a size 6.5”. This way we provide both the store staff and the buyer the ability to reason about it. It really improves the conversation.

What is the granularity of the scanning system? Can it deepen the use, such as running?

AA: 3D scanning provides 80-90% of the information and value. If you want to reach the next 10%, we offer an additional option for dynamic analysis, but keep in mind that this takes longer. And the reality of retail is that not every salesperson can spend 20-30 minutes with every customer when it’s really busy. In fact, that’s one of the things that surprised me about coming to the fashion industry: how demanding a retail environment can be, with the need to deliver to a busy store on Saturday.

Since there are no online sales staff, how does this in-store functionality translate to the online experience?

AA: People use the word omnichannel a lot, but it really is a true omnichannel experience. As a customer, you go to the store, get scanned, and have a great experience. And thanks to this, your online experience is automatically improved. All of these data points and recommendations are passed on to the online world for that brand or retailer.

We’ve talked a lot about how retailers use data and how consumers can use it when shopping online. But how are brands using all this data for future development, like Lululemon’s expansion into women’s running shoes?

AA: Lululemon is one example, but not the only one. Fleet Feet also created a specific racing style based solely on the 3D scans they had done with our solutions. All data generated by our services is available to our partners and customers, so we have APIs and dashboards where their respective teams can make use of it. Additionally, our footwear research team works with product development teams to make sense of the data so customers don’t just take a masculine style and “pink it up and shrink it” to make it for the women.

We provide aggregate statistics which is useful for brands that sell in different parts of the world, as there are differences in Japan, Australia, China, even within different states of the United States. We published an article in Nature magazine about our analysis of 1.2 million foot scans. Adidas featured this article in their latest line of women’s running shoes, and to date, it’s one of Nature.com’s most downloaded articles.

Consumer acquisition costs have increased for retailers. How does in-store foot scanning help retailers build loyalty and create lifetime value?

AA: While the scan is being performed in the store, if a customer creates a profile, we email the scan to the customer. Almost everyone wants to get it because it’s your own unique 3D project. This translates into a huge increase in loyalty program integrations and the creation of that personalized customer profile.

Otherwise, it’s hard to get someone to give out their real email address in a retail store. Most retailers put $20-35 worth of this because they have to offer discounts and free items to entice people to sign up, but with our solution, you essentially get it for free. And people want to get it in their inbox. We see email capture rates of 70% on average, where normal retail is around 10%, and then we see an additional 75% of people click on that email and open the link .

But with this build, you get valuable information about your buyers, their email address, profile information, and the shape of their feet, and you can use it in a variety of ways. This is a powerful loyalty feature. It also helps stores better match merchandise as they learn more about preferences and fit.

Will consumers be able to use their online analytics information with other Volumental partners for recommendations?

AA: This is something we are rolling out and where I see the future. The end game is that you should be able to use your Volumental profile and shop wherever you want and find the things that suit you best.

What else does the future hold for us? What about body scanning for clothing?

AA: Our vision at Volumental is to shape a future without sizes where every body fits – and that is every body, in a nutshell. We have the largest foot analysis database in the world, which allows us to create and train the best AI algorithms and use the latest AI toolkits that Apple and Google put out in their latest phones. So yes, we are working on the latest and greatest in mobile scanning technology.

But we also believe in natural progression. It may come from NASA tradition, but I’m a big believer in “do the primary mission first,” and for us, that’s the shoe.

Fashion week returned to the Big Apple with nearly six days of in-person shows, including Gabriela Hearst, Prabal Gurung, LaQuan Smith, Collina Strada and Batsheva, held at different locations across the city. So, what sustainability did we see during New York Fashion Week?

New York designer Gabriela Hearst came to New York Fashion Week with a plan, showcasing activists and heroines while keeping sustainability in mind. Hearst, which is known for its sustainable manufacturing practices, made a third of its spring collection from dead fabrics and all shoe soles were largely biodegradable, and it didn’t stop there. The glue that held the gold leaf mesh dresses together was also eco-certified. Additionally, British designer Stuart Vevers used old leather jackets to turn them into jumpsuits, coats and bags.

The Collina Strada Spring/Summer 2023 show at Fashion Week featured collaborations, including two shoe capsules from sustainable brands Virón and Melissa.

The collaboration with Virón includes five styles that are all made from deadstock velvet. The runway also featured a shoe collaboration with Brazilian brand Melissa, which included cruelty-free and vegan sandals. Each pair is 100% recyclable and has organic EVA insoles derived from sugar cane.

Punk Majesty, an eco-friendly fashion brand known for its upcycling, showcased its studded blazers and moto jackets for its new collection during fashion week. The brand is strongly anti-fashion and belongs to women.

As fashion week improves and we see more eco-friendly practices, more and more brands are still not doing their part. It’s hard to love clothes and watch fashion week knowing that fashion is one of the dirtiest industries on the planet. Surely there’s a way to keep celebrating clothes without killing the world in the process.

The fashion industry has a big carbon footprint and accounts for 10% of global human emissions greenhouse gas. The environmental impacts of the fashion industry add to the many human rights concerns about the treatment of textile workers in factories around the world.

By buying or renting a lightly used item, you are helping to keep things in circulation that would have been thrown away in the landfill. Savings is the ultimate way to live the slogan “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!” Whether you’re picking out a gently used outfit for that party this weekend or some glass vases for some DIY magic, the local thrift store and second-hand clothing sites have you covered.

Movements to biodegradable fashion is pushing for eco-friendly dyes and alternative fabrics that don’t take hundreds of years to decompose. Comprehensive changes in the fast fashion industry can help end sweatshops and exploitative labor practices, heal the health and environment of the communities where the clothes are produced, and also contribute to the global struggle to mitigate climate change.

We need to preserve our planet! 13 million tons of clothes end up in our landfills and fast fashion has changed the way we think about clothes. It’s always best to recycle clothes and go to thrift stores or thrift stores when looking for new clothes. The recent the thrift store boom reduces the impact of fashion on the planet and showing that second-hand shoppers are eco-conscious and savvy, not just “hipsters”!

If anyone knows the power of glamour, it’s the blondes. Designer couple Phillipe and David Blond have been mainstays of the fashion industry for years, renowned for their elaborate ornate designs worn by Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce and Rihanna – to name but a few.

In fact, many of these women were on the Blonds moodboard this season. While simultaneously designing their Spring 2023 collection and creating The Blonds: Glamour, Fashion, Fantasy photography book, the duo rediscovered their own personal archives. A new inspiration eventually became the duo themselves, reminiscing about their romantic encounter on the Manhattan nightlife scene in 2000.

“We fell in love with dance music, hung out around town, and that included people like Jennifer Lopez and Missy Elliott,” David recalled exclusively with FN backstage before the show. “It also goes back to this idea of ​​the past merging with the future.”

Indeed, the boundless energy of the couple’s Spring Studios show felt like a fashion throwback. DJ’d by the Misshapes, Daphne Guinness, Amanda Lepore and Susanne Bartsch held court front row while Coi Leray, Gigi Gorgeous and Cassie – strutting to her 2006 hit “Long Way 2 Go” – walked in 2000-inspired pieces covered in chains, crystals and link prints. Saucy Santana played a musical set on the track while Nikita Dragun twerked nearby. At one point, longtime Blond model Kirill Kabachenko ripped off her tank top, tossing shreds into the crowd before strutting the runway in a printed speedo and platform boots. This new chapter in the Blonds’ fashion heritage, coupled with the rock concert energy of the runways – as described by guests at the Amrezy x Pretty Little Thing after-party – certainly closed Fashion Week with a show.

Also of note is the duo’s ongoing collaboration with Christian Louboutin, who designed custom shoes for the show. This year, platform boots, stiletto pumps and ankle boots were covered in prints, sequins and matching studs. The styles were developed after the Blonds sent their textile materials to Louboutin – and even achieved their goal of dazzling the designer’s signature red soles.

“We sent them the materials so that everything matched from head to toe,” David said. “Obviously one of our dreams has always been to have crystals on the bottom of the shoes; it has a detail, it’s so cute because it’s hidden away, and it takes it to the next level of luxury. Philippe has developed a fondness for platforms, so we’re into it. »

As The Blonds wrapped up Fashion Week with a glitzy viral bang, I couldn’t help but wonder – do blondes actually have more fun?

“Absolutely! Right? You have to go blonde,” Philippe proclaimed after the show. “I feel like everyone is blonde at heart, really.”

Christian Cowan x Crocs has arrived. On Tuesday night, the designer held his Spring/Summer 23 show during New York Fashion Week, where models could be seen walking the catwalk in Crocs.

This marks the start of the first-ever partnership between the two brands. The collaboration consists of three styles, which Cowan has reinvented.

“I wanted to have the variation because they all have different uses in your daily life,” he told FN backstage on the show. “And then I wanted to bring our brand identity to the Crocs brand identity. I’m known for the glitz and the glam and the checkerboard and the pink and the bows. So it’s basically all of us in one. And it’s just about bringing in the glamour, which makes so much sense to do with Crocs because Crocs experiments so much, and that’s my favorite thing with fashion is to experiment.

The Christian Cowan X Crocs Mega Crush clog, for example, stands 61mm tall and features an improved rubber tread and increased proportions. The shoe is all black and detailed in removable metal chains that can also be worn as a necklace with a Crocs pendant. For the first time, Christian Cowan X Crocs introduces Jibbitz charms that can be converted into other wearable accessories.

Additionally, the collection introduces an ode to yin and yang with the Christian Cowan X Crocs Classic clogs, featuring a left clog in black and a right clog in white. This new style also features Jibbitz charms, including jewel accents and metallic chains.

And finally, Cowan took the classic Crocs sandals and turned them into candy pink with oversized pink bows that can also be worn as hair clips.

“We are a ready-to-wear brand so I wanted Crocs to become ready-to-wear,” he noted of the versatile Jibbitz. The Crocs collaboration also inspired looks from Cowan’s Spring/Summer 23 collection, as seen in a black and white leather look, reminiscent of the style of yin and yang clogs.

“This spring collection was all about expression and freedom and as you can see it’s like every pattern, color and texture under the sun. I wanted to show that you don’t always have to having heels. And even though we still do it and still do it, it can still be really fabulous,” Cowan said.

To celebrate the launch, Crocs and Cowan enlisted Michelle Visage and Simone from “RuPaul Drag Race”, Sonja Morgan from the “Real Housewives” franchise and Christine Quinn from Netflix’s hit TV series “Selling Sunset”, as well as singer Tinashe, makeup artist Jazelle, “Saturday Night Live” personality Chloe Fineman and model Daphne Groeneveld will appear in the campaign.

The limited-edition capsule sells for between $50 and $100. All styles will be available on Crocs websites starting September 28 in the US and Europe, and September 29 in Japan and Australia. The collaboration will also be available at select outlets across Europe, including Offsprings at Selfridges, Galeries Lafayette and LuisaviaRoma.

A portion of proceeds from the Christian Cowan X Crocs collaboration will be donated to the Ali Forney Center, which provides assistance to homeless LGBTQIA+ youth in the United States.

Lizzo made a fiery fashion statement at Beyonce’s disco-themed birthday party this weekend in Los Angeles.

The “About Damn Time” singer shared her party outfit on her Instagram today, revealing a sizzling ensemble. Lizzo wore a red corset from the Gucci x Adidas collaboration, pairing it with a matching red miniskirt and a Valentino animal print shoulder bag.

“We Gucci,” she captioned.

For the shoes, Lizzo donned brown flat pumps that made the brown Gucci logo panel stand out from her corset.

Lizzo completed her outfit with a handful of accessories, which included a black headband, gold earrings and bracelets, and round tortoiseshell sunglasses by Gucci.

Beyoncé celebrated her 41st birthday surrounded by celebrities. The guest list also included Ciara, Kim Kardashian, Offset, Megan Fox, Machine Gun Kelly, Adele, Zendaya and Drake.

The “Good As Hell” singer has a penchant for modern, sleek clothing that stays true to her personal aesthetic and showcases her affinity for bold prints and colors. When it comes to her footwear style, Lizzo tends to lean towards heels and pumps, chunky sneakers, combat boots and fuzzy slides.

Last month, Lizzo had a fashion statement moment at the 2022 MTV Video Music Awards in Newark, NJ. The singer wore a Jean Paul Gaultier couture dress in a blue-black chrome duo. The off-the-shoulder moment was larger than life, the voluminous fabric came together in such a way that it cascaded and draped like flowing water, giving the founder of the Yitty shapewear brand an exquisite silhouette.
