I wanted to try Dresscode for multiple reasons. I believe in the mission, there is beauty in innovation. I also believe in supporting and empowering the people and companies who are here to make a positive change!

I love how a meaningful conversation can start about the importance of computer science, STEM and coding by simply wearing a bracelet. Dresscode has taught me that coding isn’t as hard as I thought it would be!

It is important for others to know Dresscode isn’t only an amazing product with an even more amazing mission, their customer service is EXTRAORDINARY!

What can Apps and Augmented Reality do for Fashion?

The real question should be what can’t they do?

In recent years, many businesses have been relying on new technology to keep up with our changing world. Apps are programs that are designed for mobile devices which a lot of us use in our everyday life. Augmented reality makes a computer generated image for the user to see in real time. Many of these programs have been used to make selfie filters, do marketing, and even help with shopping. This week, we’ve been chatting about these apps and programs that are taking fashion tech to new levels. These include DV closet, Facecake, and Glamscout.  

DV closet:

DV closet is an app that was made to enhance the way fashionistas communicate with each other online. London based fashion and tech enthusiast, Danae Varangis came up with the idea for this app so everyone could have an affordable way to communicate with stylists at anytime. What separates DV closet from other apps is that it helps you reach out to fashion professionals where you can receive advice over the phone, or exchange the latest news instantly. This is very useful for anyone who is trying to keep up with the latest trends.

On the other side of fashion tech, we have AR apps. While many of us tend to take them for granted on social media platforms such as Snapchat, FaceCake wants to use AR to change the way we shop. FaceCake is an online retail platform that applies patented tech to interact with users. With their innovations in AR tech, FaceCake has created several apps that allow us to try on products in real time. This provides an excellent solution to online shopping since we can try on products anywhere at any time. One of of favorite apps is, Dangle which allows you to try on earrings, virtually. Swivel is also very fascinating since it’s AR tech allows you to try on clothes and handbags from the comfort of your home. Best of all, if you like what you see, you have the option to buy them through the apps.
Glam Scout:

Of course AR tech has even made an impact in cosmetics as well. Even though there are many apps on the market for cosmetics, FaceCake has made GlamScout. Just like most AR programs, GlamScout allows you to try on makeup instantly, but the app also allows you to try on looks from magazines, social media posts, and other pictures. What truly makes GlamScout unique is that it recommends cosmetics to you and even offers cheaper alternatives. This is very innovative for millions of makeup lovers on a budget.

Apps and augmented reality are rapidly changing the landscape of fashion, and as tech becomes more and more accessible it is becoming easier for larger audiences to get a quality fashion and beauty experience.

Michelle

Location: Libertyville, IL

Role:  Student, University of Michigan Sophomore

I wanted to try Dresscode because I knew that coding can open up endless doors, so I wanted to try it out myself!

Dresscode was so straightforward and accessible that it alleviated my fear of programming and made me feel comfortable. By the end of the lessons, I felt like I had truly accomplished something and my completed website was a great way to show off what I had learned. Now that I’ve tried Dresscode, I’m itching to get more involved in coding and programming!

I love that Dresscode makes coding fun! Instead of watching a boring tutorial or reading from a textbook, Dresscode’s platform is engaging and made me genuinely excited to progress through each lesson. And of course, I love that Dresscode empowers women and girls to get involved in STEM, since we are so often in the minority and overlooked in this space.

Dresscode has taught me. that I have the power and the ability to do great things in the STEM, coding, and programming spaces. Dresscode has allowed me to become part of the network of women and girls who share an interest in coding, and it is empowering to know that there are so many people out there with my interests. Every time I look down at my Dresscode bracelet it is a reminder that “I am Smart,” and that is something I think every girl out there should remember.

Michelle worked as a summer growth intern for Dresscode.

I wanted to try Dresscode because I have always had an interest in software, and what makes things look and work the way they do. I love that I can make a statement by wearing my bracelet, and know that I not only got to learn something new, but I supported a woman-owned business.

Equality is a passion of mine, and being able to support an organization that shares that passion and is making a real difference is rewarding in and of itself. The fact that I get to learn something new AND get a beautiful bracelet is a bonus!

Dresscode has taught me that I CAN learn new things, and I CAN code, and I CAN invest in myself… all the while making a difference in the world.
