Wanna check how the clothes would look on you before you decide to place an order at the online store at the comfort of your home? Try this unique mobile app.
A startup based in Hyderabad has developed “Trupik” a mobile application where a customer can virtually drape clothes on a 3D replica of himself. Just by feeding their body specifications, the customer can literally experience how the garment looks on him.
Unlike other e-commerce sites, this doesn’t just super-impose the photograph of the garment over the person’s photograph and show it on the mobile, claims the company.
At present this free app service is available only in two cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad. It plans to expand to Bengaluru next month and to Mumbai in May. It will have the tie-up with more brands in tier-II cities in June.
Providing garment shopping with trial-room and in-store experience on mobiles, presently serves only men and the company plans to soon offer the services for women. There are over 25,000 people registered since it’s launch last year in October.
Virtual Trial Room – Try it & Buy it!
Claiming to be offered for the first time anywhere in the world, Trupik has branded the personal assistance technology as SoFia, which stands as an acronym for “So Fashion I am”. “This is the closest to being real experience sitting where you are while choosing your favorite garment from your favorite brand and the nearest store, says ” Sridhar Tirumala, co-founder and CEO of Trupik.
Once a customer downloads the app, they have to feed all the details like size, skin tone, choice of stores/brands. It takes millimetre-by-millimetre measures and creates a 3D replica of the person.
If you want a precise body measurement, you can visit any of the 10 brand stores that have 3D kiosks and get body scanned and then sit back at home and shop.
Trupik has partnered with 16 brands like Raymond’s Allen Solly, Wills Lifestyle, Indian Terrain, People, Van Heusen, Peter England, Laven and plans to add more in coming days.
Started in 2013 at Silicon Valley, Trupik Inc. by Hyderabad-based techies Sridhar Tirumala, Aravind Inupudi and Vikranth Katpally relocated to Hyderabad in 2015.
Trupik is aiming to capture more premium brands and wants to widen their horizons from 45 stores in the twin cities to 2,500 stores across India.
