stylink.vnStylink is a fashion social network that has integrated the simulation technology for the online dressing room and other fitting purposes. I have been part of this interesting startup project as a co-founder since 2012.

Back to those years, there is the emergence of social networking sites in many areas. Social networking for human resources, for house/apartment renting, for selling real estates, for foods, etc. and we have also joined the rising wave with a social networking site for fashion industry: the Stylink network.

At that time, the existing selling model had few major problems:

  • Customers only see pictures and information, but do not be sure if the product fits their sizes
  • It is difficult to image the combination of different sets of clothes and accessories
  • There is a lack of community feedback for their styles

We have started working on the Stylink project to aim following goals:

  • Apply modern visualization technologies to help customers see their visual as more real as possible
  • Use social networking concepts to increase the interactivity among different groups of users: providers, sellers, designers, stylists, showbiz stars, customers and fans
  • Integrate useful tools of e-commerce platform for managing sales and social marketing

Our silver bullet is the virtual dressing room, that is the combination of front-end programming and back-end image processing:

Besides, we have other tools for styling purposes:

The project was not successful as our dream and has been suspended in 2014. However, we will come back with another amazing project soon, and definitely I will let you know. Viva la Sonar!
