Through working in Visual Merchandising I identified a problem which intrigued my interest for the final project. Working with mannequins made me realise that the methods are very outdated and do not take advantage of modern technology. I found this to be an opportunity to create an interactive mannequin which would combine technology and retail in order to create a project which may be beneficial to future stores. This project would include a system which could help keep track of the stores stock and appearance. The customers can engage with a more interactive experience which would allow them to shop with ease and make it more interesting. I used Modul8 and MadMapper to project outfits onto a mannequin with the addition of MIDI control software.
