SPEAKER SPOTLIGHT: STYLOKO

Named a game-changer in online shopping, Styloko has been making waves in the fashion industry since in launched in 2010 in the UK and more recently in the US too (launched in 2014). And while online shopping sites sure aren’t a new thing, we drill down into what makes Styloko stand out in the market, earning recognition as one of the best fashion and beauty websites and 8/10 votes in a road test of the best fashion apps and websites. The platform connects shoppers to the products they love fast with tools that understand what they’re looking for, visual-search recognition technology and shoppable editorial content. Once logged in, users can personalise Styloko to suit their style, follow favorite brands to stay up to date, and save items they love in your WantList which sends notifications when they go on sale. The WantList app by Styloko uses our Visual Discovery technology to show users the items that are both more expensive — ‘luxe’ — or less expensive — ‘less’ — for items similar by color, pattern, and shape. Using Tinder-like interface, shoppers can Swipe left to dismiss the product or swipe right to save it in their WantList (which immediately syncs with desktop). Keeping abreast all sorts of innovation in the fashion and technology space, Styloko wants to be where their customers are before any other retailer, which is why they’ve brought the Styloko shopping experience to your wrist via the Apple Watch. Now, who wants to swipe right for dresses instead of guys? *raises hand* Styloko wants to inspire and keep their community of fashionistas (more than 91k on Facebook...
DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: ALEXIS WALSH

DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: ALEXIS WALSH

We first got in touch with quickly rising fashion designer Alexis Walsh for a comment in one of our editorial pieces on 3D printing & fashion and we have been falling in love with her work again and again. So much so, that we’re bringing her magnificent sculptural creations on the runway on 3rd September! Alexis Walsh is an artist and designer based in New York City. Concentrating on wearable design with an integration of sculptural forms, she utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to fabrication. The majority of Alexis’s work focuses on the notion of using the human body as canvas. Through unconventional materials such as metal and plastic, and the exploration of technologies including 3D printing, Alexis transcends the traditional modes of fashion to push the boundaries of wearable art. All of her garments are sewn entirely by hand, utilising methods of couture design technique. For her most recent collection, the LYSIS COLLECTION, Walsh drew inspiration from virulent formations and deterioration to develop a body of work that consists of shapes that mimic the growth of viral structures while blending organic shapes with rigid structural silhouettes. To make these geometrically-complex shapes real, Walsh combined both traditional garment manufacturing techniques as well as CAD modeling and additive manufacturing to bring her vision to life. The LYSIS COLLECTION was recently featured in Kaltbult magazine and she counts as one of her fans a relatively known singer called Lady Gaga. Do we need to say more?
