Haute App was the best and most innovative startup at the FashionMeetsTech event organised by techcabal.com and spiceTV which held last Wednesday, in a bid to explore the intersection of technology and fashion.
WHAT DOES THIS APP DO?
It helps tailors and fashion designers organize their creative process and manage customer information. This includes measurements, styles, and due dates. It could also be called a project management tool for tailors. With the app, users are able to store and manage customer information in a searchable database.
You can create albums, manage tasks, and save measurements. Users can also edit and share photos of finished products to various social media platforms via the app.
HOW DOES THIS HELPS A TAILOR?
It is a widespread habit for tailors to record measurements in notebooks – some even use single papers – but one problem with this is that notebook could get missing or torn or wet or stolen or even one thousand other things could happen to it. This is where Haute App comes in.
Haute has created a smooth process that’ll protect your ideas and make your work easier.
The Haute App team is made up of Imogie Mubarak (who’s the Lead Designer), Nosa Obaseki (Front End Developer), Efeturi Money (Android Developer), and Victor Ochende (Project Manager).
When asked about how the idea was birthed, Mubarak said, “I’ve been to tailor shops and I have a handful of friends who are tailors too. We saw an opportunity to create a product that helped them improve their production process.”
Haute App plans to launch in the first week of November but prospective users can register at http://www.thehauteapp.com/ to get early access.
Nice innovation, I must say. It is good to see fellow citizens identify a problem and try their very best to solve it. This would sure help organize tailors’ work even better – that is for those who are smart enough to get the app.
