Avatars are a great phenomenon in the computer worlds of gaming and social networking and interaction such as chatting and dating. Their timely application to the world of fashion is set to revolutionize and enhance the experience of online shopping and window shopping.
One example of this is the Lensshopper’s color contacts studio:
The color studio, a simple and intuitive studio of its kind enables users to try-on different contact lenses and colors on avatars that are a look alike to them. The studio enhances the users’ shopping experience as they choose their perfect lenses at the comfort of their desks without having to order samples.
Another great example is Taaz. Here, you can use the avatars available or sign up to upload your own photo and give yourself a complete digital makeover.
