Web Design Agency Pod1 Delivers Ecommerce Powered Online Trunkshow to Salvatore Ferragamo

  (February 11, 2013)

New York, New York (PRWEB) February 11, 2013

New York based eCommerce web design and development agency Pod1, has just launched the latest version of the award winning online trunkshow for luxury Italian brand Salvatore Ferragamo.

The goal of this Magento e-commerce enabled site is to create a luxurious and engaging online environment for Ferragamos trunkshow and pre-order offering. Ferragamo wanted to replicate their in-store experience, allowing customers to browse and pre-order the new seasons collections before it hit the stores.

The site is built with the latest HTML5 and JavaScript coding standards so is optimized for tablets like the iPad and smart-phones. Fadi Shuman says, "Tablet's are now a bigger marketplace (and a far bigger growth opportunity) than desktop PCs, and from our research we know that the luxury shopper we are targeting uses these devices to browse and shop fashion in considerable levels. We needed to ensure the experience wasnt diluted or affected for the tablet/iPad user to protect the integrity of the brand."

The most unique and impressive element of this microsite is the "Style Yourself" area. Here, the Ferragamo shopper is able to view the full collection or can filter by category to find products she is interested in and can then start to assemble her own personalized look on the virtual, real-life model. The items are simply clicked upon and they appear on the model, styled and fitted perfectly. Layers can be replaced, accessories can be added and retracted easily and smoothly. All the while, a running real-time total of the products and prices which are being interacted with are displayed alongside the model, ready for pre-order. This section was developed to really empower the Ferragamo customer - both existing and newly acquired so she can fully engage with the collection and interpret it in her own way. The customer becomes the stylist, and any combination of desired products can be developed into stunning, true to life "Looks" which can be viewed from different angles, shared across the shoppers social media networks and ultimately, pre-ordered.

Wardrobing and outfit-building functionality can often be executed clumsily, and the outcome is unrealistic and unconvincing. We really wanted to ensure this tool was built to showcase Ferragamos luxury product in an environment that was fitting and deserving of the brand itself, and that ultimately would create a scenario where the customer would feel confident pre-ordering complete looks at high price-points.

Pod1 CEO & Founder, Fadi Shuman said, "This is the best version yet with enhancements in the front and back-end so customers can enjoy the experience even more.
