As an avid online shopper and someone who loves fashion, I have always found Google’s product search to lack any sort of aesthetic appeal. Pictures are small, filters are too basic for power shopping and for the fashion-focused crowd; the overall design is unappealing. While product search’s format may work for searches for electronics, it doesn’t work for people looking to buy clothes, handbags… → Read More
Fashion bloggers are busily spreading the news that many of them have received an invitation from Google to attend an event in New York City next Wednesday evening. ‘High Tech Fuses With High Fashion’, the invitation reads.
It’s official. Google has acquired Like.com. In a post on Like.com’s homepage, the company’s CEO and Founder Munjal Shah writes that the visual search engine has been bought by Google.

Weardrobe is user generated, social platform for personal fashion. It is a place where people can catalog their own clothing and… → Read More
Shopping for fashion on the web can be an overwhelming experience. Not only can you find an unlimited amount of clothing on the e-commerce sites of retailers like Nordstroms and Saks.com, but there are also plethora of web-based sites that offer deals for fashion, including Bluefly, Zappos and ShopBop.
