We (TechCabal and SPICE TV), organised an event FashionMeetsTech last Wednesday, to explore the intersection of technology and fashion. Five startups were selected to exhibit their ideas, and then we asked you to pick the best. The results are in, and the winner is…Haute App.
What is Haute App? *clears throat*
It’s a service that helps tailors and fashion designers organize their creative process and manage customer information. This includes measurements, styles, and due dates.
In the simplest of terms, Haute App is 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.
If you’re a tailor, Haute wants to make your life easier. Writing down your customers’ information and preferences in a book can get messy, not to mention the fact that it’s risky – that book could get lost. 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.”
They plan to launch in the first week of November but prospective users can register to get early access.
