Dress60 takes part in the Telefónica Open Future Global Race

Two weeks ago Dress60 met again. Alejandro Deleyto, CEO of the Startup, encouraged the team to participate in a Startup contest: The Telefónica Global Race Open Future.


The competition consisted in three phases where the first one mainly focused on creating the Startup’s profile and then try to get as much votes as possible. And so we did. We decided to take part in that adventure.

That same day we started to work. We built Dress60’s profile , we uploded it to the Telefónica’s platform and we started to contact people. We know we’ve been a little tiresome lately, but all that was for a good reason. The final award was to be able to present Dress60 to investors and professionals of the sector in the Mobile World Congress of Barcelona 2017.

Undoubtedly, that was our great motivation for not stopping typing and sending messages by Whatsapp, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and all the social networks that you can imagine, to all the people we know, non-stop. We contacted people from all over Spain: Almeria, Vitoria, Gijón, Oviedo, Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Cadiz, Huelva, Valladolid and many others. But not only nationally, but also internationally: Mexico, Argentina, Germany, Portugal, UK, Brazil, South Africa, USA, Russia and a long etc.


It was a busy week, but every day that passed, we went from 100 votes over 100 votes. It was incredible! All this was possible thanks to the digital world in which we live nowadays. The connectivity that exists now. Sometimes, when we talked to a specific person, he or she told us that he or she had already voted, because a family member, a friend, a neighbor or someone that he or she knew had already told him/her about it… Dress60 was back on track.

The icing on the cake was set by a guy from Bangladesh who contacted us for an offer of 150 $, to get 1,000 votes. He emphasized that the votes were for real and he asked if we were interested in accepting their services, to which we strongly answer no. However, it was enriching to know that there are people who have found a business on voting contests of this type.

After the voting period closed, we got a whopping 574 votes in just one week. It was a great effort done by everyone. We managed to qualify in the 30th position from a list of 347 Startups. In addition, we were few positions away of one of the greatest in the information field. A boy who will give much to talk in the upcoming few years, Toni Moret, CEO of Infomix, which exceeded the 600 votes.

Although is true that we did not pass to the next qualifying phase, we are leaving the Telefónica Global Race with a very good feeling. The reward of being able to share our idea all around Spain and in many other parts of the world was priceless. Thanks to all of you.

The affection of the people, their support and their interest in the idea makes Dress60 to committe and continue fighting. Digitization is reaching all sectors and the fashion world can not be left behind. For that reason, Dress60 can not miss this opportunity to leave its own footprint in this Era, The 4th Industrial Revolution.

Once again thank you all for your support. Thank you Telefónica and we will keep it up. The show must go on.

Dress60, out.

The world of fashion and the Personal Shoppers

The things that can happen when one enters the world of fashion are incredible. There is definitely no turning back. Everything turns into a vicious circle in which the only goal is to be at the latest trend. Why? To be honest, it is because we feel more beautiful and attractive doing so, and therefore, more comfortable with ourselves and our inner consciousness. Whoever says otherwise can cast the first stone.

From that personal feeling that comes out the key figure of the world of fashion. The so-called Personal Shopper, better known in our country as the «Asesor de Imagen«. But we should not fool ourselves… Personal Shopper sounds way cooler than «Asesor de Imagen«. Please, what is hot right now are the anglicisms, they are cooler.


Therefore, what is a Personal Shopper? First of all, this person could be a man or woman. But to continue, this person should be someone who can help us to choose our best outfits, and by doing so, he/she will make us feel more comfortable with our own image and the one we want to show others.

There exists an amount of diverse sociological and psychological studies that clearly show that people who project a better image of themselves are more likely to achieve whatever they desire. That’s what the English speakers have called Power Dressing. So, let’s put our backs into it!

However, I was perplexed of the following situation: Having decided that my article was going to be focused on the theme «Personal Shopper» I decided to ask to a few people the following question:

«If you were using the services of a Personal Shopper, would you want it to be a man or a woman?»

The truth is that I obtained several types of answers, but, surprisingly, the answers were not one sided. On the contrary, all the answers were basically an inner dialogue considering which option would be better. As they answered, they mentioned their own doubts and decided depending on them. I found the discovery of how the female brain works fascinating. Even if it was just a small portion of it.

As soon as they finished analyzing the question and organizing their thoughts, they began giving me their answers. I would have never guessed them. Here are a few key points:

  • In preference, I would pick a man, since a woman would probably not tell me the whole truth. Sometimes, in order to protect others, we do not say everything that we think. I don’t trust that.
  • If I had to choose one, I’d rather have a man, however, it would have to be gay, since they have a much better fashion sense.
  • I would rather have a man, but not a gay man, because he will truthfully tell me how well the clothes fit me, and I will be able to see it in his eyes.
  • Definitely a woman, I would feel more comfortable in those type of situations.
  • I would not use it, since I believe that all opinions would be for the sole purpose of selling more.

As you can see, there are a wide variety of opinions and tastes, but let me inquire you to reflect on the following:

What would you pick? A man or a woman?

Regardless of you decisions, I hope that one day you try it, I hope you go out and buy with your very own Personal Shopper, or in the stores themselves, where the free version of it’s services will be offered.

It will be an unforgettable experience. It might also be a way to stop routine, or as we would say:




Luxury and fashion networks in the Asian giant

The Asian giant arrives in the networks of luxury and fashion that bring the runways around the world. Spring is loaded with transparencies, networks and perforations that leave little to the imagination. Gone are the predominant flowers and pastel colors. The wardrobe is reinventing itself, and it is doing so while in the purest Madona style forming networks of luxury and fashion.

Fashion magazines bring forth a group of celebrities who have succumbed to the power of Balmain and Chanel on the cover and interior designs. Among the several outfits that have been selected in this emerging spring-summer season , highlighted are the sets of » networks of luxury and style «. Both the catwalk models of Paris, Milan and New York and the famous actresses and singers, are happy with the new designs that leave little to the imagination.

Selena Gomez , Bianca Brandolini , Miranda Kerr , Cate Blanchet and Eva Longoria are head over heels about the new designs that stand out in red runways around the world, from pure white to metallic black. The net’s touch plays a part either in combination or solo as both instagramers and the most famous street styles of the moment.

While the new season is taking the catwalks, the Chinese market takes power in the streets. Not only can you see this in revolutionary trend individuals in the business world, such as Eva Chen . The independent designer , Liu Lu , as well as outstanding Chinese entrepreneurs make their intentions clear: to move the fashion and chic to their country’s streets.

Shangguan Zhe (@sankuanz), Fiona Lau y Kain PickenVega Zaishi WangChristine Lau and Anais Mak are some of the names that have caused big impressions in 2015. But what can we highlight if we travel to, say, Shanghaï ?

Luxury flows through the streets of Chinese cities and towns . During a visit to Shanghai one could see that the Chinese citizens dressed proudly, with all sorts of backpacks and handbags taken from the most recent sales of Prada , Chanel and Dior. At first glance it seemed that they did not feel passion for fashion in general, but with a more careful look one could see that they are as brave as the Londoners and feel as comfortable with styles as the models on the catwalk.


The great work being accomplished by bright Chinese designers like Liu Lu,  Xander ZhouUma Wang or Zuc Zug is gradually gaining respect in the most privileged areas of China. There is no doubt that they are known internationally, but his venture has accomplished some fascinating: to cause a typical Chinese citizen to change the traditional blue, black or brown dress to an innovative one filled with a wide range of colors, styles and, it seems that in spring, luxury and fashion networks.


Redes de Moda y lujo en el gigante asiático

El gigante asiático cae en las redes de moda y lujo que traen las pasarelas de todo el mundo. La primavera viene cargada de transparencias, redes y perforados que dejan poco a la imaginación. Atrás quedaron las predominantes flores y los colores pastel. El armario se reinventa y lo hace al más puro estilo Madona formando redes de lujo y moda.

Las revistas de moda sacan en portada y en los diseños interiores, a un conjunto de celebrities que han sucumbido al poder de Balmain y Chanel. Entre las elecciones de outfits que han seleccionado en esta emergente temporada primavera-verano, destacan un conjunto de “redes de lujo y estilo”. Tanto las modelos de las pasarelas de París, Milán y Nueva York como las famosas actrices y cantantes, lucen felices los nuevos diseños que dejan poco a la imaginación.

Selena Gomez, Bianca Brandolini, Miranda Kerr, Cate Blanchet o Eva Longoria se pierden por los nuevos diseños que desde el blanco más puro al negro metalizado destacan en pasarelas rojas de todo el mundo. El toque de red juega combinado o en solitario tanto en instagramers como street styles más afamadas del momento.

Mientras que la nueva temporada va tomando las pasarelas el mercado asiático chino toma poder en la calle. No solo puede verse la revolucionaria tendencia en personajes del mundo de la empresa como Eva Chen. La diseñadora independiente, Liu Lu, así como destacados emprendedores chinos dejan clara su intención de trasladar lo fashion y chic a las calles de su país.

Shangguan Zhe (@sankuanz), Fiona Lau y Kain Picken, Vega Zaishi Wang, Christine Lau y Anais Mak son algunos de los nombres que han sonado a fuerza de tacones en 2015. Pero, ¿qué podemos destacar si nos damos un paseo, por ejemplo, por Shanghaï?

El lujo recorre las calles de las ciudades y pueblos chinos. En una visita a Shanghaï las ciudadanas chinas, principalmente, lucían orgullosas toda clase de bolso y mochilas sacados de las últimas temporadas de Prada, Chanel y Dior. A primera vista daba la impresión de que no sentían pasión por la moda en general pero solo hacía falta observar para ver que son tan valientes como las londinenses y se sienten tan cómodas con los estilos como las modelos en la pasarela.

El gran trabajo que están realizando diseñadores chinos como la brillante Liu Lu,  Xander ZhouUma Wang o Zuc Zug va cobrando sentido poco a poco en las zonas más privilegiadas de China. Sin duda son internacionalmente conocidos pero su emprendimiento ha conseguido que una ciudadana china cambie el tradicional atuendo en azul, negro o marrón por una gama aperturista e innovadora cargada de color, estilo y, parece ser que en primavera, redes de lujo y Moda.

Nuevas tendencias en moda y tecnología

¿Qué hay de nuevo amigos? Dress60 se viste de tecnología para avanzar sobre las nuevas tendencias que están acaparando la atención de todos. Cuando los diferentes medios de comunicación advierten de una revolucionaria tendencia en el sector de la moda las mesas comienzan a temblar. Los meses avanzan y la tecnología sigue maravillando con nuevos inventos o, simplemente, con los mismos instrumentos pero perfeccionados. Más si cabe, la tecnología quiere abordar el sector de la moda y esta vez quiere envolverla de realidad aumentada, gafas 3D y robots multifuncionales. Pasamos de hablar de «nueva era digital» a encontrar innovación y evolución digital en diferentes tendencias, en este caso en la moda.

Atrás quedaron los maniquíes de tallas predeterminadas. Descubrimos el nuevo maniquí – robot que se adapta a tus medidas. Se dice pronto pero el proyecto que lleva consigo el nombre de iDummy es el resultado de años de duro trabajo. Un reto prometedor y brillante se ha convertido en viral en las redes sociales atrayendo a fashionistas e ingenieros. Trendencias toma el rol de vocero oficial y nos pone al tanto de este nuevo robot-maniquí.


Tal y como reclaman miles de usuarios y usuarias, el maniquí estándar está un poco obsoleto mientras que las tallas no predeterminadas, junto con la personalización,  van tomando forma hasta tal extremo que nos encanta. Las llamadas fashionistas anunciaron que tenían problemas con la elección de la talla adecuada, a la hora de ir a comprar. Pero lo que sí generaba frustración, en algunas ocasiones, era el enfrentarse a una modelo de alturas a veces inalcanzables, que no reflejaba el cuerpo estándar de las compradoras.

Ante estas situaciones, las nuevas propuestas tecnológicas son una apuesta de futuro en la resolución de estos dilemas. Tendencias que Dress60 quiere incorporar en la concepción de «experiencia de compra».

El famoso customer experience evoluciona de la pasarela a la casa, añadiendo otro elemento más de valor al “mundo fashion” de la mano de la realidad aumentada. Pasamos de recorrer la Sevilla medieval con Past View a estar presentes en un fashion show, gracias a la ayuda de lo que parecen unas simples gafas y un móvil.

Seguimos la evolución de este prometedor matrimonio que forman tecnología en la era digital y Moda con mayúsculas.

The digital future of Fashion

The world of fashion is changing at a tremendous pace. Newer technologies are born and introduced every day, originating in Balenciaga, Ortega or Blahnik. But… Why? There are two basic reasons: The first is attributed to the evolution of new technologies, and the second is due to the Millennials. The digital future of fashion is almost here.

It is quite likely that one of them is reading this article, but who are these millennials exactly? To define them simply, they are the individuals that belong to the generation Y, who have been born in the last two decades of the twentieth century. Can you identify yourself as one of them? A major difference between this generation and the previous ones (generation X and Baby Boomers), is that we are much more influenced by technology.

“Kids used to be born with bread in their hands.

Nowadays…they are born with a fully mastered mobile phone and tablet ”.

Fashion brands are aware of this change. Thus, they must add and implement new technologies in order to interact with their future clients. Zara, Sephora, John Lewis, Tesco and many others have already began with this transformation.

However, what excels the most in these new tendencies that fill the fashion market are digital mirrors. Do you know about them? These new products are already revolutionizing the experience in stores all around the world. This is how a new method to try on clothes is born. Some stores like Ralph Lauren have already implemented this new tech in Manhattan, however, when will it reach Spain?

It is possible that introducing this new experience could boost sales. Nevertheless, it has been observed that there is an increasing tendency towards purchasing clothing product online in the retail world. How could this sales be further increased? This would be the next step that the largest brands in the world of fashion are facing. The next issue would be the mobile phone. This is the future, one that is in the hands of the Millennials.

See you in the next post.

Millennials are driving a fundamental change in the way we think about corporate culture and what we see as the potential for impact in the social sector by both companies and employees”
