What do brands like New Balance, Adidas, Reebok, and Puma now have in common? They all have a virtual try-on feature. Amazon has come up with a great idea that seems to be making waves as we speak. It is a fantastic solution in the form of a new interactive mobile experience.
At the moment, this experience is only available to iOS users in Canada and the US. For now, Amazon Fashion’s Virtual Try-On announcement for shoes has gotten everyone excited. If you are using the Amazon shopping app on iOS, it is time to give the Virtual Try-On for Shoes a try. All the user has to do is select the shoe of their liking and tap the “Virtual Try-On” button. Then they have to point the phone camera at their feet. The shoes will get projected on their feet giving them a clear picture of how the product is going to look in real life.
But this is not all. This is just the beginning. This development has been happening not just in the USA but all around the globe. The following section talks about a few very popular brands that have already jumped on the 3D virtual try-on bandwagon and succeeded tremendously.
Brands like Farfetch and Prada partnered with Snapchat to launch their virtual try-ons. If you are a Farfetch fan, you just have to stand in front of the mirror and point your phone camera at it. Demand the app to show a fashion article of your liking. The software projects a product and it gets placed on your body.
When you talk about e.l.f Cosmetics, this brand has seen a lot of success with its AR campaigns on YouTube. They have recorded increased traffic and a significantly reduced bounce rate. It is as simple as tapping the “Try it on” button and the camera displays the featured product on them.

Arguably one of the most popular and elite brands in the world, L’Oreal seems to have understood just how 3D and AR in eCommerce can indeed change their game for good. Facebook has partnered with L’Oreal’s AR and AI company ModiFace. They have come up with virtual try-ons for makeup. It’s a very practical and smart move for cosmetic brands to use AR tools by social media giants to propel their sales further.

In the US alone, more than 55% of social media users between the age 18 and 24 and close to 48% of users 25 to 34 years of age made purchases through social media.
