Fast fashion giant Zara wants to upgrade its dressing rooms. According to Fortune, the retailer is experimenting with adding iPads to each changing room stall so customers can get a different size or try out a different color with just the push of a button.
All you'd do with Zara's iPad system is scan your items into the iPad in your dressing room, which allows you to request a different item that a salesperson will bring right to your room. The iPad's display will have a similar look to Zara's website.
Spanish publication The Local reports that Zara is testing the iPads in its biggest stores in Spain. Then it will decide whether to roll out the new system to stores in other countries. Other brands have experimented with smart dressing rooms, like Rebecca Minkoff's totally-connected boutiques, but The Local suggests this is the first time a fast fashion brand has tried out this technology.
