Pixsta team launches Empora fashion site

Yesterday night we finally broke a bottle of champagne against the side of the good ship Empora and watched her slide out of the dock. We’ve been working on the project for the past couple of months, so it’s a pleasure to see it go live.

As well as the usual search functionality you’d expect on a retail site, Empora enables searching and browsing using the content of product images (currently either women’s clothes or men’s clothes). When you view a product you’re also shown items that may relate to it visually, either in terms of shape or colour.

As with any project there are always things I’d change, and things that aren’t done yet, but overall I’m pretty chuffed with what our team has accomplished so far. We’re by no means finished though. Expect big things in the near future.
