Project Overview + Topic
Students are invited to explore a topic of their choosing through the creation of a screen-based interface.
The topic of this project will be to create an application for people to be able to organize their closets and pick what they wear on a daily basis.
prototyping in two weeks
Through this exploration, I was looking at how to create an app that can categorize a persons closet based on outfits. This app would be a combination of shopping applications and productivity/organization applications.
The app should allow the user to upload and categorize clothing items so that it can be set up similar to a shopping app with different section for different types of clothing. It should be straightforward and efficient, as well as not having too many pages on the bottom navigation bar.
The topic of this project will be to create an application for people to be able to organize their closets and pick what they wear on a daily basis. The goal of the project is to help the user’s overall organization and efficiency on a daily basis. Another goal is to allow the user to have a seamless experience getting ready for the day as their outfits have been planned based on multiple factors such as, weather, style, type.
For my user flows, I created 6 different basic scenarios the user would experience frequently such as, adding an item to their closet, generating an outfit for the day, adding a clothing item to their favourites, editing their profile, or even creating their account.
Proposed Solution and Results
The paper prototypes and mid fidelity wireframes began exploring the layout of the app. The wireframes and the navigation of the app included the four main pages of the app which were the user's closet, the outfit generator, the calendar page tracking previous and future outfits, and the profile page. Next was the creation of the mid fidelity mockup of the app. I looked at ways of generating outfits, saving them, viewing previous outfits, and also creating an archive of all the items in your closet. These ideas were all displayed on Figma within the two week span of this project. Due to time limitations, the vectors for this assignment were found online but the prototype was clickable and was visualized to an extent to show how the app would be used.
