Gracyfy has come up with its flagship 'Fashion Concierge', a personalised and holistic, look-based shopping experience, escalating their business model from dropship to full-service ecommerce. Gracyfy's Concierge provides an edge over blind subscription boxes by connecting shoppers with stylists for that humanised 'let's go shopping, girlfriend' experience.

The Internet has disrupted traditional retail. Last few years have seen an explosion of all top brands going big with their online presence. With shipping and returns becoming less of a detractor and exclusive online offers seeing uplift, online shopping has become a go-to choice for most consumers.

However, many women now find it overwhelming to shop their perfect styles and right fits from the thousands of products hosted on hundreds of websites, in order to maintain a wardrobe that accentuates them and their lifestyle. The solution could be hiring a personal shopper or stylist, but that may not work for most budgets. Clothing subscription boxes try to address this, but most send selections to their customers as surprise products in boxes chosen through un-interactive programmes. Also, recommendations may be constrained by in-house inventories. Many are not a good match for the customer and are returned.

Consumers enjoy the convenience of digital subscription experiences but are looking for conversational simplicity similar to what brick-n-mortar offers. Gracyfy's Fashion Concierge steps in with a differentiated personalised service at an affordable price, made possible through blending technology and human accessibility. Their stylists are armed with cutting edge technologies to enable scanning thousands of products across hundreds of brands as they compile custom looks for each customer.

To enroll with Gracyfy's Fashion Concierge users complete a short style quiz. The customer is then connected with her own concierge assistant enabling on-demand ongoing conversations throughout their engagement with Gracyfy. It is like chatting with a friend who will make every effort to understand you, without being judgmental, and will always make time to help. Gracyfy gets that life and people are always changing. The client and her assistant can stay lock-step on changing goals, style, body shape, and budget.

The stylist creates virtual look-books to share with the client. The client can purchase what she likes and the items ship directly from the retailers. Purchased items are never marked up over net retail charges. Gracyfy's Fashion Concierge has a pricing model as hassle free and transparent as a pizza delivery service. Customers pay for the items they order and tip the concierge assistants for their service. No upfront deposits or cashback required prior to purchase. Implementing a tip-based service model is a customer-focused approach, to keep the stylists accountable for creating good working relationships with their customers. Like in any experience driven industry, things can go well or things can go not so well, what matters is hold a good connection with ones customers.

Gracyfy, an angel funded startup is founded by Yesh Kane Desai, a digital veteran who has led e-business programmes ground-up for a Fortune 50 conglomerate and currently serves in an advisory position for Digital Channels - Research and Innovation for a major US bank.

"Women leading a busy lifestyle, particularly professional women and moms with young kids on regular budgets turn to Fashion concierge for help with their clothing and accessorising needs. We are women who have escalating life priorities, personal and professional. Plus, everybody has different body attributes, preferences and budgets to work with. It can be tough to find time for wardrobe up-keep, and it does matter! At Gracyfy, we are all about mixing style and purpose. Scientific studies on 'enclothed cognition' as well as our own day-to-day experiences have shown that right-for-us clothing can contribute to our confidence, raise our self-esteem, and help propel us in the workplace and relationships. Gracyfy's Fashion Concierge stands for that purpose. Our concierge has started with fashion and aspires to scale-up to a full lifestyle offering," explains Desai, a mother of two young kids. (SV)
