The Internet’s latest fashion search technology, FIDOO (Fashion Information Distribution Organized Online) just launched last week and is on the lookout to award one lucky fashion student with a $2500 scholarship that will help the winner find his/her own fashion, through education.
Fidoo.com, the world’s first online fashion search engine, is a revolutionary tool that will enable the world to “find their fashion” by way of a simple search. FIDOO will eliminate the need to call around to stores to make sure they have an item in stock. Users will even be able to read current reviews from real people, online, in real time. FIDOO (The Fashion Engine) enables stores, brands, and designers to reach a wider audience, and makes it possible for customers to find the right products quickly and accurately. With technology’s purpose in simplifying our everyday needs, why hasn’t a tool like this already been created?!
FIDOO has partnered with top fashion schools around the country, and embraced new-wave marketing and communication to create an essay contest via Twitter. The scholarship will be awarded on January 15th for the Spring Summer 2012 term.
