Where is the apparel industry headed? The need for retailers to diversify and understand current consumer needs will be the focus for survival as we move through the information age. T echnology has and will continue to push the market into new ideas that allow niche retailers to stay slightly ahead of the game. Software to meet apparel consumer needs may be the answer for high end retailers. These retailers have an opportunity to embrace the consumers' internal problems by affirming that problems such as anxiety, obesity and depression exist. Software could help reach not only the consumer's money, but their humanity by creating an honest inviting environment. Should this proposed software be researched and developed further?
