Stylitics is a consumer insights
company that is unlocking a new stream of data on what people are wearing and
buying, in real-time. Our consumer-facing site (http://www.stylitics.com.) and apps let users “check in”

the world’s leading brands and retailers make smarter business decisions using live
data on consumer preferences.
