Not only can consumers watch the Autumn Winter 2015 fashion show live from wherever they are, but now they can create their own ‘MeModel’ and try on the clothing from the catwalk in real time and pre-order the collection in the right size.

Fans of House of Holland can also enter a competition for their chance to win a £2,000 shopping spree.

The show, part of LFW Autumn Winter 2015 collections, goes live on Saturday February 21th at 19.00and can be watched in real time by visiting www.tryonHouseofHolland.com. Beneath the show video, the exclusive clothing is presented as it would be on an e-commerce site.

The consumer simply clicks the ‘try it on’ icon, adjacent to each item, to reveal the Metail widget. Ten seconds later, having inputted three simple measurements; height, weight and bra size, a personal MeModel is revealed which is within 96% accurate of the user’s own body. Whilst watching the show the MeModel’s outfits can be updated by clicking items as they come down the catwalk. Fans can also pre-order their favorite pieces before it goes on sale.

In a quest to offer the latest enabling technology to fashion hungry girls all over the world, House of Holland Creative Director Henry Holland also partnered with Metail to help launch his SS15 collection in September 2014. This hugely successful online campaign saw adoption rates of more than 76% with users spending up to 21 minutes engaging with the collection. 1 in 3 fans browsed the entire collection and on average tried on 12 looks.

“The results from using Metail are impressive. The product is great FUN, we all love playing with it and want to keep working together” said Holland.
