Andrey Golub, CTO of ATOMLab Milan, explained how the retail industry needs to adapt and create changes in response to new consumer trends. ELSE Corp utilizes a different approach which differs from the traditional product lifecycle of the retail industry. In the design and Prototype stages, personalization and customization by the consumer lead to the confirmation of sales before manufacturing even begins. Doing so, results in materials note being wasted and no remaining inventory being destroyed. The approach of Virtual Retail saves companies’ money and significantly decreases the amount of waste produced.
