About Stitch Fix
As mentioned above, Stitch Fix brings a personalized shopping experience to those seeking style advice. Stitch Fix provides a virtual experience that is unique to each client all from the comfort of their home. The first step in accessing the services is to first fill out a style profile which is a short survey/quiz that allows the stylists to understand the individual size, shape, style, budget, and lifestyle of the client. After completing the style profile, the client then picks a date to receive the first shipment of handpicked items based on the style profile.
After choosing the date, Stitch Fix then employs one of their personal stylists sends a shipment of five clothing items and accessories that mirror the unique style profile made by the client. Once the stylist has chosen the items, the client is charged a standard $20 styling fee which is applied as credit toward anything that the client chooses to keep from the shipment.
Once the shipment is received, Stitch Fix encourages the client to try on all of the items that the personal stylists have handpicked and create new looks from their current wardrobe as well as the new items from the shipment. The client can then pick and choose from the shipment, buying what they like and returning the unwanted items. To pay for the items that are being kept, the client needs to log onto their Stitch Fix account and pay for the items, and return the others.
