FashTime is innovating the inefficient social media fashion MFA through a 3-steps time-centered process. However, our solutions needed to be interconnected with a new content and platform experience: The FashTime Ecosystem consists of valuable tools for Users and Brands to interact with.

The most recent social media trends — together with our target users’ unmet needs — put the basis to build the whole FashTime platform. Time is its engine and the competitive advantage we always keep in mind.

Consumer Players (needs): Gen Z & The Late Millennial

What does the young generation want to see in a platform?

The “impact generation”: Gen Z are focused on finding meaning in their lives. Gen Z want a brand with purpose that values ethics & social responsibility.

The “free-style (digital) generation”: Gen Z are looking to embrace freedom & share their “vibes” through clothes. Nearly all use YouTube and 50% say they can’t live without it.

The “no photoshop” generation: Gen Z are interested in real photo shoots, real people, not overly polished. Everything you say or do will be scrutinized for whether it’s “real” or not. Gen Z are the “depressed generation”: for the 55%, IG affect their self-esteem.

The “feedback generation” or the “less confident generation”: Gen Z seek daily feedback. Gen Z love being part of a community that let its members help each others and enhance self expression.

The “high-street generation”: Gen Z are known for their interest in online shopping and have a big say on family spending decisions. 80 percent of Gen Z purchases are influenced by social media.

The “personal brand generation”: Gen Z show a lot of initiative nurturing, maintaining and utilizing their online presence to their advantage, whether that be on Instagram, Twitch, YouTube or other platforms and apps.

The “self-made generation”: GenZ with higher student loans and faced with higher costs of living are open to new ways to make money autonomously, crypto investing and the possibility of what token economies could become.

FashTime is addressing the late Millennial & emergent Z Generations through a trendy attention platform, while creating an interactive network that structures how they communicate TODAY.

· Get closer to the costumer with a new form of content (At scale)

Since 2010, there has been a 530% increase in social media advertising so it comes as no surprise that consumers are engaging with social channels for product information and purchase.

As digital natives, Gen Zs use different networks for each stage of their shopping journey and have developed a high tolerance for digital ads

· Get new insights to enhance your followers / costumers

Measurement has become increasingly complex due to fragmented customer journeys.

Connecting with customers in the right moment is crucial. The result is that data is a significant part of

everyday marketing strategies.
