Explain your project in details:
OurLove App is a mobile application where individuals can scan 3D models of their body and see what they look like in a piece of clothes via VR technology so that they do not need to go clothing shopping in person. Our mission at OurLove App is to provide shoppers a new way to virtually shop for clothes and clothing brands/sellers a new channel to promote their products. We aim to help people choose clothes suitable for them in an effective and accurate way. We strive to provide shoppers with the most engaging shopping experience possible and clothing sellers with revolutionary ways to promote their products. Individual clothes shoppers and clothes retailers will both contribute to the payment to use our App. This idea was proposed considering remote or online shopping is becoming more and more popular nowadays.

Impact of your enterprise on sustainable development
OurLove App is a virtual clothing fitting software. It can achieve the following functions for users: Individual users can scan their body using this app and cellphone cameras. They can either do this by asking another person to hold the cellphone for them or fixing their phone in a position and moving their body in front of the camera. After the scanning, the App is able to build a 3D model of the users body shape, including its height, and size of different body parts such as arm, leg, etc. Users can also do some routine movements such as squatting and jumping and use the App to build 3D models of different gestures. Users are also allowed to input their body shape dimensions directly into the app such as height, weight, hip, etc. to help improve the 3D model. All clothes models and dimension parameters have been pre-loaded into the App. Users can browse different styles, sizes and brands of clothes and then choose what they like to put on the 3D models of their bodies. Users can directly order clothes they like via our App. Product Features and Benefits Accessible: our App users can simply download our app and scan using their cellphone cameras. Innovative: there is no similar application in the market currently. Our product will be the first application that supports 3D VR clothing fitting through cellphone. Economical: it will help individual consumers buy clothes suitable to them therefore avoid unnecessary waste. It will also help retailors reduce return rate and decrease their operational cost.

Your profile as an entrepreneur
My name is Qichen Wang born in 2002, China. As a new generation born after China joined the World Trade Organization, I witness that more and more ways of selling goods have been invented and used with the rapid development of China's economy. Since last year under the influence of COVID-19, the rise of online shopping has brought innovation to the shopping industry. The rise of online shopping is accompanied by many problems with online shopping, such as improper purchase size and a large amount of return data. So I started this project to solve many problems in the online shopping industry and decrease the return rate.
