The TOMMYNOW “See Now, Buy Now” Spring 2017 fashion show became the first time consumers could instantly and seamlessly shop the runway through 3D image recognition technology. We partnered with top visual search technology developer, Slyce, to launch SNAP:SHOP, an image recognition commerce app. The app allowed guests at the show to instantly shop items the moment the models hit the runway, including the Spring 2017 TommyXGigi collection designed in collaboration with supermodel Gigi Hadid. The SNAP:SHOP app instantly recognizes apparel and footwear styles in users’ photos of 3D moving images, such as models walking the runway, product in store, or 2D images such as ad placements and editorial shots, and links directly to tommy.com for purchase. Following our tradition of revealing new digital technologies on the runway to enhance the consumer experience, the SNAP:SHOP app allowed for even greater accessibility to the collection for consumers at the show, and those tuning in via live stream around the world. “TOMMYNOW is an incubator for innovative technologies,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “Our leadership in democratizing the runway and pioneering instant gratification runway shows has driven our passion for finding new ways to engage, involve and empower consumers to take part in these experiences. For February, we pushed the boundaries even further to connect with our global consumers in a way that reflects how they live and shop today.” "We already know that the #1 most popular thing people do at fashion events is take photos of the models," said Ted Mann, CEO of Slyce. "What Tommy Hilfiger realized is that this could be a natural way to unlock a magical shopping experience. Using Slyce's visual search technology, the SNAP:SHOP app that Tommy Hilfiger created instantly turns a photo of a model into a wish-list of all the items in their look. It's one of the coolest use cases for image recognition in retail we've ever seen."

Read the press release: http://www.nyc.gov/html/om/html/2013a/pr124-13.html Mayor Bloomberg and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (GPB) Director Cordray Announce Partnership to Replicate Local Consumer Protection and Financial Empowerment Models Based on New York City's Department of Consumer Affairs Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund to Work with CFPB to Engage with City Governments Nationwide to Build Local Capacity to Protect and Empower Consumers Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) Director Richard Cordray today announced a partnership between New York City, the CFPB, and the Mayor's Cities for Financial Empowerment (CFE) partners to help cities around the country enhance their local consumer protection and financial empowerment abilities. Building on its experience in nationally replicating the City's Financial Empowerment Centers, the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund will work with the CFPB to help other cities leverage their enforcement and public awareness abilities to protect and empower consumers in the financial services marketplace, as well as to serve as key partners to inform and enhance the work of the CFPB on the federal level. The Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund is the technical assistance and funding arm of the Cities for Financial Empowerment Coalition, which was co-founded by Mayor Bloomberg, a group of municipal governments dedicated to using municipal powers and opportunities to help their residents with low incomes achieve financial stability. The partnership will leverage the City's Department of Consumer Affairs, which enforces local consumer protection laws through licensing and other regulatory powers, and empowers consumers with low incomes through professional financial counseling, safe banking, and asset building programming. The Mayor and Director Cordray were joined at the announcement by New York City's Department of Consumer Affairs Commissioner Jonathan Mintz. In 2006, DCA's Office of Financial Empowerment (OFE) was launched by Mayor Bloomberg as the first local government initiative in the country with the specific mission to educate, empower, and protect individuals and families with low incomes. It creates innovative programs, products, and services for New Yorkers so they can build assets and make the most of their financial resources. Its goal is to increase access to high-quality, low-cost financial education and counseling; connect individuals to safe and affordable mainstream banking and products and services; improve access to income-boosting tax credits, savings, and other asset building opportunities; and enforce and improve consumer financial protections to safeguard financial stability. A hallmark program of OFE is the City's Financial Empowerment Centers, which offer free, one-on-one professional financial counseling. Since the pilot, supported by private donations made to the Mayor's Fund to Advance New York City, began in 2008, the program has grown to nearly 30 Centers and the financial counselors have helped more than 20,000 New Yorkers reduce their debt by almost $10 million. Financial counselors help New Yorkers deal with debt collectors, understand their credit reports, create budgets, improve their credit scores, open bank accounts, and start saving for emergencies and for the future. The Financial Empowerment Center initiative is also being replicated in five cities across the nation (Denver, CO; Lansing, MI; Nashville, TN; Philadelphia, PA; and San Antonio, TX) through a $16.2 million, three-year pilot funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies through the CFE Fund. The Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund, the technical assistance and funding partner of the Cities for Financial Empowerment Coalition, supports municipal efforts to improve the financial stability of households by leveraging opportunities unique to local government. By translating cutting edge experience with large scale programs, research, and policy in cities of all sizes, the Cities for Financial Empowerment Fund assists mayors and other local leaders to identify, develop, fund, implement, and research pilots and programs that help families build assets and make the most of their financial resources. The Cities for Financial Empowerment Coalition was launched in 2008 by New York City's Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg and San Francisco's then-Mayor Gavin Newsom to bring together local governments interested in advancing programs that increase financial security for struggling households, such as affordable and accessible financial products and services, financial education and counseling, and asset protection. In addition to New York City, the Coalition includes co-chair San Francisco, Chicago, Hawai'i County, Los Angeles, Louisville, Miami, Newark, Providence, San Antonio, Savannah and Seattle.
