A Perfect Fit—Qvit.com Relaunches With Revolutionary Avatar Technology


Chic styles, smart convenience. That's the promise of Qvit, an online boutique that combines innovative technology and unique style to allow shoppers to digitally “try on” its carefully curated designer duds from the comforts of home.

Sisters Lorena and Mayra Roa and best friend Laura Pastrana launched Qvit in 2009 and have been working with software developers to create custom-made avatars. Following several years of development and excitement from early users, Qvit will unveil its groundbreaking technology on September 2nd, along with its expanded boutique of over 100 new products from 80 different men’s and women’s designers, ranging from Dolce Vita to Joe’s Jeans.

If you want to get in on the action before Qvit's membership becomes invitation-only, create an avatar before the 2nd, and you'll also be entered to win a $2000 shopping spree on the site. It only takes a few minutes, just be sure to have a measuring tape (and your lust list) on hand!
