A search engine in Fashion and its importance

In the Fashion industry, we most likely meet search engines in online stores to help people find the information they want online using keywords or phrases. The powerful search engine boosts the shopping experience by saving time and getting customers to the right fashion products on your website. So what a quality search engine in the fashion industry should be able to do?

Luigi's Box Search

Luigi’s Box advanced search is a tool based on AI to get the most out of your search. It’s not only a basic default search bar, but an AI-powered site search that can personalize your website to customers’ intent and deal with typos, synonyms, or diacritics. Luigi’s Box Search offers several advanced features, such as an intelligent Autocomplete feature with perfect search-as-you-type functionality where customers get desired results in a split second.

You can promote the products of a specific brand or rank the relevant search results in an order that works best for you and use dynamic filters, where the relevance of filters varies on product categories; for example, customers can filter t-shirts by color, jeans by cut, etc. Even when a customer enters a different product code format, he will get relevant search results thanks to the Smart product codes feature.

An advanced search comes hand in hand with comprehensive Luigi’s Box Analytics. Analytics offers a clear overview of your search performance and gives you an intuitive dashboard with visual feedback without the need of demanding clicks through many reports. With this overview, you will learn more about trends in your search, and how your customers get to your main content. This is the way to make the best customer experience during online shopping.

Best features for the Fashion industry

Every online merchant is looking for the best ways how to enhance their fashion e‑commerce. One such enhancement is an intelligent search engine. What should this engine offer? The answer might be simple – to sell more and therefore increase overall revenue. However, how do you achieve that? Your customers in your fashion store behave in a similar manner as in the physical store. They either look for the type of clothes, for the specific color, or for the exact product.

Fashion is an extraordinary industry, it’s very emotional. Often you cannot describe your preference in words, and that’s where visual search comes in handy in the clothing business. Therefore, you should be able to provide relevant search results within seconds. And that’s where Luigi’s Box will step in and use its artificial intelligence to provide a better shopping experience.

Therefore another great feature is Luigi’s Box Recommender, which recommends other items in stock if the item the customer wants is sold out. Give extra spotlight to new products in product search and increase your sales with novelty preference or remind customers about last seen product to encourage them to purchase anytime they visit your e‑shop.

If your online shop contains a lot of goods and items, you should consider adding Luigi’s Box Product Listing feature to help customers quickly search and give them more information about the entire range of products in one go.

Why visual search matters in Fashion?

With the rise of online shopping, visual search technology represents a massive part of the customer shopping experience. Visual search allows customers to use images, instead of keywords. Especially in the Fashion segment, it’s much easier for website visitors to find pieces of clothing they like by uploading a picture than by describing it with words.

Who uses the visual search the most?

Visual search helps increase revenue, especially in e‑commerce businesses that promote their goods and services on social media. That’s because of Gen Zers, a generation born between 1997 and 2012, on which social media has the most significant impact.
