Client Profile

The application is an online shopping portal which provides a platform for boutiques around all over the US to sell their designer product lines. People from all around the world can shop all the best brick-and-mortar boutiques from this one site. Regardless of where someone lives they can stay in touch and shop their favorite stores. For example a person in Seattle who transfers from Boston can still shop their favorite boutiques on Newberry Street from the Northwest.

Business Situation

Boutiques are small independently owned localized retail shops specializing in gifts, fashionable clothes, and accessories that perfectly match-up with the uniqueness of local surroundings. The owners of these stores take such pride in their offerings; they speak with a true enthusiasm for each and every piece they have chosen for the shelves. It provides a backdrop for the people who want to take some time off in their busy schedule shopping around for their local favorite items.

What they need is that one place where they can shop all the best items that these boutiques have to offer.
