Top 25 Customization Concepts in August

From Modular Bag Systems to Fragrance Blending Kits

— August 26, 2017 — Art & Design
From small accessories like smartwatch straps to large-scale home constructions, the top August 2017 customization ideas showcase how consumers want to have a hand in product creation, especially when it comes to finished looks and functions.

Customization is now becoming the norm across the fashion industry, with everything from footwear and bags to apparel offering modular or transformative elements. Although there are plenty of universal emojis to express one's feelings at any given moment, consumers are looking for more personalized means of expression with hyper-personalized stickers and messaging tools.

Consumers are also seeking out kits and product systems that allow them to build their own products, such as Demeter's Foolproof Blending Trio for crafting bespoke fragrances and NuAns NEO Reloaded, which is a smartphone with a fully customizable back component.
