The 'Snap Fashion' app helps you find the cute outfit that you just spotted someone else wearing. Using a picture of the piece you want to buy, Snap Fashion automatically finds retailers where you can purchase the item. The app uses image recognition software to find the exact item that you're looking for so that you don't have to spend months looking for it. As a result, you can begin to dress like your favorite celebrity or imitate a fashionable stranger you spotted on the street.

Snap Fashion works by letting you take a photo with your phone for analysis. Your photo is then cross-referenced with a database of images from brands such as Uniqlo, Topshop, Gap and French Connection. If the app can't find you a match, it recommends similar pieces with the same style.
