About Zalora
ZALORA is an online fashion retailer that believes in making fashion accessible. It is the core of our business – we bring high-street labels to Asia in a convenient way. Secretly, we are tech geeks who love numbers and codes as much as affordable fast-fashion. Our passion for all things sartorial and digital, coupled with our dedication to our customers, define everything that we do. ZALORA Scholars will get the opportunity to gain valuable insights from the e-commerce industry.
Redefining The Future of Shopping
This year’s theme is how to redesign the online shopping experience for your generation of shoppers. Explore how your shopping experience will change in ten years time, both online and offline.
Fashion trends have always been guided by current situations, political, cultural, geographical influences and the needs of the society. Fashion-driven ZALORA is focused on constantly exploring and forecasting how technology and societal changes interact to shape each other.
Through an essay, video, or infographic, predict post-millennial consumption styles based on your perceptions and analysis on factors such as shifts in social media usage, societal changes, technological changes, or any other insights you have.
Essays should be between 500 words to 800 words long. Files should be titled in this format: eg) Ana_RMIT_Vietnam_Essay. The maximum size for all files is 2MB.
Send us your compelling insights based on the above theme by 30th September 2017, 11pm Malaysia time (GMT +8) and you might be the next ZALORA Scholar!
