Experts predict that digital revenue in the U.S. for the 2021 holiday season will surpass the $200 billion mark for the first time ever. And when consumers do go online, they’ll enjoy a vastly different experience as retailers elevate their e-commerce sites to include immersive, interactive, 3D experiences. Front and center in that effort is Neha Singh, who is combining her expertise in engineering and fashion to reinvent the way brands engage and consumers shop.

Singh is the former Google software engineer, fashion design student, Vogue executive and now founder and CEO of Obsess.

“This is about increasing the ROI on your retail real estate because now so many more people can visit the store even if they can’t make it to New York City,” says Singh. “All the effort that the virtual merchandising teams are putting in is now being experienced by a much broader audience.”

Opening Retailers’ Doors to The Metaverse
