Currently, with the active development of mobile technologies and the extremely rapid penetration of the mobile Internet, mobile marketing tools have a significant impact on consumer behavior, including the choice of apparel brands. The impact of smartphones and the opportunities they provide has changed the way consumers go from understanding their needs to making a purchase, then interacting with the company.. The formation of a new model of consumer behavior is an integral element of the digital transformation. In such circumstances, it is important to develop measures to engage consumers in the process of interaction with the brand, applying new digital technologies. This paper presents the results of a study of consumer attitudes towards mobile shopping and augmented / virtual reality technologies when choosing and buying clothes/shoes. The study showed that respondents highly appreciated the usefulness of applications when shopping, the ability to quickly make purchases through mobile applications and seriously intended to make purchases through mobile devices, and also showed interest in the application of augmented reality, which would select accessories for clothing and shoes. The interest, trust, and perceived usefulness of the AR / VR technologies capabilities influence behavioral intentions to use such technological innovations. We believe that AR / VR technologies can become a tool for improving customer perception of the shopping experience, as it gives brands new opportunities, helping consumers to remember the brand and build trust in it by providing an exciting interactive experience, evoking emotions and having a deep influence on consciousness and subconscious.

The prerequisites for the development project of site were determined by assessing the opinions of viewers, experts, competitive analysis, and audit of the old site.

Filin Vitaly Yuryevich, Candidate of Psychology, Head of Advertising Department at the “Synergy” University; Leningradsky Ave., 80, bld. G, Moscow, 125190, Russian Federation (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.)

The fear that the younger generation Z does not watch TV and ignores other habitual media is seriously exaggerated. At least, this is evidenced by current studies of media consumption of generations. The main challenge for local and global brands will not be the lack of points of contact with representatives of the new generation, but the ability to make a personal offer for their customers to be personally useful to them, thereby winning their loyalty. The uniqueness of each consumer will become a global driver for the development of products and services, pushing marketing towards more differentiated segmentation, but also towards greater customization and collaboration of brands from a wide variety of markets and trends.
