12.08.2011 – Press Release

Jessica London®, a plus size women’s fashion brand in the portfolio of Redcats USA’s OneStopPlus Group, announced today that it is the first US apparel brand to feature image recognition technology on its iPhone app. This new enhancement allows customers to snap a photo of any product in the Jessica London® Catalog and instantly shop the outfit/item.
