In the fast-paced world of fashion, staying ahead of the curve—that is, at the forefront of popularity and success—is essential for brands and retailers alike. Technology is one such way to separate a company from its competition, especially in an industry founded in traditional, manual methods. The wholesale fashion industry's evolution in recent years has seen a surge in digitalization, particularly in how brands showcase their collections to potential buyers. Enter ORB, a technology that’s not just changing the game but revolutionizing the way fashion is presented and sold.
Fashion has come a long way from traditional runway shows and printed lookbooks. Today, brands are embracing the benefits of technology to create truly immersive experiences for their customers.

At its core, ORB is an innovative technology that captures advanced images of fashion products.

What sets the ORB apart is its mobility, as these images can be captured by mobile units that easily assemble in your office or showroom.
