RFID Application Cases in Apparel and Retailer
1. Luxury brand Prada
Since November 2001, the well-known Italian clothing brand Prada Advanced Clothing Group has installed RFID tags on clothing, which records the style, size, color and other details and price information of the clothing.
Whenever a customer wears Prada clothes passing through their store, the RFID system controls the store to display a picture of a model showing the same clothes on the T-stage in Milan.
This application of RFID technology has greatly enhanced consumers' sense of accomplishment after purchasing Prada products.
