Virtual fitting room Metail has recently closed on a $12 million funding round, adding to $8 million raised since being founded in 2008.

 

Metail, one of the ideaSpace City site alumni firms, allows you to create a 3D version of yourself so you can shop online and virtually try on clothes.

Using just a few simple measurements, Metail is able to deliver a 94-96% accurate 3D model of you, called a MeModel, complete with hairstyle and skin tone. More and more people are experimenting with how new styles and clothes would look on their MeModel from the comfort of their own home.

The lead investor in this new round is TAL Apparel, of Hong Kong-based TAL Group, a global leader in garment manufacturing.

Tom Adeyoola, co-founder and CEO, said the long-term vision is for Metail is to become the ‘Google of sizing and shape’.
