Design Opportunity

Girl Scouts and FIT fashion students have been working together to design a new uniform that appeals to Gen Z, but the in-person launch got cancelled due to COVID-19.

Develop a new digital experience to launch the new Girl Scouts uniform online.

Design Challenge

Most older Girl Scouts feel uncomfortable wearing the uniform in public due to all the “requests for cookies” they get as a tease.

How might we launch the new girl scout uniform online in a seamless manner that appeals to Cadettes and above?


Create a live fashion experience using live streaming and 3D fashion rendering, and turn Girl Scouts into a lifestyle brand that all teenage girls can relate to.

Process Highlights

Desk Research

We conducted extesive research to understand our target audience, teenage girls from 12 to 18 years old.

Behavioural findings
  • They enjoy hanging out with friends, playing video games, and watching shows.
  • They worry about school grades, keeping up with everything, and maintaining relationship with friends.
We used Miro as a tool for remote collaboration with the team.
say their favorite technology is their phone.
of teens in the US are digital video viewers of gaming, celebrity streaming, user generated videos and more.
of 13-to-17s said social made them “feel more connected to their friends.”

Empathy Interviews

We conducted 11 interviews with teenage girls between the ages of 12 and 18 years old. Due to the Covid pandemic circumstances these interviews were conducted online.

Affinity Mapping

We took the data from the empathy interviews and organized them into overlapping categories to discover essential user needs.

Affinity Map Findings
  • Their future and social life have top priority.
  • Social media helps them express themselves, and serves as an extension of their social life.
  • Video games and shows are top indoor activities. Digital interaction rates higher than passive activities like tv and reading.

Aggregated Personas

We developed three personas that incapsulated the audience that Girl Scouts wanted to reach through their uniform launch.

Clothes that she can use in her school as well as part of her active lifestyle.

Teenage girls use clothes as a form of self expression, and if wearing a Girl Scout stood for more than just selling cookies than all girls, not only Girl Scout, would wear it.

Nothing is impossible. The word itself says possible.”

Create a live fashion experience using live streaming and 3D fashion rendering, and turn Girl Scouts into a lifestyle brand that all teenage girls can relate too, not only Girl Scouts.

Using the hashtag #GSStyle girls can post their new combination outfits with GSStyle items and express their creativity while they relate to brand that is focused to empowering the female leaders of tomorrow.

Online experience


Girl Scouts’ new collection was an assembly of items that could be purchased singularly or by looks. The collection had 8 main looks featured in the shopping page, as well as option to shop each item separately.

3D Models

To make the transition form a physical launch to an online launch less seamless we incorporated 3D models of the girls in the new GS uniform.

The user is indicated to interact with the 3D model with the hand at the bottom center of the model. The 3D renders were captured using a multicamera dome that takes 69 images of the subject located in the center of the dome, and incorporated into the website using Sketchfab.

gs lIVE

In collaboration with fashion editor, Jazmin Whitley, who is a Girl Scout alumnI, we launched a live event with tips and tricks on how to style the items for everyday purposes, and even how to match them with thing you already own in your wardrobe.


Bambuser was the live streaming service of choice as it allows viewers to shop while watching and chatting live.


Teens were invited to show off their style using the hashtag # GSStyle and sharing on social media.

These posts can be used as sponsored social media ads, on all of the existing Girl Scout social media channels, by adding a lead to the Girl Scout e-commerce website.

gs sTYLE

An opportunity for Girl Scouts to share with the world their unique approach to the 2020 uniform, and celebrate their collaboration with FIT.


This is the fiRst unifoRm in the history of Girl Scouts that it’s sold as unique items without any strict instruction on how to wear it or where to wear it, allowing for infinite self expression.
