Designed and developed a bikini bridal swimwear website on Shopify.
La Chenille is a luxury bridal bikini swimwear brand that caters to brides who want to feel glamorous by the beach, pool, or any destination place to wear a bikini.
The client wanted a visually focused website displaying large hi-res images of their products.
As the account representative for this project I was responsible for all communication with the client from development to post launch. I had weekly meetings with the clients to review my progress and to ensure I was staying on target on their goals and needs.
The client had low-fi mockups of the layout they had in mind for the website. After reviewing these I researched templates similar to the mockups that we could purchase and implement for their Shopify store. I presented three similar templates and explained the pros and cons once they agreed on using Blockshop I was able to start development.
Although I built the website using Blockshop, there were a few features the client wanted that needed customization and plugin integrations.
The largest customization was integrating a pre-order feature. Many of the products are made to order so they needed a pre-order system in place for customers to pre-order items and have them made after the purchase.
The Shopify drag and drop feature only works for the home or index page. This was something that came to a surprise to me and this was the first Shopify website I've ever built.
The client wanted other pages that behaved similar to the home page so I had to custom build the pages using the Shopify code editior and building new page templates for them to be able to edit the content on the user friendly drag and drop mode.
