"This is a real ground breaking moment for both Blippar and New Look. Being able to work with the New Look team on creating some exciting and engaging content for its customers to interact with whilst they shop brings a whole new dimension to browsing. The window display looks fantastic and we can't wait to see it rolled out across other New Look stores. Having Kelly Brook involved in this too just adds to the excitement."
