Before we go to far into explaining the benefits of QR codes for the fashion industry, let's first figure out what the meaning of "QR Codes". So, what is a QR code?

According to the Denso Wave official website (November 2011), "The QR code was a kind of two dimensional symbology, and the DENSO WAVE (established under the name of DENSO) developed with a main objective of "Code read easily for the reader" in 1994. The QR code is that carry meaningful information in the vertical direction as well as the horizontal, hence the two-dimensional term. By carrying information in both directions, QR code can carry up to several hundred times the amount of data carried by an ordinary bar codes."

According to Wikipedia (November 2011 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code), "A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data (e.g., binary, alphanumeric, or Kanji symbols). Created by Toyota subsidiary Denso Wave in 1994 to track vehicles during the manufacturing process, the QR code is one of the most popular types of two-dimensional barcodes. It was designed to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed."

QR Codes are a rather interesting technology that can be used by the fashion industry in many ways. These codes can be utilized on packaging such as gift boxes, shelf trays, etc. They can also be easily utilized on hangtags and price tickets.
In addition to being used on apparel and accessory packaging and trims, the QR codes can actually be used directly on certain types of clothing. For example, QR codes can be printed and read properly from t-shirts and sweatshirts.
Here are a few QR code images for your reference. If your mobile phone supports an app with a QR code reader, you can scan these images directly from your computer monitor (make sure to only scan one at a time in your reader).
