Imagine you have your designated personal stylist. Your stylist is an app - an app capable of casting to a television screen. Whatever works for you, the latter part is not necessary, you might be okay with seeing yourself just on a smart phone with no larger screen acting as a faux mirror.
The app is there to "find" you your style. Your brand. Style and branding is intentional, and creating an aware unique style is one of the surest way to land a good first impression. Impression matters. Impression can land you your job, Can land you a spouse. Can create opportnities you did not know existed. Asides that, a good style is cool!
So how does the app work?
The app sweeps the latest trend of clothing styles and combinations on the internet, especially on image-oriented sites such as Instagram and Pinterest. There are different names or categories for a group of styles. If the algorithm has a solid unsupervised learning framework, or a semi-supervised one (whatever works in this case), then we could have a list of categories before we begin browsing through combinations.
This way, first, a user can choose between a plethora of common categories such as Minimalist, Retro, Old Fashioned, Chic., Bohemian, Sexy, Artsy, Casual etc, etc.
Once a category is chosen, the user can go through the combinations suggested to pick a style to their taste. The AI stylist tries different available combinations of styles on the user's full portrait so the user can see what style suits them best.
To give the user more control, they might be able to play with a lot of features and accessories to see what works for them or matches their skin tone, profile and body type.
More control options might.be available, like options to change colors for clothes with plain colors, or options to experiment with hairstyles.
AI has come a long way but this would require some really good advancement in technology. I doubt this would be achievable the way I'd love it for be: perfect for its intended audience. There are few existing underwhelming versions of this, and even then, most of them are more concerned about the existing clothes in your closet. Doesn't exactly work for my required type of audience. Especially when you could just as easily try on those clothes instead of taking pictures of them to see if they fit!
The app would be perfect for:
People with zero to no fashion sense
People looking to explore
And lastly, for people like me, who quite have the money to get good clothes, but don't know the right clothes to buy.
Instead of getting a costly stylist, why not get a personal one that gives you a chance to explore tons of options without pressure?
