Ok, raise your hand.

 

Have you ever bought clothes online thinking they would look flawless on you and then they arrive, you try them on, and you find out they make you look like a potato? 

 

The crowd screams: Guilty.

 

Have you ever gone on an online shopping spree and then sigh and empty the basket because you know there's no way you can tell if the garment will really fit you?

 

The crowd screams: Guilty.

 

Have you ever thought of how much time you could save (especially if you live in a big city) or how many brand options you could have (if your town has a lack of choices) if there was an effective and trust worthy system to figure out what pieces you should buy online without wasting another week with returns and frustration?

 

Guilty, guilty, guilty.

 

Well 2017 might just be our lucky year.

 

Fashion brands around the world are developing a system that will be able to predict if a pair of trousers, a shirt, a dress, a blazer, etc. fits us, our body type, height and general complexion. 

 

It will almost be like having a personal stylist at our finger tips to recommend us pieces and outfits. They want to go as far as taking into consideration our face, hair, eye colour and skin tone. And we will get all of this input from the confort of our homes.

 

It sounds good, right?

 

If this type of programming is used with the intention of providing a service and not with the idea of pushing the brands that bid higher to the potential customers, I think it could as groundbreaking as the semantic web was almost a decade ago.

 

What do you think about this? Is it something you would be willing to try? Let me know in the comments below.
