Beyond Algorithms:The Explicit Value of Human Fashion Expertise

As technology continues to evolve and more and more people are exposed to AI (Artificial Intelligence), I want to explore the dynamic world where AI intersects with personal style. Let’s dive into the fascinating realm where technology and fashion collide, discovering the strengths of AI while contemplating its limitations.

Color Analysis:Beyond the Surface

Have you come across those AI apps that promise to show you the perfect color palette? They’re popular, but do they really capture your essence?

The magic of AI lies in the data you provide, such as the photos you upload. But what if the image quality isn’t top-notch? The results are unlikely to be inaccurate. Also, color analysis is only as good as the system it uses – how many palettes did they compare? The reason I went beyond the seasons and developed an absolute color system with 18 palettes is because I found the existing systems to be lacking, they are also based on white skin (which is historically what white people developed), and they don’t take into account how colors change with age. The 8 billion people on this planet don’t need to find their ideal color palette – you often get the least bad palette, not the one that suits you best.

Also, the AI doesn’t know if the color of hair you’ve dyed suits your skin tone, it just uses the information it has to give you a palette. I can often tell you that when someone’s hair color is off, it’s easy to get their undertones wrong if you’re not careful because the hair dominates what you notice and what you see – so if the color matches the hair, we think it’s right, but when you take the hair out of that balance, you can determine the true undertone, which is sometimes the opposite of the dyed hair color.

My online color analysis technique is more complicated. It’s more than just a photo; I rely on a series of carefully captured images to decode your true spectrum. However, artificial intelligence models use only one photo. My process involves you and your preferences; the AI treats you as if you have no personality and no point of view.

Additionally, AI color analysis doesn’t tell you how to wear your colors, how to match your colors together, or any of the other really useful information my clients get in their personal color analysis sessions. Having information and knowing how to use it are two different things.

Style Advice:The Efforts of AI

Of course, artificial intelligence will lend a hand in your online shopping adventures by recommending items based on your description.b Google is your trusted assistant, right? It’s a great tool for finding a brown leather jacket or navy blue boots, but it’s not always so great at doing other things.

However, let’s pause for a moment. Artificial intelligence isn’t exactly the style guru we’d like it to be. It has a hard time interpreting your body type as accurately as a seasoned stylist.

I’ll always remember going to a “road show” with a well-known stylist who used AI to determine body type. I could see with my own eyes that the volunteer to be styled didn’t have a defined waistline, but the AI body calculator put her in an a-shaped box because that’s what her measurements indicated. This is why I don’t use measurements, they are inaccurate and there are guidelines whether you are deciding on a body shape or a face shape, but experience has taught me that there is more than just a number to consider.

Human Factors vs. Artificial Intelligence Methods

Defining your nuances

1. your personal style transcends the scale; it reflects your preferences, traits, and values.

2. artificial intelligence cannot engage you in a conversation about your values or your comfort zone. It’s like trying to guess your friend’s favorite ice cream flavor without asking them.

3. artificial intelligence will not build a relationship with you, yes it will become more accurate over time as it learns more about you, but it’s only as good as the information you input. A real personal stylist has a real body in the real world with real people, they are all unique. There are countless different body shapes, proportions and variations, and then how you feel about each one – what you want to emphasize, what you want to camouflage – are beyond the scope of our current artificial intelligence, but a good personal stylist can easily understand and help you in no time.

The Image Consultation Connection

An ongoing conversation with a personal stylist has tremendous value. It’s more than just talk; it’s a collaborative journey to unlock your true style potential.

Together, you and your stylist can overcome fashion dilemmas. There is a difference between “technical perfection” and human preference. Whether it’s a personal preference for 3/4 sleeves, even though short sleeves look great on you, or you don’t like low necklines or will never wear skinny jeans. It could also be that you feel hot all the time and need to be able to get dressed and undressed easily. Or maybe you feel cold and need to layer your style, but don’t want to be the Michelin Man in the process.

The potential of artificial intelligence and its current limitations

Ongoing experiments

1. artificially intelligent shopping tools or fashion advice? They may occasionally hit the mark, but usually they just shoot in the dark.

2. you’ve probably tried those AI-generated fashion subscription boxes – some surprises, some failures. The root cause? Artificial intelligence can’t grasp the intricate essence of your personal style.

The information that stores use AI to recommend to you may be incorrect, and yes, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen “this dress fits H, X, and O shapes” when the dress has a very pronounced waistline and would look terrible on H and O shapes. But the unlucky shopper who doesn’t know this information thinks it must be correct because they don’t have enough fashion knowledge to make an informed choice (which is why I’m so keen to give you an education in color and style so you can be your own best expert and see through the bad advice).

1. contextual understanding:While AI can process numbers and data, it can struggle to understand the emotional and cultural significance of certain clothing choices or styles.

2. personality nuances:AI may not always be able to capture the nuances that make your style truly yours, resulting in suggestions that, while popular, may not align with your unique sense of fashion.

3.Fashion Evolution:Fashion trends are fluid and constantly changing. AI may lag behind in keeping up with the most current trends and street style influences.

Navigating the Future:The Evolution and Transcendence of Artificial Intelligence

The future and potential of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is a game changer, it can transcribe videos, simplify tasks and make our lives easier (it can also provide 10 headlines for this blog post in seconds). I can only see it getting better and better, with fewer and fewer mistakes (I had it write a biography of me, and it made me the author of a book I know I didn’t write …… That’s an easy fact for it to check, but it’s wrong). However, it can’t quite replicate the role of a real stylist.

Artificial intelligence is learning, adapting and growing. Who knows? It may become a force to be reckoned with in fashion, but until then, the human touch still reigns supreme.

Humanization:Why it still matters

1. Empathy and intuition:Humans have an innate ability to understand the emotional aspects of fashion choices. Artificial intelligence algorithms cannot replicate a stylist’s method of empathy.

2. Adaptability:Stylists can immediately adjust their recommendations based on your immediate needs and reactions, making real-time adjustments that may be difficult for AI to do. I use what I see in my clients’ facial expressions and body language to help them. Artificial intelligence can’t do that.

3.Artistry:Fashion is an art form and stylists bring their artistic talents to the table. They can create unique outfits that reflect your personality and the occasion, beyond the data-driven suggestions of AI.

4. Everyday Dress:What do you choose to wear every day? Is it based on mood? Occasions or events? Weather? Location? Physical needs? When you put your outfits together on a daily basis, you need to consider a lot of considerations and other things, from how you feel to what you’re doing, and AI isn’t in your closet putting together an outfit for you, from shoes to jewelry. AI doesn’t understand that what may have been fine yesterday may not fit today.

Embrace your journey

Artificial intelligence adds some magic (and possibly speed) to the styling journey, but it can’t replace your personal stylist or the human touch. Revel in the process of discovering your unique fashion identity and finding your style – it’s your story to tell.

Remember, personal style is more than looks; it’s about confidence, authenticity and self-expression.

Knowing more about what works for you and what doesn’t means you can utilize artificial intelligence and know when it’s going to throw you off track. It’s easy to make a lot of mistakes when shopping because you don’t know what’s best for you, and those mistakes can quickly add up and end up costing you a lot of money.
