The fashion industry is making its mark on the tech industry: it has been rapidly increasing its love for artificial intelligence (AI). Taking a look at the history of AI and fashion, we can see how AI will continue to influence fashion in the future.

Fashion designer Hussein Chalayan created "the tent dress" in 2000 by using 150 hair-thin electronic LEDs that light up sequentially as a skirt. It was one of the first items that introduced an interactive perspective into the world of fashion. In 2003, Levi's partnered with Intel to create a jeans jacket that would lead you to your favorite bar if you held a particular chip close enough to NFC technology. The ultimate goal? To seamlessly integrate tech and clothing so they're indistinguishable from one another. The idea of this integration between clothing and technology is the primary reason why AI will continue to change fashion in the future.

According to a recent McKinsey report, "Today's early adopters [of AI] are focusing on improving existing business models rather than developing entirely new ones -- but it may be only a matter of time before AI enables more radical transformations."   

So how exactly has AI influenced the fashion industry in the present time? Well, two major things have happened since 2015.

1) Startups have been integrating smart technologies into clothing designs that were previously static, allowing for internet connectivity and data capture to become an integral part of clothing. 

2) Google's deep learning algorithm has been used by global leaders, such as LVMH and H&M, to provide fashionistas a way to shop for clothing by just taking a picture of what they want.

In order to create a better shopping experience that generates higher conversions and improves the buying experience, startups have been integrating smart technologies into clothing designs that were previously static. This allows for internet connectivity and data capture to become an integral part of the clothing itself. For example- startup Metail has created 3D scanners which can be linked up with online stores so users can design their own pieces from scratch or choose from pre-designed templates. The technology will measure your body shape automatically to help find clothes that fit you perfectly. 

The fashion industry has changed drastically in the past few years and it's all thanks to AI. While you can't exactly purchase software that will make clothing for you, there are a lot of apps and websites using data analysis to determine what people want to wear next. Take Instagram, for example: when an influencer posts a picture with a certain color palette or style, the algorithm instantly knows which brands' clothes match up well with it and will suggest them accordingly. This information is gathered across social media platforms so each site gets more accurate results over time.

What do you think? Are you ready for the AI-driven future of fashion?

This means we're getting better at predicting trends based on our own pictures. The same goes for our friends, family, and celebrities: if they post enough wearing something specific then eventually we'll all want to wear it too. This is why companies like Amazon are now starting to sell clothes, because they know if something looks good on an influencer the chances of it looking good on you are pretty high.

It was only a matter of time before AI made its way into eCommerce. If anyone could accurately determine what consumers want, it would be Amazon with all their data. And while most people shop on Amazon for everyday necessities anyway, making fashion suggestions makes them even more likely to buy there.   

But they're not just using this information for shopping - AI can actually make designs faster than any human designer ever could. A company called Stitch Fix uses AI to analyze your online profile (pictures) and tells designers which styles should be created. It's like having your own personal stylist who can make you look amazing without any effort on your part.

If this isn't the future of fashion, then I don't know what is. People already buy online because it's more convenient and now we're getting better at it every day. There might even be a day when we can send our pictures to an AI designer for them to tell us exactly what choices to make for our wardrobe.

The business side of this article is about how eCommerce will affect the style industry in general, and how it's shifting towards being more based on data from consumers. The article points out that Amazon has a lot of consumer data through their online shopping site which makes them an ideal candidate for designing clothes that people want to wear.
