The novelty and strength of our method lies in its capability to recommend similar articles for all the fashion items worn by the model, in addition to the primary article corresponding to the query. This is not only important to promote cross-sells for boosting revenue, but also for improving customer experience and engagement. In addition, our approach is also capable of recommending similar products for User Generated Content (UGC), eg., fashion article images uploaded by users. Formally, our proposed method consists of the following components (in the same order): i) Human keypoint detection, ii) Pose classification, iii) Article localisation and object detection, along with active learning feedback, and iv) Triplet network based image embedding model.
