Fashion is a field at the border of art and industry, combining elements of creative spontaneity in a unexpected ways, based on various sources of inspiration. It takes a human to create a clothing and a celebrity to make it fashionable. Real fashion world, designers and creative consumers (street fashion) provide an eclectic ever-changing content that science and technology are trying to optimize in order to increase sales and decrease the waste of over-production. In this talk we provide an overview of fashion big data problems: forecasting fashion trends, influencer analytics, visual search, natural language processing, style recommendation algorithms and the need to understand the natural life-cycle of a fashion garment before applying science in order to accelerate or alter it.
