Upstyle is an image-assisted text-to-image AI tool that allows you to create fashion pieces with more accuracy
The current AI generative tools, e.g., Midjourney are mostly biased and struggle to generate images with high accuracy. While they can be useful for creative brainstorming, they often off the trail for users with specific design objectives.
There are two main reasons for this. Firstly, Midjourney's AI model was trained on an extensive dataset of images, resulting in biased output. Additionally, users are typically non-professionals and may struggle to formulate accurately structured prompts for descriptions.
Therefore, Upstyles aims to address the accuracy issue in generating fashion pieces. In this project, we focus on the use case of 'Redesigning unworn garments' to demonstrate the image-to-image generation logic.
