A designer in flesh and bones - Anna Yang, the founder and creative director of Annakiki, and an App: the unprecedented collaboration between the "human factor" and AI has thus given life to the first fashion collection created with artificial intelligence. Previewed worldwide in Milan by the Chinese tech giant Huawei, the capsule collection "Annakiki for Huawei" is the output of the Fashion Flair App, which was "trained" with tens of thousands of fashion images of the last 100 years and with a series of shots taken from the latest Annakiki collections.
After combining this information, the App suggested various outfits, which then became the starting point and inspiration for the designer to create the twenty items that make up the collection. The purpose? To show that AI and human creativity do not replace each other: rather, artificial intelligence can help the creative process.
Part of the proceeds from the sale of the capsule collection will finance a special project supporting the young talents of the Italian Academy of Fashion Design, allowing students to use the App to create new outfits.
