Abstract

Several applications of deep learning, such as image classification and retrieval, recommendation systems, and especially image synthesis, are of great interest to the fashion industry. Recently, image generation of clothes gained lot of popularity as it is a very challenging task that is far from being solved. Additionally, it would open lots of possibilities for designers and stylists enhancing their creativity. For this reason, in this paper we propose to tackle the problem of style transfer between two different people wearing different clothes. We draw inspiration from the recent StarGANv2 architecture that reached impressive results in transferring a target domain to a source image and we adapted it to work with fashion images and to transfer clothes styles. In more detail, we modified the architecture to work without the need of a clear separation between multiple domains, added a perceptual loss between the target and the source clothes, and edited the style encoder to better represent the style information of target clothes. We performed both qualitative and quantitative experiments with the recent DeepFashion2 dataset and proved the efficacy and novelty of our method.
