To see ourselves as others see us!

When Robert Burns in 1786 wrote:

Oh, would some Power give us the gift
To see ourselves as others see us!
It would from many a blunder free us,
And foolish notion:
What airs in dress and gait would leave us,
And even devotion!

Being an AI blog you may be wondering why I’m waxing lyrical? Well, I thought it a fitting (excuse the pun) introduction to an AI powered app which aims to place us in the clothes we look to buy on the Internet.

As Burns aptly put it, “It would from many a blunder free us!” Additionally, reduce the number of returns which is both costly and worrysome in these Covid days.

However, the Iconoclast in me speculates on whether the tech guys have really understood clothes shopping? Surely it’s largely a mixture of aspiration and vanity? We like to think of ourselves looking like how the clothes are modelled and maybe less of how they actually look on us.

Anyone interested in how they look in various clothing styles should checkout the Zeekit website.
