Concept Store Showcasing Alibaba's FashionAI Technology has been Set Up

On July 04, 2018, Alibaba launched the pilot FashionAI concept shop on the Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) campus, pairing Guess' extensive retail knowledge and latest collections with advanced Alibaba AI and other technologies on the sidelines of the 2018 Fashion and Textile Conference. The FashionAI concept store featured smart racks, smart mirrors, and next-generation fitting rooms. Alibaba'sFashionAI system underpins the stores, offering up mix-and-match clothing and accessory suggestions for customers from the Guess' line, as well as items sold by others on Tmall and Taobao, China's biggest B2C and C2C platforms, respectively. Users checked in to the store with their mobile Taobao QR code and all the items displayed in-store came with corresponding Taobao product listings, so that users could add the items they would like to purchase directly to their Taobao cart.
