Hierarchical Fashion Graph Network for Personalized Outfit Recommendation

1 code implementation26 May 2020 Xingchen Li, Xiang Wang, Xiangnan He, Long Chen, Jun Xiao, Tat-Seng Chua

Fashion outfit recommendation has attracted increasing attentions from online shopping services and fashion communities. Distinct from other scenarios (e. g., social networking or content sharing) which recommend a single item (e. g., a friend or picture) to a user, outfit recommendation predicts user preference on a set of well-matched fashion items. Hence, performing high-quality personalized outfit recommendation should satisfy two requirements -- 1) the nice compatibility of fashion items and 2) the consistence with user preference.
