[Image 1:] ■“FaceChange” service overview
By replacing the faces of models and staff coordination with the user’s own face, this service clarifies the image when worn and encourages online product purchases. This eliminates the anxiety users have when purchasing clothes online, such as not knowing whether they will suit them or not.
You can easily display a banner on the item details screen by simply inserting the tag provided by our company. This function can also be applied to staff coordination within an EC site. By utilizing the mechanism of the size recommendation engine “unisize”, which was independently developed by Makeip and is expanding its market, users will be able to extract and select coordinated images of body types that are similar to their own. By combining the FaceChange function with coordination images selected by staff members with similar body types to the user, users can enjoy a more familiar and informative trying-on experience on the e-commerce site.

In addition, with the start of full-scale sales, we have added a new function that allows users to freely select model product images to be composited, which was highly requested by users. With this function, users can now freely select and combine the colors and patterns of the products they want to match.

[User’s voice]
I could imagine myself wearing it and wanted to try other colors. (Female in her 30s)
It was a natural composite image that didn’t look out of place, so it was good to be able to see how it would look when worn. (Female in her 60s)
The image is easy to get excited about, but I felt it would be even better if the body shape could be changed to suit me. (Female in her 40s)
*Survey period is 4/11 to 4/15, 559 responses, survey for first-time users of FaceChange
We have received the opinion that it would be better if the image could be created based on the user’s body shape, and we will continue to use the feedback from apparel e-commerce personnel and users, including collaboration with the size recommendation service “unisize.” We will consider developing additional functions and improving the synthesis quality.
■The future that FaceChange aims for
This service was born out of the desire to provide a user-centered online purchasing experience, precisely because we live in an era where users buy clothes based on what suits them.
In recent years, the development of IT technology has been remarkable, and we are now living in a world where many things that were previously impossible can be achieved.
Apparel e-commerce continues to expand, and in this era where buying clothes online has become a daily routine for many people, we must continue to provide users with a higher quality purchasing experience that always incorporates the latest technology. I think that is important.
In the future, we will continue to consider updates that will include improving compositing accuracy using the latest technology and making this service compatible with videos. Through this service, we will support making apparel EC a more fun and exciting place for more people.
