Abstract:

This paper presents an approach to identify apparel silhouettes. A feature region of the human face was first proposed for conducting face detection in fashion pictures with the AdaBoost method, and the head was then located with its positional relation to the facial feature region. The linear relationship between the ratio of the body height to head length and the length of the lower body was ensured by restricting the RBH to a specific range. Under this condition, the apparelled body was divided into several parts, and the boundary of apparel on the lower body was determined considering the influence of the hemline. Based on the widths of the body parts and the apparel on the lower body, shape factors were established to express the extent to which the apparel silhouette approached a certain shape. A computer program was developed for implementation and demonstrated high accuracy in silhouette identification of an appareled body.
