“Today we will start another battle in the form of reaching out to our potential buyers. The first step is to share our vision with as many people as possible Is to explain our assets and team, because we still believe. ”So, the way Ardamiz took was to sell his services. Ardamiz explains the unique technology of Chicisimo as follows:

The core of the reason why Chicisimo has become popular and widely used is the system of “classifying clothes and understanding user preferences”. In the past, the criteria for classifying clothes were ambiguous. Ardamiz and his colleagues have built a system that automatically recognizes, manages, and executes the similarities and correlations of retailers dealing with fashion products. In addition, the system reflects the analysis of trends in millions of fashion products uploaded to the system by Chicisimo users and the fashion products that users often wear, so it is recommended according to user preferences. It was said that it was possible to organize and display fashion products. Ardamiz describes the system as 'a brain that understands clothes'.

The system organizes and classifies each fashion product as metadata. This meta product has attributes such as fashion product color, clothing type, collar shape, atmosphere, application, size and material. For example, for a black school sweater, a set of metadata such as black + sweater + V-neck + casual + school + size 42 + cashmere will be created. Fashion products themselves are short-lived, but collecting metadata of fashion products is useful for understanding trends in user preferences.

Ardamiz says Chicisimo is like

Spotify for music distribution services and Netflix for video distribution services.
