Product imagery plays a key role in helping visitors experience luxury online. High-quality product images are one thing that keeps shoppers engaged, and has shown to have a direct ability to convert on-site.
Luxury and high-end fashion retailers are figuring out how to signal value through product imagery. The challenge has been trying to best recreate the in-person multi-sensory shopping experience in an online store and understanding how product imagery will help enhance the shopper experience.
The Milaner team and Vue.ai team worked on product imagery solutions that helped display the customer’s products on models.
Milaner is a craftsmanship-driven brand funded and driven by a small team of Italian women who grew up in the epicenter of Italian luxury manufacturing. They specialize primarily in bags and accessories.
Milaner works on a made-to-order model that ensures almost zero waste and is sustainable and aligns financially and ethically with shoppers and manufacturers.

The speed achieved
Milaner primarily sells luxury bags and accessories. While they had good quality photos of their products on their online store, the challenge was that they did not effectively convey all design aspects. Factors like how big a bag is, how long the straps are while on a person, how bulky the bag is when carried, or how easily it can be held were all features the retailer could not convey using basic product images.
One of the biggest challenges in building model images was the prohibitive cost and time for editorial-style photos of every product. Given the wide distribution of teams and artisans, the logistics of arranging for photoshoots were challenging.
Vue.ai’s product imagery solution helped display the customer’s products on models, in this case, bags, from basic product photos as inputs. The e-commerce site currently hosts one model image, which functions as the primary image, in addition to a few non-model images of the product.
VueModel is Vue.ai’s product imagery solution. It automates the creation of on-model imagery. Using AI, VueModel transforms basic product photos into high-quality fashion imagery that retailers can use across their platforms.
AI can enable automated on-model product imagery. With inputs of a product image and model images, AI can create on-model imagery showing the product on models in various poses. It removes the need for elaborate photoshoots involving multiple people.
VueModel, using AI, can build product imagery at five times the speed and 1/4th the cost of traditional photoshoots.
Since AI-generated imagery does not have time and resource restrictions like a model photoshoot, it is a lot more customizable. Retailers can choose from models of different types, ethnicities, sizes, and in many different poses. It gives retailers the flexibility of choosing models and building imagery that would best match their brand personality.
