Well, that was just the tip of the iceberg that took center stage during September’s fashion showcases. From Hillary Taymour’s AI creations at New York Fashion Week to the custom AI designs by Acne Studio in Paris, AI is making waves in the fashion world.

Looking ahead, AI is set to inject $150 to $275 billion into the profits of the apparel, fashion and luxury sectors in the next three to five years, promising greater inclusivity, sustainability and creativity.

AI’s influence is multifaceted, spanning from personalized styling and optimized supply chains to AI-driven designs and creativity. Here are five ways AI is influencing fashion.

1. Personalized Styling And Recommendations

Personalization stands at the forefront of modern retail, with 73% of customers expecting brands to understand their individual tastes and preferences. Here, AI can be pivotal in delivering tailored styling and recommendations.

For instance, Stitch Fix uses AI to craft personalized style profiles, gathering 90 specific data points via a detailed survey. This includes style preferences, dress size, height and location, enabling algorithms to rank and recommend clothing items tailored to individual tastes.

Meanwhile, Styleriser, a B2B German company, leverages AI to offer personalized image consulting solutions, acting as a digital shopping assistant by recommending ideal colors based on individual skin tones.

As per Segment’s 2023 report, 56% of customers are more likely to become repeat buyers with personalized experiences. It highlights that customer loyalty hinges on brand experiences, which can be improved using AI.

2. Achieving Sustainability

The fashion industry grapples with a hefty 186 billion pounds of textile waste annually, and 87% of all material used ends up in landfills or incinerators. Addressing this wastage

WATCH: New long COVID guidance aims to help doctors identify mental health symptoms

As millions of Americans seek answers about long COVID, a recent advisory from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is giving physicians better guidance on how to identify mental health symptoms that may stem from the condition.

These new guidelines, released in June, as part of the Biden’s administrations action plan for long COVID research, provide a framework that can help physicians, patients, and providers to better understand the mental health symptoms — anxiety, fatigue, obsessive compulsive disorder and post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), among others — associated with long COVID.

“They validate and create categories for these conditions, and then provide some kind of guidance about how to manage them,” said Dr. Serena S. Spudich, a professor of neurology at Yale School of Medicine.

“We are really focused on continuing to prioritize the treatment, the identification and treatment of people who have long COVID, particularly who are dealing with these mental and behavioral health symptoms, because they can be very debilitating and people with long COVID need help now,” said Molly Sanborn, a Public Health Analyst at SAMHSA.

PBS NewsHour digital anchor Nicole Ellis spoke with public health analyst Molly Sanborn and Dr. Serena S. Spudich about long COVID’S impact on mental health. Watch the conversation in the player above.

Dr. Spudich said that the symptoms of long COVID can be characterized as what was traditionally thought of as psychiatric or psychological, and then there are others that are neurological. In most cases, she says, these conditions are overlapping — for instance, depression and brain fog.

What Health Conditions Can Your Apple Watch Help You Monitor?

While your Apple Watch makes it easy to make calls, check your messages, and access many of your phone’s essential features on the go, it’s a far more powerful tool than you may have realized. Apple provides a potentially life-saving suite of features that offer access to vital information about your health, much of it in real-time.


We take a look at the wide range of health conditions your Apple Watch can help you monitor.

Heart Health

An average healthy adult’s heart will beat more than 100,000 times. And Apple has a suite of heart rate features that not only measure those heartbeats but will also provide insights into the health picture they provide.

Resting Heart Rate

Your Apple Watch will track your heart rate constantly as you wear it. You can check this anytime using the Heart Rate app on your watch. Look for the icon with a white heart on a red button. This gives access to your current heart rate, along with resting, walking, workout, and recovery rates for the day.

You’ll be able to analyze this data and detailed breakdowns of all the other health metrics covered within this list in the Health app on your iPhone.

High and Low Heart Rate Notifications

Your Apple Watch can notify you if your heart rate stays above or below your selected beats per minute (bpm) as long as you have turned on notifications within the Apple Watch Heart Rate app or via the Apple Watch app on your iPhone.

I can attest to how valuable this tool is. Recently, a family member with a history of heart issues received this notification from their Apple Watch while attending a big sporting event. They took a few moments to recover,
