Creator Studio, H&M Group’s global, on-demand printing service for the modern merchandising industry, today announces the launch of the Group’s first application of AI: a generative AI-powered clothing creation tool.
Launched in 2021, Creator Studio’s proprietary tech offers its creators – including artists, labels, licensees, and members of the public – a qualitative end-to-end solution for bespoke clothing printing and fulfilment.
The new text-to-image merch-creation tool uses AI to transform written prompts into mocked-up apparel, printed with custom visual artwork in a variety of preset styles. This can then be sold or purchased instantly and is fulfilled fast and sustainably through H&M Group’s global printing and logistics infrastructure.
Dinesh Nayar, Managing Director of Creator Studio, comments: “Our mission at Creator Studio is to empower and enable any Creator to express themselves through merch. Finding new ways to reduce any obstacles for our customers to create content is what we relentlessly explore and integrating a seamless AI artwork creation tool is a natural step for us to take on this journey.”
The 2024 Creative Retail Awards are open for entries.
The Creative Retail Awards are much more than a mere accolade; they represent the pinnacle of achievement in the retail industry. Garnering a nomination or winning one of these awards is a testament to innovation, excellence, and leadership.
All AI-generated artwork is printed on Creator Studio’s dedicated clothing range, True Blanks, which offers a constantly growing selection of designs across men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, and accessories.
True Blanks garments are made with 100% organic cotton or with recycled polyester. All True Blanks garments are the result of rigorous R&D processes to optimise them for best-in-class quality printing results. Digital printing direct to garment produces intricate, detailed designs to extreme clarity with water-based inks, which are less harmful to the environment than conventional screen printing.
