In this paper, we propose a system named "Virtual Stylist", which aims to help users find out their favorite clothes, which might fit them well. The system is composed of 3 parts as follows, 1) searching clothes in consideration of their color scheme harmonies and image sensations, 2) adopting rules for evaluating color scheme image sensations to a specific user's feeling of color images, 3) virtual fitting system. The system searches through clothes database for some clothes on the basis of the harmony and sensation of colors that are used in them. In the case that a user require a jacket and pants which she might wear with her own shirt, the system search for some jacket and pants whose colors are in harmony with the color of her shirt and with which the color scheme image sensation seems to fit her imagination of dressing. The system possesses some function so that the rules for evaluating color image sensations, which are controlled by some simple parameters are automatically changed and adjusted to the user's emotion. We achieved a way in which the system is real-time adapted to a user's subjectivity with interactive genetic algorithms.
