In this paper we tackle the problem of clothing parsing: Our goal is to segment and classify different garments a person is wearing. We frame the problem as the one of inference in a pose-aware Conditional Random Field (CRF) which exploits appearance, figure/ground segmentation, shape and location priors for each garment as well as similarities between segments, and symmetries between different human body parts. We demonstrate the effectiveness of our approach on the Fashionista dataset and show that we can obtain a significant improvement over the state-of-the-art.
