Our co-located social relationships are changing with the adoption of new technologies. Augmented Reality performed on clothing can bridge the gap between our online social media and our face-to-face interactions. We propose a new system composed of an online application that generates a personalized and artistic design for the user’s clothing based on personal interests extracted from a social network. We also present an AR application to explore this social design and improve icebreaking interactions and connections between strangers in community settings and social gatherings.
