Improving search experience with a taxonomy in the fashion domain


Farfetch is the leading global technology platform for the luxury fashion industry. The talk will show Farfetch’s experience in adopting a taxonomy in the fashion domain and how it was applied to improve semantic search methods in our e-commerce search. We’ll show the challenges we’ve had and how we’ve used the fashion taxonomy in our query expansion module to improve search results. In addition, analyzing search usage logs, we will show how we were able to suggest additional examples to the taxonomy development.
