Hi, I'm Aya from Belgrade ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Hi everyone! Iโ€™m so glad I made it here and thank you @fbetteo for the invite.
I was curious about this platform for a long time, I think it has a huge potential as a cool social media alt, and I hope I will not disappoint with my WIP ๐Ÿซก

What are you working on these days?


#fashn - a virtual try-on interface and an API of our own virtual try-on model we worked on from scratch (co-founder & husband is a ML Engineer).ย 
The idea is to replace fashion photoshoots mainly for e-commerce, by allowing users to generate any piece of clothing they want on any model (AKA OutfitAnyone or OOTDiffusion if you're familiar).ย 
We're currently bootstrapped, and as a "real" AI startup - most of our money goes to compute ๐Ÿ’€. Our model is still training and improving so we haven't publicly launched yet.ย 
While my co-fousband is focusing on the AI development, I do all the rest: developing 3 apps in parallel - our landing page, app (dashboard) and back office app where we QA our huge fashion dataset.

What can the WIP community help you with right now?


First of all, it inspires me to keep moving but also don't lose yourself and burnout. And I would really like to connect with like-minded entrepreneurs that I can consult with and rant about tech stuff ๐Ÿค“
Also, I don't know much about marketing, and it's something I'll have to dive into eventually.

What can you help others with?


Anything related to web development, positivity, and how to run a business with your spouse ๐Ÿ˜†

Something else you want to share?

I'm a fullstack dev and I left my job in August 2023 together with my husband to start our company. We were earning good money, but we came to the realization that you can never scale financially while working 9-5, and we've always had this urge to create something of our own.

I'm originally from Israel and I moved to Serbia in 2021. Never been happier!
I speak 4 languages now (Hebrew, Russian, English, Serbian) and I understand a lot of French because I used to work in a French startup ๐Ÿฅ– I just love France and would go back anytime ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

If you need any advice about Belgrade, I'm the greatest advocate ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ธ


Shalom and that's a lot of languages - welcome. Had the same realization and quit my job in New York City + moved to Thailand a few months ago: hard to run a successful business while getting burned out 9-5 and paying stupid money in rent every month

Hi Aya, welcome to WIP! Great to have another AI builder in the community.

Let me know if you want an invite for your husband too, and we'll get him on WIP as well!

Welcome Aya! Belgrade is pretty great, spent some time there one summer.
