Based on the fact that most of current current wardrobe modeling is mainly from the perspective of product designing, this paper aims to explore the user's emotional needs and wardrobe modeling design elements between the relevance, so as to provide better guidance for the wardrobe modeling design. Based on the kansei engineering theory, the modeling perceptual intention of representative wardrobe samples was analyzed and the semantic database was constructed. Semantic difference method would be used to conduct perceptual evaluation of representative samples and perceptual vocabulary. On the premise of ensuring the rationality of the data, SPSS software was imported to conduct the principal component analysis and factor coefficient quantitative analysis of the perceptual evaluation data, and the main perceptual intention words and design styles affecting the wardrobe design would be obtained. Finally, a correlation model between major parts of the wardrobe and perceptual image words would be established through questionnaire survey. And the existing wardrobe styles and styles would both be improved. SUS scale would be compared with the existing wardrobe styles to verify the feasibility of the design method, and finally a theoretical reference was provided for the research on wardrobe modeling.
