Fashion is constantly changing what is popular one day could be unpopular the next. Style is constantly evolving and what makes people feel their most confident cannot be calculated by a computer

I could see AI generating designs in the future, but I don't think it'll replace humans. they'll probably help designers instead of replacing them.
