DFF: '3D is the future for garment production'

Collaboration between designers and project developers working in 3D “will change the fashion industry”

Challenges such as the rising cost of labour and raw materials have created a need for more agility and effectiveness, the Drapers Fashion Forum in London heard this afternoon.

Nicole Callendar, senior fashion and textile design expert at supply chain software provider Lectra, told the insutry-leading event, which took the theme of “Fit for the Future”: “The solution is including 3D technology into product development. It is the future of garment production.”

Collaboration between designers and project developers working in 3D, she explained, will change the fashion industry in these ways:

  1. Images and designs will be able to be approved immediately
  2. There will be more ways to anticipate changes throughout the supply chain
  3. Decisions can be made in real time
  4. Designers can produce collections more quickly
  5. Trends can be reacted to more quickly
  6. 3D design will improve fit

 “The only way to be more efficient is to be more agile,” concluded Callendar.
