Our fashion experience began in the French couture houses working with patternmakers at Chanel, Yves Saint Laurent and Dior. We built on this expertise to develop a full PLM suite that not only facilitates product development, but also serves as an exploitable asset database. Lectra Fashion PLM has evolved and now meets the needs of the entire apparel development chain from brands, to suppliers, to retailers. It is currently used by global brands including Mango in Spain and Country Road in Australia.
We help apparel companies streamline the business process and resolve industry challenges, such as soaring material costs, and respond quickly to consumer demand whilst maintaining quality, brand image and profitability. Lectra Fashion PLM is the only PLM on the market that truly integrates textile and fashion design and the accompanying data into PLM instead of relying on cumbersome attachments to convey information. Collaborative working means easy and accurate communication across departments, resulting in faster time-to-market, more time for creative tasks and increased savings across the supply chain.
