Here, Now and Future!

“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.” – Coco Chanel, Designer

The game of fashion is changing and the buzz is all about digital revolution. Winners are the ones who are ready to take a hard look at their current process and make efforts to move  from “we have always been doing it this way” and adopt the technology that makes them more creative, more responsive and in turn more profitable.

You cannot make a car sample every time you want to see a new concept, colour or style. The same holds true for building projects. Adopting 3D in these industries has allowed them to develop quickly and make several iterations to a design in hours before committing to production. For the apparel industry, the question is not about if to adopt 3D, but when to adopt it. The advantages are clear for moving to 3D. You can make better products, faster decisions, and save costs.

3D prototyping has made waves among the fashion community.Most of the designers have now started to slowly incorporate 3D technology and avatars to make quick design decisions on how a garment looks in different colours, sizes and fabrics to make sure they stay alive in the fashion world. There are increasing signs that the industry is warming up to the idea of new game-changing new technology.

What if we told you, we can not only help with the 3D visualization and design, but can generate production-ready patterns of what was designed so you can move from purchase to production line in hours? Your designers and customers can design on our suite of software and your manufacturing operations downloads production ready patterns!

Integrated 3D Design and Manufacturing Automation Software

California based vPersonalize Inc. a pioneer in 3D design and automation software for on-demand manufacturing, today announced the launch of its new, unified design-to-manufacturing software for brands, designers and manufacturers to enhance operational efficiency, optimize product development, and help bring innovative products to market quickly.

 

We see the future as being inventory-light and on-demand, where long design lead times, absence of inventory intelligence, product line limitation and a lack of customization are a thing of the past

Leveraging a portfolio of patented technologies, vPersonalize Inc (www.vpersonalize.com) delivers the only design to manufacturing automation solution that makes small batch and custom manufacturing viable at regular price points. The cloud-based platform provides the ability to quickly choose from a catalog of pre-made products or digitize one’s own custom product and then design, proof or co-create and automatically have them converted into size-graded, production ready patterns, through a linked e-commerce and order management system. Designs can be transferred automatically across entire product lines, generating multiple SKUs across different styles, materials, and sizes.

“We see the future as being inventory-light and on-demand, where long design lead times, absence of inventory intelligence, product line limitation and a lack of customization are a thing of the past,” says Bala Selvarajan, Co-founder and CEO of vPersonalize. “With on-demand manufacturing, brands can now make what sells, when it sells and quickly get it to where it sells,” he adds.

In a short period of time, vPersonalize has signed on a wide range of customers, including two of the top 20 apparel manufacturers in USA, sports apparel brands, full service custom fashion makers and clothing brands in USA, Canada and Australia.

Sean Saberi, CEO of FABFAD, Inc. (www.fabfad.com), a top apparel manufacturer based in Los Angeles that works with several large brands, has partnered with vPersonalize to offer an integrated solution to his clients. “The integrated workflow enables the brands we work with to fully customize their products. Because the 3D apparel designer is connected to the production automation system, our customers can then order through the same cloud-based platform and have the products made on-demand, which has significantly reduced lead times. Clients feel far more in control, as they are able to create and see their designs in real time and then get it manufactured as seen,” says Sean.

“As a brand focused on custom racing apparel, manufacturing one-offs had always been time consuming and expensive. Using vPersonalize’s automated pattern generation and grading, we are now able to manufacture one-off, custom products in a fraction of the time it used to take and at very affordable price points,” says Chuck Carothers, partner at CanvasMX (www.canvasmx.com), one of the earliest adopters of vPersonalize. “Their 3D clothing designer has further helped drive sales and conversions,” adds Chuck.

“Using a combination of technology and automation, we are helping bring manufacturing jobs back to the US,” says Zack Hurley, CEO of Indie Source (www.indiesource.com), a full service apparel manufacturer based in Los Angeles and an early adopter of vPersonalize. “With automation, the balance of power has shifted. For order volumes of 1000 or less, it is now more economical to make in US than abroad, which incur customs and shipping, not to mention long transit times and details lost in translation,” he adds.

Jessica, a fashion and technology consultant and user experience enthusiast quoted,

“The slow process of making changes on the garment, then on the pattern and communicating the changes back and forth to the factories only to find out that they misunderstood the directions for the sample, seemed like the most inefficient process ever. So naturally, when I was offered the chance to test out the pattern making software I leapt to the opportunity”

Technology for tomorrow’s designers!

copy1 The constant changes in the apparel industry are definitely keeping the fashion geeks on their nerves. The idea or the design that one would think is not going to work, might be tomorrow’s most sought after. Aspiring young designers are making their way in such an environment and trying to keep ahead of the technology in order to carve a niche for themselves. The academic institutions around the world are incorporating latest technology tools into their curriculums to provide their students with a space for creativity, industry skills and real-world experience.

By using technology such as 3D simulation or pattern making software, students have the freedom to experiment in the early stages and develop new ideas. They can take advantage of the virtual world to conceptualize, design and build better products with a better fit.

However, as technology continues to improve and change the way brands develop, produce and market fashion, students will need the technical skills that parallel those used in the apparel industry. If graduate students already have the knowledge of the technology software there will be less need to train in-house, and students can join design teams directly and already start working with 3D.
