3D Tech for Product Development in Fashion

In today's world of fashion we know that there are certain software available for 3D fitting such as TUKA TECH and V-STITCHER which are widely used in the industry. However, both these softwares can only create a 3D model as a fit for fittings and has features of fabric types and their behaviour when its dressed on a 3D model. It displays the stretch points and other areas where amendment is required to the garment spec itself.

In your opinion can the below technology by Cisco be used in the initial product development stages in Fashion rather than in retail at this level to reduce lead time from initial concept to actual production?


The Future of Shopping ( )

All High street brands have core styles for every season that re-runs for years, often the sampling process for these styles are quite lengthy starting from Initial Design, Design review to Line Adoption, Fit and Sealer Samples. In the Past this Process takes approximately 3 to 4 months and now it has been shortened to 2 months and less to improve leadtime. Can this technology reduce the leadtime further ?

This technology will help buyers and merchandisers to have a more focussed approach on sampling, without having to sample every single colour and option and having to edit most of it when deciding on the range. It will thus help the manufacturers to focus on the styles which are selected for the range and do it more accurately and quickly. I'm not sure if this sytem can replace the fit models though, as designers would like to see the actual fit on a live model, rather than on a 3D system.

Presently many fashion retailers a re-looking at their product development leadtime and many have cut down unnecessary stages of sampling to reduce leadtime. The use of TUKA tech and V-Stitcher has become beneficial for manufacturers to develop a fit 99% accurate to customer requirement, however the question arises what next and how sampling can be made virtual and more interactive for designers
