Imagine a software with a capability of searching all the fabrics and accessories produced to date and enabling users to view these in high resolution picture quality. The IDFS will be a software linked to all Global Suppliers, vendors, factories, print, embroidery and washing plants etc.. All their latest innovations and capabilities will be available in the system with in a click of a second. In addition to this users can also view these products either non- wash or after a specified wash duration with test results and add on features which provides a designers the path way to accurate decision making.

 The IDFS, concept is one the great findings especially when it comes to 3D Product development. It’s going to make big difference on Retail industry, when it comes to designing part of it. Changes the way things are happening now and it will to save time and money. With my experience, as a designer who works for retail market, i know how much effort we put in to the initial sample stage because those samples are the most important pieces for start off a good season. Other than research, creating a concept or range planning, i have faced lot of issues.  Meeting the time deadlines, achieving perfect samples first time ex…, personally I believe that IDFS can sort out these issues. But there is a limitation, that this can be effective. And I believe that sharing the same data base globally, especially because of the competition. So I would like to maintain data base for my company and need create a proper input methods who we feed certain details to the system......

Thanks for your comments Rakitha, to answer your question of sharing the data globally, all information such as styles, fabrics, trims provided in the software will not reveal any brand names of who has used it in the past. It will only show the styles that have been done and the appearance of the item chosen on a garment.

IDFS – Interactive Design FIT System is a software which is custom made especially for the fashion industry to improve and enhance the method of product development from concept to market. This is a software that can be accessed by fashion retailers, global fabric and trim suppliers, trend services, universities and colleges etc. This software will consist of data for designers to work on for a season’s collection. It will have the features of all the software’s that are being used currently in the industry but with more added features of having real products with more realistic features and images as a physical product. In addition to this, a 3D Fit on system will allow designers to use these styles created through IDFS on a preferred model of their choice where then the style could be reviewed as if it is an actual physical product. All images seen on a system would be 99% accurate to a bulk representation and designers, buyers, merchandisers and heads of departments can make better decisions based on the results seen on the system. A List of images will follow with a demo of IDFS software
