Jane Palmu is a lecturer at Finland’s Aalto University. She uses Browzwear’s vStitcher software to teach
students the latest fashion development techniques. To demonstrate the value of 3D visualization in the
business world, she went to the Nomo store at Helsinki Kamppi for a pair of made-to-measure jeans.
At the store, after picking the cut and design she wanted, Jane had a full-body 3D scan. Nomo uses the
scan to make the jeans. But first, Jane asked them to send her the scan file along with the pattern of the
cut that she had selected. She imported the body scan into VStitcher, selected the fabric and created
a 3D simulation of the Nomo jeans pattern over her own 3D body.
Together with pattern-maker Pirjo Elbrecht, Jane used VStitcher to see how she would look in her new jeans. And she looked great!
Next, the actual jeans were manufactured based on the measurements from the body scan.
Thanks to the cooperation between Aalto University and Nomo Jeans, both the fashion brand and the“The results are amazing! They fit me perfectly, just like the 3D simulation!” reports Jane.
Thanks to the cooperation between Aalto University and Nomo Jeans, both the fashion brand and the
university have seen the value of 3D simulation for the fashion development process.
Nomo Jeans saw how visualization could bring their custom-made jeans to life for their customers and enable them to
test different patterns on a real body. The University wants to enable more students to experience 3D visualization and to expand the
collaboration with Nomo Jeans.
