The VStitcher Colorways Workspace gives users the ability to seamlessly build, manage, and modify colorways to achieve their creative potential quickly and easily. Each colorway is made up of a combination of color libraries, seams, fabrics, artwork, and displays the color in use. With the Colorway Workspace, users can leverage multiple colorways for the same garment with flexibility, as well as have the ability to import existing colorways, clone, add, delete and rename throughout the process. In VStitcher, the colorways are automatically generated per garment and updated in real-time, depending on the selected components.
To ensure that everything is kept organized, the Colorways Workspace offers a variety of different layouts to choose from so that users can enjoy a streamlined colorways creation process and efficiently manage all of the different combinations simultaneously. The default layout displays all of the colorways and their relevant components as a list, the grid view provides users with an overview of the colorways, the 2D window which arranges the pattern pieces on one side and the components on the other, and finally, the 3D window, which allows you to make adjustments on the left side and see the 3D result on the right.
When it comes to creating colorways workflows, the Colorways Workspace is particularly useful for apparel companies that work with seasonal carryover styles, as it allows designers to experiment endlessly with different options for the same garment and instantly visualize the results. This means that more informed decisions can be made at the click of a button, without having to physically produce different color combinations. With a drag and drop interface, designers can simply change the color of any material as and when needed, as well as merge colors to narrow down the number of colors used or to create an entirely new color scheme. It’s also easy to add various artworks to your garments and rapidly apply them across different size ranges and selected colorways. All the colorways and material adjustments created can then easily be located in the workspace to use as and when needed.
