What a joy it is, to see a dream come true !
Zhang Han’s fashion design project using her endless imagination and talent.

Han, a 21 years old, Beijing Institute of Fashion Technology, 2014 graduate of fashion design and engineering, describes her work as her love for chinese history and culture.

“My dream is to become a futuristic fashion designer, my design aims to bring this fantasy imagination of the wormhole, with its most simple lines and symbols that portrays the miraculous journey through galaxy.
Through the Wormhole Source of inspiration: In the eyes of scientists, or science fiction writers, wormholes are a bridge from fantasy world to reality, even if no one has ever seen what it looks like, nor be able to prove its existence.”

Han was using an advanced fashion design tools allowing true to life visualization in 3D.
Han in currently working as an assistant designer at Sensa, good luck Han, and may your dream come true.

We were happy to answer some question regarding new 3d technologies available for fashion  design and manufacturing.
The interview was published on fiber2fashion

Everyone is talking about Kate Middleton’s exquisite spring fashion taste, but no one have foresee another guest wearing the same Missoni coat at the same wedding, and so we decided to join the party and have our own version, made with Lotta.

Kate Middleton Missoni Coat

Its that time of the year… time for the sun to come out, for optimism, flowers and fun.
Its that spring spirit that inspired few of the best designers to come up with some special spring collection of gorgeous, happy, flower printed pants.
And so, with our own version for spring virtual style…

Browzwear Spring Design
we wish you all a happy, optimistic and flourishing springtime!

Happy holidays from Browzwear and Pragma team

Predictive Analytics

Instead of using product past performance, store-orders or gut feelings, companies are now trying to predict the future, based on what is happening now.

A weather change, a cultural event, a new box office hit or even social events can influence trends and consumption. But how will companies know in advance?

Nowadays, its getting easier. Perhaps the most accurate indicators of consumer opinion and behavior, in real time, are the posts in social media. Furthermore, segmented information from Club cards can provide data about purchasing habits while online e-commerce can help in predicting sales in stores.

According to the Mckinsey article, in the Predictive Analytics section, analysis of such data can lead businesses to bypass competitors by making the right moves, first.

What if retailers could predict winning trends and best selling items?

How great could it be, if this information was available before setting the manufacturing quantities?

Just imagine… Less waste, less returns, less end of year sales losses, more profit and most important happier customers, as they get what they want when they want it.

What seems to be the beginning of the apparel industry evolution has become feasible due to a huge leap in Virtualization technologies made in the last 2 years, read more about the vision of Demand-driven supply-chain elaborated well by Mckinsey.

 

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.

 

Its another sneak peak to Vstitcher 6.5 and its our favorite!

With Image Base Lighting VStitcher real time render have made another huge leap.
Image based lighting is a 3D rendering technique which allows to light a scene with highly detailed real-world lighting.
VS users can now use HDRi images – (high dynamic range imaging) to illuminate the scene and reach unprecedented realism.

The results are stunning, see for yourself:

3D garments, with IBL - HDRi

  Material with different specular attributes using IBL (HDRi) on VS 6.5 release

Look closely at the image above, it shows 3 materials with different specular behavior, dim, sharper and full reflective. The hi quality representation is possible thanks to VS 6.5 improved render capabilities and IBL!

Texture enhanced by IBL-HDRi, feature VS 6.5

In the image above we utilize Image Based Lighting to generate many light sources which brings the best out of the garment!

And there is more…

We provide few HDRi images with vStitcher 6.5, however, you may load other HDRi images, control the exposure and change the orientation in VS 6.5 to get your own special set of lights.

The future is happening now!

Important: the images in this post are rendered with VStitcher! No external render engine was used.

As promised in previous sneak peak, more is coming in Vstitcher 6.5, and its no less than amazing!

VS 6.5 users can now finally prototype filled or puffed garments. The virtues of prototype cost reduction, are now applied to the widest range or garments to date.

The VS 6.5 quality of padded simulation, and it’s ability of reaching infinite filling types is unprecedented.

The algorithm we have developed especially to enable this, is by far, the most advanced of its kind.

Stay tuned for more great stuff…

Exciting news! Vstitcher 6.5 is coming…

Less than 6 month away from 6.0 release and 6.5 is here.

Thanks to Browzwear’s legendary team, 6.5 VS release is a blast!

New feature in V.S 6.5

A huge step forward, on all levels.
Bottom line – Vstitcher users can do more, and do it better and faster with 6.5!
It takes less time, less resources, and much more fun.
