Browzwear is building a diverse ecosystem of partner solutions that enable fashion brands to realize the vision of a digital process from design through production and merchandising

Singapore, May 9, 2017 – Browzwear, the leading provider of 3D solutions for fashion design, development and merchandising, announced today the launch of the Browzwear Open Platform. The Open Platform is the cornerstone of a program designed to enable fashion brands and retailers to leverage a growing ecosystem of integrated software solutions as part of their digital apparel process.

The apparel industry is currently transitioning from traditional, manual design and development to digital technologies and workflows that promise faster delivery, higher customer satisfaction, and greater sustainability.  The ability to interact with accurate, 3D garments right from the design stage, all the way through to production and merchandising, is key to this transformation.

With the Open Platform, Browzwear is bringing together the many different solutions that can play a part in the digital process, and enabling them to leverage the power of 3D. Partners in the Open Platform program provide software for asset management, pattern design, costing, merchandising, showcasing, online shopping, workflow and more.  For Browzwear partners, the program features the new Open Platform API, along with support for testing and development, and joint marketing initiatives. For brands and retailers, the program also includes advanced consulting and integration services that help organizations to design and implement a customized digital process successfully.

Here is what some Browzwear partners are saying about the Open Platform initiative:

“Browzwear’s 3D digital technology together with Dassault Systèmes’ Product Lifecycle Management solutions can streamline the way fashion companies design, develop and manufacture products.” Said Chris Colyer, VP Consumer Goods & Retail at Dassault Systèmes. “The Open Platform is an important step forward for the digital transformation of the fashion industry.”

“Browzwear’s true-to-life 3D design and development together with Modo’s photorealistic rendering gives designers the ability to showcase their garments effectively long before samples are available. Through the Open Platform, designers can now launch a Modo render with a single click,” said Shane Griffith, Product Marketing Manager, at Foundry.

“By integrating our GRAFIS 2D CAD software with Browzwear’s 3D prototyping, our customers can instantly simulate their patterns. The integration with Browzwear’s API allows simulation of style modifications to fit and design in seconds. Browzwear’s API provides a wide range of functions which allows this deep integration with our products.” Dr Kerstin Friedrich, Managing director at GRAFIS Software, Germany.

“Each of our customers has a unique process and we are committed ensuring that their digital transformation is a success,” said Sharon Lim, Browzwear CEO. “We created the Browzwear Open Platform program so that we can help every customer create the right solution for their business, through a combination of True-to-Life 3D, expert services, and complimentary products and technologies.”

A few excepts from VF”s exciting announcement – read the full press release here.

VF Corporation (NYSE: VFC), a global leader in branded lifestyle apparel, footwear and accessories, today announced that its Jeanswear division is partnering with the University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG) to bring innovative 3D design technology to the school’s Department of Consumer, Apparel and Retail Studies to help prepare students for careers in the apparel and retail industries. VF’s Jeanswear business includes its Wrangler® and Lee®brands.

The innovative technology provides students with a unique, hands-on opportunity to learn state-of-the-art techniques and processes used in the areas of apparel design, production and merchandising. The software enables patternmakers and designers to mimic the real-life process of designing and developing products, which means garments can be made in a few hours, as opposed to the weeks it takes to make physical samples, helping companies save time, money and resources.

The 3D software at the center of this partnership is provided by Browzwear, a specialist in 3D simulation for the apparel and fashion industries.

Browzwear’s 3D Apparel models combined with Dassault Systèmes’ “My Collection” industry solution experience can accelerate fashion design and development

PI Apparel Berlin, October 10th, 2016: During PI Apparel Berlin, Browzwear will demonstrate how its 3D digital technology together with Dassault Systèmes’ Product Lifecycle Management solutions can streamline the way fashion companies design, develop and manufacture products. The demonstration will show how Browzwear’s 3D Apparel models can be integrated to Dassault Systèmes’ ”My Collection” industry solution experience, a world class PLM solution for fashion, consumer goods and retail companies.
It will also show how apparel designers and developers can leverage managed assets from ”My Collection” and later share finished garments’ Bill of Materials in Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This makes it far simpler and more efficient for fashion designers and developers to make use of available assets, and focus instead on the creative process.
‘My Collection’ was developed with 3D in mind from the very beginning. And with Browzwear 3D and Dassault Systèmes, product teams can share realistic 3D Apparel models and technical specifications from the earliest stages of the development processes to dramatically improve communication and collaboration with a variety of stakeholders of the development stream.
“Visitors at PI Apparel in Berlin will see how the combination of 3D Asset & PLM workflow is enabling leading brands to shorten time to market and enhance creativity while delivering products that reflect the Voice of the Customer,” said Avihay Feld, Chief Product Officer at Browzwear. “Using visually compelling and technically accurate 3D models for apparel from early development extends collaboration with designers, and streamlines manufacturing. It enables companies to meet market requirements and enhance creativity in a way that was not possible with traditional 2D workflows. We are very excited to demonstrate this capability with Dassault Systèmes at the event.”

We’re excited to announce a major expansion of sales, support and services at Browzwear North America.  The US market is rapidly discovering the potential of 3D fashion technology and we are looking forward to helping both our long-term and new customers to transform the way they design, manufacture and market their products.

browzwear-usa-team

The new operation will be led by Browzwear’s co-founder Sharon Lim, a veteran in 3D digitization of the apparel workflow. Sharon has been working in the fashion industry for nearly two decades and established our professional services teams in Europe and Asia. She has worked closely with many leading retailers  to implement an end-to-end digital product lifecycle for over 13 years.   With her guidance, our US customers can manage change and ensure a smooth transition to 3D.

Sharon will be joined by Lenny Weiss, VP Sales, and Cara Babcock, Field Application & Product Support Manager. Lenny joins us from our partner Gerber Technology, where he was head of sales for YuniquePLM. During his career selling digital manufacturing solutions to the apparel industry, he gained an in-depth understanding of the product life cycle and came to believe in the  importance of 3D for realizing an end-to-end digital solution. His experience will be a tremendous asset to our customers.

Cara joins us after nearly a decade at Nike, where she served as a Technical Developer and 3D Lead. At Nike she used 3D technology for product creation enhancement in her roles as both a technical developer and 3D lead, so she is ready to collaborate with our customers to understand their requirements.  Cara will be working with Sharon to replicate the success of our professional services teams in Europe and Asia so that our North American customers can also hit the ground running.

After a year and a half at Browzwear, Darioush Nikpour is leaving his position as Vice President of Business Development to move to Digital Supply Chain in the industry.  We wish him all the best in this endeavour, however we look forward to many years of fruitful collaboration with him in his new role.

In addition, we are committed to our growing network of technology partners in the US and to our strategy of opening up our platform to other members of the fashion ecosystem. Together, we can provide greater value to our customers and enable them to fully implement a 3D digital product lifecycle.

Over the next few weeks, we will be following up with posts from Sharon, Cara and Lenny so that you can get to know us better. For more information about Browzwear, please contact us at info@seir.im.
