Browzwear North America is Growing and Welcomes a New Management Team

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.

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.

New Virtual AlvaForm from Alvanon work with Browzwear’s proven 3D solutions to deliver exceptional results for global fashion brands and retailers

Physical vs Virtual

Press Release | Browzwear, creator of “Real to Life” 3D fashion design and development solutions, employ Alvanon Inc.’s new Virtual AlvaForm to help designers, brands and retailers achieve 100% accurate digital or virtual counterparts of physical Alvanon AlvaForms. The Alvanon virtual avatars, based on real body shapes, supplement existing physical tools and can be used throughout every function of the supply chain, from 3D design to fitting and merchandising, using multiple poses as well as dynamic simulation for animation.

Browzwear has been a long time collaborator with Alvanon, the world’s leading provider of full service, integrated fit solutions for the apparel industry. Together with Alvanon, Browzwear strives for greater accuracy and True To Life fit along with photorealistic showcase quality in infinite posture and styling options for merchandising. Drag & drop, that’s all it takes!

“At Browzwear, we are excited about the Virtual AlvaForms, as they ensure an even more realistic and enriching experience for fashion brands,” says Sharon Lim, managing director of Browzwear. Brands can accelerate time to market and re-energize the creative design process by using easy-to-adopt 3D fashion design solutions and the Virtual AlvaForms.

“Both Browzwear and Alvanon share a passion to continuously innovate and effect a positive paradigm shift for the fashion industry by leveraging the benefits of 3D technology as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.”

Since late 2007, both companies, together with leading brands, have pioneered the use of 3D technology to bring about accurate fit standards from product design through to product development.

We have been listening to you, fixing and improving.

We want to thank everyone for all the interactions in 2013 which have allowed us to create better solutions for you.
For the last 10 years, 3d remains pretty much a technical tool used by technical developers for Efficient & Productive apparel development.
In the front end, there is a growing demand for 3d apparel for use in E-commerce, marketing & digital cataloging, fueled by smart devices & greater visualization technology such as 3d printing etc…
3D virtual model challenges reality… It’s been exciting for us to pioneer & grow with the industry these last 13 years.

A designer said this (early 2012) which stuck to us

“ I would love to have a solution that can take what’s on my head and make it real so others can see it”

and with that quote, we went away inspired to create a 3d design tool (Lotta) for designers which we hope will accomplish this challenging goal.

Evolving Fast
We are a distance away from the above quote but in Lotta (We name it after an inspiring designer) we developed a solution with creativity & fun in mind.
Lotta’s seamless integration with Adobe applications (most used by designers) allows designers a familiar user experience to create 3D.
Lotta 1.0 launched in Dec of 2013, was created with the help of innovative apparel designers and we are evolving fast, Lotta 1.1 is already here.
In V-Stitcher 6.6, we took inspiration to reality by making the 3D design from Lotta compatible with V-Stitcher so that creative 3d design can be interpreted immediately for technical product development…. So with fun & creativity, we added efficiency & productivity.

Coming Soon…
There’s a new birth in Browzwear. Stay tuned as we will notify you when our baby is delivered.
Meantime, we invite you to our social pages and the team would love to hear from you there, Especially when you “like” us, it really fuels us.

We are excited to introduce Vstitcher 6.5!

Only sixmonths have passed since our last major VS 6.0 release and we are ready to introduce another giant step forward with VS 6.5.

VStitcher 6.5 is: More, Better, Faster!!!

MORE means new garment categories,thanks to the new puffy fabric simulation, and even
more garment types using our new 3D rigid trims.
More is also about a whole new selection of extreme poses within imported Avatars, made possible with our auto‐bones detection algorithm.

BETTER means dramatically improved realism achieved with Image Based Lighting‐HDRi, plus the use of real 3D objects such as buttons, buckles,zippers, etc.

FASTER means 30% less time to create or modify a 3D garment, thanks to 3 key improvements – UI, Snapshots and Simulation Optimization.
We have managed to add lots of new and necessary functions to VS 6.5 and at the same time simplify the UI – an extremely challenging mission, no doubt, but that should come as no
surprise to you, after 6.0. A good user experience is with in the culture of Browzwear!
We are true believers in great technology but even more so in intuitive, easy to use and fun interface.

Many other new features and improvements in VS 6.5 awaits you so do take the time to get acquainted with them through this bulletin. Sign up for our upcoming webinars where we’ll take you on a guided tutorial on specific functions that interests you.

Wait, there is more – Communication!
We have added a communication module which enables you to seamlessly communicate your rich 3D results achieved through VS 6.5 with anyone anywhere.
This is still on trial but we encourage you to try it out now. Just follow the ‘Share’ button in VS 6.5.

We hope you will find VS 6.5 to be more intuitively effective and most importantly, FUN.

Aren’t they gorgeous ?…
