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.
