Have you gotten comfortable with our Design in Sizes tool yet? This is one of the tools that we developed especially for all the apparel designers who have struggled to keep costs low while perfecting the scale and positioning of your graphics across all sizes.

Design in Sizes allows you to position your graphics on the 3D virtual garment and then scale and adjust the size and position across multiple sizes in a set. Design in Sizes gives you complete control over the way your graphics are displayed on garments of every size.

To see Design in Sizes in action, check out our short demo video:

On the evening of May 30, more than 300 guests attended our “Inspiring the Digital Revolution” event at the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. The hall was filled with amazing energy and ideas as attendees had the opportunity to mingle. We were pleased to welcome some of our ecosystem partners who were able to share their products and tools with everyone in attendance. These partners include Vizoo, Fit3D, Metail, Jeanologia, swatchbook, BeProduct and Kalypso.

Inspiring the Digital Revolution

Throughout the event, attendees also had the opportunity to hear from our special guest speakers. First, we heard from Shaul Cohen, Executive Vice President at Jordache, who shared that 3D is the future of apparel industry and tips for successful 3D integration. Lotta Jurica, Design Director at Adidas, took the stage and brought physical samples of garments she designed in 3D. We were grateful that she showed her design process from sketching and concepting to viewing the garments in 3D. Ada Suneson, VP of Technical Services at PVH, discussed how they are using the software to place graphics, change colorways, and apply patterns. She went on to explain that the 3D garments they create are then used tin virtual showcasing rooms for retail purposes. We also heard from Margarita Pasakarnis, 3D Manager at VF Jeanswear, who showed how she is using 3D to evaluate fit and make design changes. She spoke specifically about using Lotta to design lines on the back pockets of jeans.

Browzwear, a pioneer of 3D solutions for apparel design, development and merchandising, today announced that Kristen Ohlsson has joined the company as the new General Manager for Browzwear North America. Before joining the Browzwear team, Kristen was a Senior Director of Technical Design for the Global Brands Group in New York.

She has also previously worked with Fishman & Tobin as a technical design manager and before that, as a pattern maker.

“Kristen has already proven to be a great addition to the Browzwear team,” said Sharon Lim, Browzwear CEO. “Her technical knowledge and experience working with patterns and moving up through leadership positions has prepared her for this role, and we look forward to learning from her and navigating the path ahead together.”

Kristen earned her Bachelor of Science degree with a specialization in fashion design from Philadelphia University. She has served as a member of the New York chapter of the International Association of Clothing Designers & Executives (IACDE) as well as the Technical Collaboration Board.

“I am so excited to join the Browzwear team and have spent the last few weeks meeting the team and understanding where we are today and where we want to be in five and in ten years,” Ohlsson said. “This role is the perfect intersection of technical and industry knowledge with creative design and I look forward to setting and achieving goals together. Browzwear is a pioneer of 3D solutions for apparel design, development and merchandising, and I am proud to be a part of the movement.”

 

After much success with our last student intern project, we asked Mylisa Krueger, another one of our interns, to delve into the ins and outs of designing a plus-sized garment from concept to creation using only Browzwear 3D. She chose her garments and got to work.

“I knew that for this project, I wanted to try something that would be a fit challenge, so I chose a garment that I always found the most ill-fitting,” said Mylisa. “Because of my body type, there are usually many fit issues with mass-produced jumpsuits that usually have too low of a waist, or are too long, have too much bust room, or not enough length in the crotch. I was hoping to finally make a jumpsuit that fits me well and is comfortable.”

First, she created a personalized parametric avatar by plugging in her measurements and visually comparing actual photos of herself and the avatar she created in order to perfect the posture and distribution.

Once she created her avatar, she drafted sample base patterns to the parametric measurements and chose the one she liked best to execute in 3D.

She added tested fabric physics and customized her preferred base pattern to the style she liked best and then worked on prototype creation.

Mylisa prototyped five versions in 3D before printing and sewing it physically. Even though she could see on her screen that the pattern would work well and that it would fit, she was still surprised to see how few changes were needed to perfect the physical garment. Overall, she reported that the design came out great and only required slight alterations once sewn.

“As much as I was hoping to sew up a perfect final version, having only one additional alteration is still amazing!” said Mylisa. “I haven’t found a reason to why the top was a little bit loose, but my guess is that it has to do with the way I shaped the avatar. To get the avatar’s bust to match mine, I had to do some alterations that made the measurement lines curve.”

Results: Easy-to-do with Browzwear 3D

  • See immediate results from a pattern change
  • Test different fabric types for your garment without ever sewing it up
  • 2D and 3D inputs provide continuous feedback on your pattern adaptations
  • Create a parametric avatar (finally, you can be “outside of yourself” when you are the fit model!)
  • Technical maps to show tension of garments

“There is really nothing better than seeing your garment come together as quickly as you can think it,” she said “Being able to make adjustments without ever having to sew it up cut out so much guess work and time.”
