Apparel firm Les Enphants selects Lectra Fashion PLM
Mar '17
China’s leading children apparel firm, Les Enphants, has selected Lectra’s Fashion PLM solution to speed up its process and produce a wider variety of styles. Lectra is the world leader in integrated technology solutions and software, designed for industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials to manufacture their products.

Les Enphants has always strived to provide its pint-sized clientele with playful designs and functional clothing that put quality and comfort first. Les Enphants was already happy with the improvements that Lectra’s Kaledo and Modaris had brought to its design and patternmaking departments, so choosing Lectra Fashion PLM to manage collection development seemed like the logical next step. The fashion-specific product lifecycle management platform made it easier to share product information across departments, giving the company better visibility over their entire process and facilitating a more collaborative workflow.

Les Enphants also built and housed an extensive library of pattern templates within the PLM, speeding up the time it took to develop new collections and cutting down on errors.

Ni Heli, head of I.T., Les Enphants said, “The company chose to work with Lectra because of its proven track record in the fashion industry and its software’s easy-to-use interface. After conducting an in-depth survey of the various systems on the market, Les Enphants decided Lectra Fashion PLM was the one best suited to their actual workflow.”

Qian Wenjie, design manager for the apparel firm said, “Lectra’s PLM provides us with tools for managing product data that other generic design solutions don’t offer. When it comes to design, there is an increasing demand for more style variety. At the same time, we need to make sure these styles satisfy our customers’ needs. The job is becoming increasingly difficult. With Lectra, we’ve built an extensive library of basic pattern templates so that even junior designers are less likely to make serious errors.”

Thanks to Lectra Fashion PLM, Les Enphants now has full visibility over its collection planning, design, and product development processes, with teams that work together collaboratively to make sure the brand’s clothing not only stays fresh and original, but also that it gets to stores on time and on budget. Les Enphants trusts Lectra to help with new challenges it may encounter as it grows its business. (GK)
