Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials—hosted companies from around the world at its Lectra Fashion Seminar in Bordeaux-Cestas (France). 
 
The event welcomed 70 delegates representing 40 fashion and apparel companies from Europe, North America, Africa and Asia at Lectra’s International Advanced Technology & Conference Center, in Bordeaux, France. 
 
This seminar explored how businesses can use best practice expertise and technology to improve the fashion and apparel development cycle and optimize workflows. 
 
Lectra’s Design to Cost approach was presented in addition to a host of other solutions such as design, Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), pre-production and production, which are applied according to a customer’s specific process. Attendees benefited from live demonstrations of Lectra’s end-to-end approach. Yet it was also Lectra’s industry knowledge, R&D investment and range of professional services, which made a real impression on delegates. 
 
“The conference did an excellent job of showing us how we, at Ralph Rucci, can partner with Lectra. In particular, Lectra provides a path for fashion firms to be strategic in their operational decisions and process. While the products themselves are strong, the service is what differentiates Lectra. They provide more than just solutions; Lectra provides thought-partnership,” testifies Cornelia Moore, Strategy Lead at US brand Ralph Rucci. 
 
Delegates were given food-for-thought as Lectra specialists presented the changing landscape of the fashion market and the increasing urgency to align front-end process with pre-production and production to increase design and style options, understand costs and generate substantial material savings. In addition to areas of bottom-line improvement, demonstrations also provided a look at how design, 3D and collection management technologies can be leveraged to create top line growth opportunities.
