Gerber & Stephanie London make garments collection

May 29, 2019 - United States Of America

Gerber has joined hands with Stephanie London, a high-end women’s wear designer, to make a collection of garments, the Gerber by Waldrip Collection. The collection shows how traditional processes that historically take months, can be transformed to bring a line to life within days. Gerber makes industry-leading software for apparel and industrial customers.

“We have been driving innovation in this space. The Gerber by Waldrip Collection shows how technology makes purchase-activated fashion real, so you can design and produce based upon demand, staying on trend, optimising inventory and minimising markdowns,” Ketty Pillet, vice president of marketing, Gerber said in a press release.

“Working with Gerber, opened my eyes to a whole new way of doing things. I was really amazed that within a matter of hours I could see a 3D virtual sample that was well on the way to a final product. Gerber held my hand and educated me on all the technologies they have to help, from design through a personalised bespoke concept all the way up to small batch on-demand or mass production,” London said.

For the past 50 years, Gerber has been transforming data flow and connectivity from cloud-based YuniquePLM and AccuMark 2D/3D software solutions sending data to Industry 4.0 enabled GERBERcutter Z1or Gerber Paragon cutter to power efficient on-demand or mass production processes. To sustain this model of transformation, Gerber recently patented two solutions which provide unique advantages for an on-demand digital print workflow. Within its industry-leading AccuMark software, they have patented a unique ICC colour profile to ensure design integrity through the print process. Secondly, Gerber’s latest concept, PrintSync, is a device which allows a hands-free and continuous workflow from printing through the final cut parts, synchronising the material from any digital printer to the speed of the cutter.

Gerber plans to continue to demonstrate how its suite of end-to-end solutions support agility from design to production workflows with the opening of its Innovation Centre in New York City scheduled later this year. (GK)
