The idea behind the Vidya Award is to encourage schools and universities (which have their own Textile and Apparel Technology departments) to learn how to blaze a new trail in 3D product development and to visualize and simulate the garments at a very early stage of development.
The simulation software Vidya enables the visualization of the optimal design draft - and it's always based exactly on the original 2D pattern data. Vidya also has an Avatar Studio - and it doesn't only simulate patterns and fabrics - the Avatar Studio also creates the best possible simulations of the human being.
This year's competition task was to develop a basic pattern in any CAD system and simulate and optimize the size & fit on a SizeGERMANY avatar in Vidya.
The Kerschensteiner School and the University of Niederrhein took part, with a total of 16 participants. The first prize of €1,000 was won by Carina Scheifele. Her dress is very classic with a pencil skirt and neckholder - and details like the side slit, the asymmetrical hem and low-cut back were interesting aspects. Aurelie Harazim won the 2nd prize of €500. Technically, her dress is very sophisticated, thanks to her very successful simulations of the flounces and her combination of materials.
Both winners come from the Kerschensteiner School in Stuttgart - and they have produced dresses with perfect, reality-matching simulation.
