Art student from California wins Gerber's fashion contest

Brittney Castillo, a student at Art Institute of California in Hollywood, has won the first place in Gerber Technology's student fashion design competition at ideation2015, the company's annual software conference for the fashion, apparel, accessories, and footwear industries.

Ideation highlighted the technology and new developments that have dramatically changed the fashion industry, as well as brought together a community of industry leaders to discuss and explore Gerber's innovative solutions.

The iconic Darnell Collection was the inspiration for students pursuing a degree in fashion as they were instructed to recreate an original garment inspired by one of five decades from the Collection. One finalist design for each of the five decades was chosen from among the student entries. All five finalists received a one year subscription to AccuMark 2D and YuniquePLM, and Castillo, the winner, also received a one year subscription to AccuMark 3D.

Castillo chose to recreate a Balenciaga dress from the 1940s, and her winning creation was unveiled in a fashion show hosted by Charlotte Smith, owner of the Darnell Collection. In order to design her garment, Castillo used Gerber's AccuMark. She used the software to digitise and make adjustments, stating that Gerber's solutions eliminated certain steps in her process that normally would have been tedious and time consuming, according to a press release.

Gerber Technology provides integrated software and hardware solutions to more than 78,000 customers in the aerospace, construction, furniture, fashion & apparel, transportation, technical textiles, packaging, wind energy and sign & graphics industries, including over 100 Fortune 500 companies in 130 countries.
