Lectra gets fashion schools together at education congress
Lectra, a leader in technology solutions for industries using fabrics, leather, technical textiles, and composite materials, recently got partners from the world of education to the firm’s Bordeaux-Cestas campus for its eighth education congress. The event was devoted to the trends shaping fashion industry and impacting professions from design to production.

Over fifty representatives from among the most important fashion schools in Germany, Canada, China, US, France, Hong Kong, Italy, The Netherlands, Poland, United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Sweden, participated in this biannual meeting between industry experts and teaching professionals.

Fashion professions are evolving as companies make their first steps towards Industry 4.0, adopting 3D and rationalising the lifecycle management for their collections, thanks to PLM. Lectra’s congress enabled schools to discuss the developing role of designers and patternmakers, and the new elements to be integrated into training programs.

Lectra illustrated future changes through presentations on design, patternmaking, 3D prototyping, and PLM.

Working with schools to design courses which meet the needs of fashion companies has always been at the heart of Lectra’s education program. During the event, the company presented collaborative experiences between partner schools and fashion brands, such as the competitions organised by Lectra with Missoni, Balenciaga, and Armani in Italy, as well as Peacebird in China and JC Penney in the US.

In the United Kingdom, Lectra collaborated with COS (H&M group) and the Arts University Bournemouth (AUB) for a competition centred on the design of a collection with zero waste.

The event also shone the spotlight on China and its major role in the evolution of the fashion industry. Li Min, Vice-Dean of the fashion and design faculty at Donghua university in Shanghai spoke of the event, organised by Lectra, which brought together major Chinese companies, experts, and representatives from the biggest schools in China.

Céline Choussy Bedouet, chief marketing and communications officer, Lectra said, “Lectra’s eighth education congress confirms the company’s commitment to our partner schools. We shared our analysis of the market, the digitalisation of the eco-system, and how Industry 4.0 principles can be applied to the fashion industry. We also discussed mass customisation and the role of PLM.” (GK)
