Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics, and composite materials—has organized with AMFI-Amsterdam Fashion Institute a design contest for students using Lectra’s 3D pattern-making solution, Modaris, for the fourth consecutive year.

Lectra and AMFI gave students the opportunity to create a mini-collection powered by Lectra solutions, which reinforced concepts emphasized as part of AMFI’s education program. Luna Mijnheer took away the Fashion & Design first prize, ahead of Jazz Kuipers.

In the Fashion & Management category, Sanne Vissers and Yasmin Groot won, with Denise Bink and Ruud van Esch coming in second. All the prizewinners received a Modaris license in order to continue with their fashion projects.

Lectra and AMFI, education partners since 2007

For more than 20 years, AMFI’s education program evolved in the fashion industry by balancing a combination of creative innovation and technological know-how. Lectra, with its strong commitment to education in the fashion industry, is proud to be a partner of AMFI.

AMFI’s Digital Body Sculpture program centers around virtual 3D prototyping, which has quickly become a critical element in their teaching. By viewing designs in 3D with Lectra’s Modaris, students can more easily understand pattern construction while seeing styles come to life.

By playing with the combination of silhouette, color, fabric design and fabric type, students learn to define proportion while also judging fit. Because modifications are then visible in real time on both the flat pattern and on the 3D prototype, there is more interaction and creative options can be explored freely.

3D prototyping has had a positive impact on the quality of designs and cut and has also instilled students with more and more enthusiasm every year. “Students work with a 3D virtual prototype to adjust and finalize designs, or to explore new creative paths, which improves the speed and accuracy of their work,” highlights Leslie Holden, head of the Fashion & Design and Fashion & Management departments. “With Lectra, we train students who then go into the industry and improve the development process and help evolve how the fashion industry works.”
