Lectra to present latest innovations for textile industries at IMB

Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials—textiles, leather, industrial fabrics, and composite materials—, is pleased to participate in the 2009 IMB Trade Show from April 21 to 24, in Cologne, Germany.

During the event, Lectra will be announcing this summer's launch of the new version of Kaledo, its leading-edge professional design software platform and presenting its latest innovations, including the new Vector FX Extended range.

Lectra will be the only major supplier of integrated value-added CAD/CAM software and cutting solutions to take part in the IMB this year. In these very challenging times, the company has a vital role to play in supporting the textile industry. Lectra's presence at IMB 2009 demonstrates the company's commitment to maintaining close relationships with its customers and to sustaining its efforts to pursue ever more innovative new technologies.

“At Lectra, we believe it is our role to support our customers and take advantage of every opportunity to reinforce our relationships with them,” said Daniel Harari, Lectra CEO. “Our presence at IMB, one of the main textile shows in Europe, is a proof of our commitment to the industry. The new value-added solutions that will be announced show that we are continuing to strive to fulfill our customers' requirements and to help them overcome the challenges of their industry such as the need to increase profitability and make significant savings.”

Lectra announces the release of Kaledo (V2R1), the latest breakthrough in textile and style development and collection management.

Lectra's Kaledo suite provides designers with the most advanced textile and fashion development and management capabilities on the market. Kaledo Collection, the foundation of the suite, is a forum that unites business, creative, marketing and management teams in order to collaborate in the development of trends and collections. In addition, the suite comprises the Kaledo Textile modules which are used to simulate realistic prints, knits, and woven fabrics.

Now more than ever, fashion companies are under enormous pressure to deliver unique, eye-catching designs at reasonable prices, reduce their time-to-market, and renew collections more frequently. As a result, designers are under growing pressure to remain highly creative but with a faster turnover. Designers must have at their disposal tools which allow them to visualize the interplay of colors, surface design, and structure when designing fabrics. They also need to be able to draw on the expertise of others when developing collections in order to produce ranges that are technically feasible and cost-effective.

Team collaboration early in the process allows designers to create a more cohesive collection that responds better to the market's demands and will therefore lead to better sell-through. While, in normal times, this is extremely important for brands, it becomes imperative in economic conditions such as those we are currently experiencing. Companies need to slim down their operations and see a return on every dollar invested, even for creative activities such as design.
