Vintage clothing collection adopts Gerber's 3D technology

Australia's vintage clothing firm, The Darnell Collection, has partnered with Gerber Technology, to adopt 3D technology into its clothing styles.

McFadden executive director, CAD Product Management, Gerber said, “The Darnell Collection is important on so many levels, but perhaps the highest being its role in bringing the true art of fashion to life. It serves as an inspiration, and allows us to delve into the past and bring details and ideas to the present in a new and exciting way.”

The process of converting these garments to a computer generated dress for a 3D avatar yields astonishing results. Being vintage and highly constructed, some with corsets, yards of fabric and even boning, the dresses that McFadden 3D-rendered were a challenge. With these garments being older and fragile, there were unique steps taken. 3D rendering vintage garments requires attention to lots of small and specialized details in order to make sure that fabric is as flowing and life-like in the digital world, as it is in person, according to a press release.

Using AccuMark Silhouette, McFadden was able to actually trace the finished garments using an advanced stylus. After drawing lines around the entire piece in detail and connecting many dots, she took pictures of the original fabric and used these as fill to reproduce the details in the fabric on the computer. McFadden then pulled the piece up on the AccuMark screen and fit the garment to an avatar, which helped see the dress in 3D through state-of-the-art simulation system.

Gerber Technology delivers industry-leading software and automation solutions that help apparel and industrial customers improve their manufacturing and design processes and more effectively manage and connect the supply chain, from product development and production to retail and the end-customer.
