CAD/CAM designer, manufacturer and distributor Lectra has launched the latest addition to its Design Solution suite, Kaledo Style.

The program, like its predecessors, is a garment creation and illustration solution that enables apparel designers to quickly create garments, test colour and fabric combinations, and produce storyboards within the one tool.

However, Kaledo Style is unique in that it allows the definition, creation and communication of garments in a collection, thus broadening the scope of traditional industry or off-the-shelf drawing tools.

It also incorporates style, sizing and component information, enabling designers to facilitate its communication to internal teams and external business partners.

Kaledo Style is designed to integrate with Lectra's U4ia and PrimaVision textile design applications, as well as the company's various colour management, digital printing and prototyping solutions.
