OptiTex has added a new tool to its 3D Runway Designer 10 software to give designers more control over the use of colour in their collections and convey this to manufacturers.

Color Manager enables designers to select a colour scheme for both individual garments and full collections and to provide this scheme to everyone involved in the design process.

Designers can also choose and change colours in real time and view the results immediately.

"Our new Color Manager will appear anytime a user clicks on a colour control, providing an extended set of tools that promote both creativity and collaboration," says Ran Machtinger, OptiTex's president and CEO.
