London-based fashion designer Maria Grachvogel has developed her spring/summer 2009 collection using design, pattern-making, and marker-making solutions from Lectra.

Each dress, blouse, and pair of trousers presented during the show was designed, developed, and produced using Lectra's Kaledo, Modaris, and Diamino software.

"I believe that great design combines art and functionality, so creativity, cut and fit are all equally important in my work," Maria said.

Kaledo, the design software platform, delivers a visual, virtual environment for creating and managing fashion collections and offers a range of design options.

The pattern-making solution Modaris help makes pattern creation easy and consistent, while Diamino can speed up the marker-making process and improve material efficiency.
