Optitex adds Alvanon 3D avatar library to O/Cloud

Fashion design software developer Optitex has extended its collaboration with Alvanon to make the apparel size and fit specialist’s 3D Avatar Library available to its O/Cloud users.

Fashion design software developer Optitex has extended its collaboration with Alvanon to make the apparel size and fit specialist’s 3D Avatar Library available to its O/Cloud users.

The move sees the Alvanon Body Platform’s (ABP) library of over 6,000 3D virtual avatars – each representing a specific brand’s fit standards – integrated into Optitex O/Cloud’s 3D environment.

This means Optitex customers, apparel design and development teams, fashion brands and retailers, can access these correctly sized and shaped 3D avatars to test patterns in all sizes, and validate fit.

It also allows users to work with brand and vendor designers, pattern makers, and collection product managers dispersed around the globe in different locations and time zones, helping to make both collection and style-level decisions faster and easier.

3D garments simulated on Alvanon virtual bodies can be shared and reviewed over O/Cloud, with view options and tools including real-time 3D sphere rotation and comment. 

The library of 3D virtual bodies will also enable pattern makers to run online fit sessions via the cloud, and collaborate with all stakeholders – supervisors, designers, and team members, to review how garments look and feel on their Alvanon virtual body.

Users will also be able to navigate the style, view all of its colourways, and add comments directly on the garment, all of which will help accelerate the design review process. 

“At Alvanon, we believe that the 3D journey begins with the 3D avatar. Not just any avatar, but the fit standard that represents the brand’s target customers’ body shapes and sizes,” says Jason Wang, COO of Alvanon.

“It’s via close collaboration with leading 3D digital software providers such as Optitex that we can deliver our range of virtual avatars, and provide the fit accuracy that brands and retailers demand.”
