Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials-is pleased to host a breakfast briefing in London with their partner Pantone.

The event will feature presentations from Lectra and Pantone who will outline the importance of managing
design processes, including colour management, in order to respond efficiently to the fashion market's constantly changing needs.

Colour is critical in design, but it can also be very hard and expensive to control. The combination of Pantone
technology and Lectra's design solutions provides designers with the ability to enhance the quality and speed of exchanges between design, development and production, while keeping to the company's original design

"Our customers are having to reduce time to market and cost of producing collections, whilst responding to
constant demand of newness in-line with season's trends. To help them cope with these challenges Lectra's design solutions and Pantone's colour management technology help customers to be more efficient without sacrificing on quality or creativity," said Mark Lyness, Managing Director of Lectra UK.

Pantone will also be pleased to present Spring /Summer 2014 colour trends to the audience.

The event is on Tuesday 26 March.  9am registration for 9.30am start at London College of Fashion. Registration is complimentary; please contact Jenni Murphy: j.murphy@lectra.com
