Digital product creation has proven to be a lifeline for fashion during the pandemic. Now one of the industry's biggest challenges is translating that lifeline into lasting organisational change.
We talk to New Balance's VP of Design, and Kalypso's Digital Product Creation & Transformation Lead, about the evolution of digital assets and workflows - from virtual samples to the metaverse - and whether DPC can serve as a model for other technology-driven change.
In the pursuit of precise fit and personalisation, fashion is leaping from traditional product photography straight to 3D avatars and consumer body data capture. But are brands missing out on the chance to get the best of both worlds?
Can a 3D garment asset replace a tech pack? The answer cuts to the heart of the difference between a virtual sample and a true digital twin.
How far has the vision for end-to-end digital transformation been realised? And how prepared are the next generation of fashion talent? We put together a unique event, in partnership with The University Of Manchester and a panel of forward-thinking technology vendors, to find out.
Against a backdrop of historic change, fashion should be pursuing a reset rather than a rebound. A new report makes the case for not just why, but how.
