NEW YORK–(COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Chargeurs * PCC Fashion Technologies today announced the launch of an exclusive and industry-first global partnership with CLO Virtual Fashion, a global leader in 3D clothing simulation technology. Through this collaboration, Chargeurs interlining items will be made available as digitized assets on the CLO platform, allowing fashion and apparel designers to add the interlinings directly into their virtual 3D designs. Chargeurs assets are the only interlinings available on the platform and their addition by CLO will allow designers to digitally iterate complete designs in real time, creating more accurate virtual garments.
“Our partnership with CLO is a revolutionary technology initiative as we are the first company in the interlinings industry to make our products available as digital assets that can be instantly added to 3D virtual fashion designs,” said Angela Chan, Director general manager and Chairman of Chargeurs * PCC Fashion Technologies. “Designers will now be able to easily integrate our digitized stabilizers to complement their visual creations and ensure a perfect fit on screen into CLO’s 3D design program. In the past, designers didn’t have the ability to access digitized interlinings, so they could only guess at best how a garment would truly fit, drape and look.
Chargeurs’ exclusive partnership with CLO will allow designers to create more accurate 3D visual simulations of clothing, thereby accelerating the time-to-market of brands. Adding the digital stabilizer assets to the CLO platform will also provide significant sustainability benefits, including reduced waste and resource use by eliminating the need to create and ship physical samples. between product development and manufacturing teams which are typically located in different regions. worldwide.
