VISAGE: Designing 3D yarns and fabrics from the fibre up




VISAGE has created a platform that allows designers of yarns and fabrics to create their new designs in a completely virtual way from the fibre or thread up, visualise them in 3D and share them easily with their customers in fashion design houses, brands and retailers.

Tridimensional effects and colour-realistic representation will provide a high-quality fabric surface visualization. Beyond the physical and dimensional characteristics of the fibres and yarns, the colours and patterns, the VISAGE tool also allows to simulate a wide range of special finishing effects.

The virtual creations can be easily shared and evaluated with by potential clients with the help of a plug-in viewer.

VISAGE is expected to drastically reduce the costs related to physical sample production and will speed up collaborative collection development between yarn and fabric designers and their fashion industry customers.

The VISAGE platform is the results of an industry-led EU project, realized by specialised software developers Domina (Italy) and ScotCad (UK) accompanied by 2 lead industry clients from the Italian fashion yarns and fabrics sector and support by research centre ENEA (Italy) and EURATEX, the European Apparel and Textile Confederation.
