As the fashion industry continues to adapt its businesses through the ongoing pandemic, the key industry players forge ahead to accelerate the digitisation of their supply chains.
Going by the idea of digitisation, Browzwear, a leading 3D tech provider for the apparel industry, and The Bridgt Atelier, a digital hub for training and showcasing developed by leading Vietnamese garment manufacturer Oasis Garment Ltd. – have collaborated to expand the influence of 3D throughout apparel manufacturing industry across Vietnam and South-East Asia.
The partnership is aimed at supporting manufacturers alike, by equipping manufacturers in the growing Vietnam market with the solutions and knowledge, to make better business product decisions with their customers.
By leveraging state-of-the-art visualisation tools and 3D technology provided by Browzwear, the design cycle is shortened to meet the fast-changing market demands. The ability to visualise the digital twin will enable Oasis and its customers to make decisions on style and product with greater agility.
The Bridgt Atelier, with this partnership, eyes to expand the influence of 3D across the apparel industry in Vietnam and create a bridge between fashion brands and manufacturers for a more efficient product lifecycle.
The company, in collaboration with Browzwear, is building a dedicated digital hub for showcasing and demonstrating workflows that are possible with 3D. The hub is also offering training and user support in the Vietnam market to develop further integration of 3D throughout the different areas of manufacturing. This will allow all Vietnam apparel manufacturers to gain hands-on experience as they gain knowledge on embedding 3D across the product development process and manufacturing workflow.
Ibrahim Ozsoy, Chairman & CEO, Oasis Garment Co Ltd. and Co-founder of The Bridgt Atelier, commented, “In light of the effects of the pandemic on the fashion industry, now more than ever is the time for apparel businesses to embrace digital technology in order to best navigate these challenging circumstances and be able to continue business as usual in times of uncertainty. I am excited to embark on the end-to-end product lifecycle together with Browzwear having the best-in-class tool for True to Life 3D, to enable the future state of the manufacturing industry.”
It’s worth noting here that Oasis Garments started its 3D journey in 2019 prior to the pandemic, and the advantages are unparalleled, as claimed by Ibrahim Ozsoy. “All in all 6-8 weeks just to know whether I will be able to proceed when we worked on physical samples. With the 3D asset, everything can happen within 24 hours, saving time, resources and of course costs.”
According to Eileen Tan, Regional Director-Asia, Browzwear, the company sees rapid growth in digitisation across Vietnam and the partnership with The Bridgt Atelier will establish the go-to digital hub, showcasing comprehensive digital workflows for manufacturer peer-to-peer sharing, and efficient learning and training facilities to gear up the next generation with digital skills for immediate deployment.
