z-emotion, a South Korean apparel tech company, has announced the launch of its 3D clothing design software, z-weave. The software develops 3D fashion products that speed up the product development process and reduce the costs of the design and development of a product.
According to z-emotion, it has acquired a proprietary 3D clothing simulation engine that allows users to develop virtual products in seconds. Beyond its goal of shortening the sampling process within the supply chain like existing players, z-emotion also enables end-consumers to interact with 3D garments in real time.
The high visual fidelity of z-weave’s 3D simulation results allows end-consumers to visualise combinations of different sizes and colours to suit their personalised body avatars in a 360-degree environment.
This live virtual fitting service helps consumers make purchasing decisions and optimises the conversion rates of online sales from e-commerce platforms.
“Over the years, the demand for innovations from global brands is growing. The COVID-19 epidemic is pushing companies to review their digital strategies. With open arms to embrace digital transformation, we hope to see z-emotion be a game-changer in the fashion world,” commented Dongsoo Han, CEO, z-emotion.
