Gerber Technology is collaborating with Stephanie London, a high end women’s wear designers, to launch a collection of garments based on fashion on-demand model.
The Gerber by Waldrip collection, will show how using the integrated technology can drastically reduce the lead time of a product and therefore reduce the market time.
“Working with Gerber Technology, opened my eyes to a whole new way of doing things. They have made everything quick and easy,” said Stephanie London, Owner, Designer Waldrip NYC.
The new collection has been made using the latest Gerber technology, thus eliminating all the tradition processes like paper patterns, a team of partners and a binder to manage and build tech pack, multiple rounds of physical samples before finalising a garment ready for production months later. “I was really amazed that within a matter of hours, I could see a 3D virtual sample that was well on the way to a final product. Gerber held my hand and educated me on all the technologies they have to help, from design through a personalised bespoke concept all the way up to small batch on-demand or mass production,” mentioned Stephanie London, Owner, Designer Waldrip.
“The Gerber by Waldrip Collection shows how technology makes purchase-activated fashion real, so you can design and produce based upon demand, staying on trend, optimising inventory and minimising markdowns,” said Ketty Pillet, Vice President of Marketing, Gerber Technology.
The increasing speed of change in fashion makes it difficult for fashion designers and developers to maintain pace with the market shift. Few of them are still using the traditional method of developing the product which generally takes months to complete. The use of these technological tools can reduce the production time drastically to a few days.
“Our collaboration with Stephanie shows how an end-to-end solution is just the beginning of how Gerber can help brands and manufacturers transform into agile organisations and meet the on-demand challenge,” Gerber plans to continue to demonstrate how its suite of end-to-end solutions supports agility from design to production workflows with the opening of its Innovation Center in New York City scheduled later this year,” said Ketty Pillet.
