Eloise.Fashion, a digital marketplace for the fashion industry, announces V1.0 of their new digital marketplace that offers apparel designers and brands access to the software, apps and suppliers required in design and bringing the product to market quickly, economically and sustainably.
The company is creating new sustainable business model with a digital platform in collaboration with industry leaders such as Gerber Technology and OnPoint Manufacturing.
The new site will help the designers and brands launch the products easily and quickly leveraging the use of industry-leading technology like Gerber’s AccuMark and providing access to on-demand manufacturing via micro-factories, such as OnPoint Manufacturing.
The model also dissolves the economic barriers and makes fashion design accessible to everyone who dreams of creating their own clothing in a ‘pay as they produce’ model.
The Gerber technology will be giving access to the digital technology for product development and production.
The AccuMark solution will help in pattern development, 2D/3D simulation and marker optimisation. This will enable the designers of various scales to quickly and efficiently design, develop and then produce products on demand, with MOQs as low as 1.
OnPoint Manufacturing, on the other hand, will be providing its on-demand manufacturing to Eloise.Fashion users. The solution will empower the designers with on-demand capabilities regardless of minimum order requirement.
Talking about the development, J. Kirby Best, CEO of PAAT (Purchase Activated Apparel Technology) and Eloise.Fashion said that the system will democratize the way fashion industry works. “The designers and brands will be able to take their designs from “creator to consumer”, with the help of the tools that we provide, within one platform without risking large amounts of money up front,” said Kirby.
The software if provided with a proper digital file can create a garment in 3 to 5 business days.
Other than these, three other companies: Fabric.com, Nimbly and Spoonflower have signed on to the Eloise.Fashion platform.
While the Fabric.com will help directly ship the fabric to OnPoint machine once chosen by the designer so that the fabric is ready as soon as the designer makes a sale, Nimbly will connect designers with on-demand knitting services, and Spoonflower works with designers worldwide on custom textile printing projects.
Eloise.Fashion website will be officially launched in November 2020.
