Gerber Technology - See Now, Buy Now - A Revolutionary New Purchase Model

We live in a world where instant gratification is more prevalent than ever. Consumers want options, and they want them presented to them in the fastest, most convenient way possible; the fashion world is no exception. This instant gratification model is now being used as a way for high-end designers to evolve with the ever-changing fast-fashion business brands, and to offer their clothing for purchase immediately after a runway show, as opposed to months after the designs are previewed. This see-now-buy-now runway method is completely shaking up the fashion world thanks to a select few bold designers.

“A change like the see-now-buy-now purchase model is felt during every step of the product lifecycle, as well as throughout the supply chain. So as a technology provider, one of our key missions is to provide our customers the business capability and agility to support these new consumer purchase models,” said Karsten Newbury, Vice President and General Manager, Software Solutions at Gerber.

According to #L2 INC, “Tom Ford was among the first of brands to pioneer this shift, but L2’s latest study on Fashion Week suggests that the idea of immediately buying runway items is no longer novel; 21% of brands with a Fashion Week runway show in 2016 incorporated some sort of direct-to-consumer e-commerce within their presentation.”

This shift in control gives power back to the consumer and allows them to dictate exactly what they want, when they want it. It’s a transformation that demands a conscious effort from designers to delve into their audience’s conversations via social media, in order to listen, engage and gain consumer intelligence.

“Gerber Technology provides powerful and innovative hardware and software leveraging cloud-based solutions that are designed specifically for designers, enabling the shift to an immediate purchase model. This gives industry thought leaders the flexibility to stay ahead of the curve and be prepared for what’s next,” said Newbury.

Danit Peleg on Her Latest Innovations in 3D Printed Garments

Interview by Elizabeth King, vice president, digital solutions community and ecosystem at Gerber Technology


How did you get involved in the recent international event?
Actually it's a funny story! When I was at ideation2015 in Las Vegas getting ready to give my first keynote ever, I got an email from the creative team behind the Paralympics Opening Ceremony. The creative team told me about the special segment they were planning for the ceremony. I loved the idea of a robot dancing with a double-leg amputee dancer wearing a 3D-printed dress. On top of that, it was a huge coincidence that the following day I was booked on a flight to Brazil for another conference appearance.

The creative team and I all thought it was a beautiful coincidence, and we met in Rio a couple of days later. We hit it off and worked on the dress and the segment together for the next 10 months.

Please explain your inspiration and the process behind building your 3D garment(s).

Whenever I design, I like to take my inspiration from very classic old paintings. I like the contrast of traditional artwork and new technology. I always modify the paintings and try to look at them from a new perspective.

For the new collection, my inspiration was 'The Birth of Venus' by Boticelli. I got inspired from this painting because I feel that, in many cases, technology enables a sort of "rebirth" for the Paralympic athletes, and with the help of technology, they can push their limits. That's also the reason why I chose to print the dress in a nude color. I took the diamond shapes present in the painting's composition and used them while designing the structure of the dress.
For my collection last year, I started the process with AccuMark® to make the patterns and then moved the patterns to Blender for 3D modeling. From there, I extracted the print files to send to the 3D printer, which is the non-traditional apparel manufacturing method I utilize for my unique clothing.

Can you describe how Gerber's AccuMark 3D helped you with the process you just described?
For this new dress (and upcoming collection), I worked closely with the AccuMark 3D team. Together we developed a faster workflow that is going to be the next generation of patternmaking. In the new software, I was able to work on a figure that had the same body measurements as Amy Purdy, the dancer in this segment. It saved me a ton of time and simplified the whole process significantly.

Where do you see the future of 3D printed garments?
3D printing is evolving fast. I imagine an incredible world where people will be able to download and print wearable, comfortable and environmentally-friendly clothes from home or from "printing boutiques" next to their homes. However, there are still two major challenges that we need to solve: the materials are still very basic and the desktop printers are too slow. I hope to be involved in helping solve these two challenges in the coming year.

And what about your own future? Where do you see yourself?
I want to keep pushing the limits of 3D printing and fashion. I think there is such an exciting opportunity to innovate in this industry. I want to be involved in making better materials, faster printers, and accessible software such as AccuMark 3D. I also want to see how we can push 3D printing to get closer to mass production. I am so happy to be working with Gerber in order to make software adapted to 3D printing.
