Australian Fashion Council

The AFC, supported by City of Sydney, has partnered with technology companies Style Atlas, Bandicoot, Couture Cad, Ponz Studios, Neuno and ORDRE to create a workflow for the Australian Fashion Industry using 3D design technology. This new workflow will help fashion businesses adopt 3D design technology in an effort to reduce overheads, costs, textile waste and carbon emissions through the design and sampling process.

12 fashion businesses will be selected to trial 3D design technology with a selection of their products, and work with the technology companies to overcome obstacles and find collaborative solutions.

At each milestone, fashion and technology businesses deep dive into challenges, discuss collaborative solutions and how technology can overcome these obstacles. These sessions are open to industry, to find out more and register, see below.

A curated group of fashion brands, from enterprise to emerging (such as Cue, Bianca Spender, Matteau, Daniel Avakian, Eupheme, Palasade, Ramp Tramp Tramp Stamp, West 14th and Arthur Ave) will trial a 3D development workflow combining the solutions of multiple tech partners, designed to reduce the financial cost, time wastage and environmental damage created by the traditional sampling process.
