World of Digital Fashion
Six companies will present their latest products and services from e-commerce to cutting, using various workflow scenarios in hall 4.
Personalization and production on demand are two essential elements for the clothing and fashion industry of the future. On the one hand in the context of sustainability, on the other hand in the context of the increasing digitalization. The fact that classic retailing is struggling is present since a few years. Solutions are sought which avoid oversupply and price discounts and increasingly involve the customer in the developing processes – and thus the experience.
The customer as co-designer as a new business model
This is why new business models are emerging that increasingly involve customers at the design process. The focus are configurators that allow customers to act as co-designers and order clothing according to their desire, requirements and body measurements. Such customization of clothing means, however, that corresponding processes have to be digitized and many technological components have to be interlinked in an interdisciplinary manner.
For this reason, six companies from areas of visualization, CAD cutting system, automatic body measurement as well as cutting and process automation, have working together.
Customization can be so easy
At one workflow, visitors will have the opportunity to configure an article at the booth. A smartphone app determines the body measurements, which will be used in the selected article. After submitting the order in the web shop, the corresponding marker can be cut minutes later at the single layer cutter. After sewing all pieces together, your personalized garment is ready to go!

With “pod – Pattern on Demand”, customers are enabled to act as co-designers and to modify their products themselves. In addition, manufacturers and suppliers benefit from a fully automatic transfer of individual made-to-measure orders from the web shop to a marker for the cutting room. In this way, individual orders can be processed efficiently and with a high degree of security. Process automation combines e-commerce, visualization, automated body measurement, CAD and production in a unique and integrated workflow!
The construction based on body measurements with parametric pattern creation without increments is the core competence of Grafis and an indispensable element when it comes to the creation of individual made-to-measure patterns. In addition to the design program, the Grafis CAD license also includes a professional marker-making program as well as import and export interfaces.
