Geek chic: When fashion meets technology - BBC News

Geek chic: When fashion meets technology - BBC News | Julien Fournié | Scoop.it
Fashion engineers For Julien Fournie geek is the new chic

While computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) is not a new technology, it has rarely been used in the fashion world before but French fashion designer Julien Fournie wants to change that.

Mr Fournie began working in fashion industry under Jean-Paul Gaultier but these days he is more likely to be found hanging out with engineers than with fashionistas.

He has teamed up with engineers at Dassault Systemes, a French software company which more usually creates 3D designs for the car and aerospace industries.

The engineers set about designing software that could turn Mr Fournier's sketches into his next collection.

"At the beginning I was like a laboratory rat, lots of engineers and geeks around me. But they listened to me, they wanted to find solutions for me. They videoed my habits of working, they wanted to know how I create," he said.

Recently Mr Fournie has been experimenting with making clothes from neoprene, a type of rubber.

It is a difficult material to work with and Mr Fournie's seamstresses suggested that the only way to stitch it would be to use glue.

The engineers worked out ways to work with new materials

"To my mind a glued dress wasn't very sexy," he said.

So he handed the problem over to the engineers.

"They found the right pressure for the needle so it didn't break the material," he said.

The software can also work out how certain fabrics will drape, cutting out the need for expensive experimentation with the real thing.

"Before I used to sketch from front, back and side and it was difficult. Now I can sketch straight into 3D. I have a digital library of fabric to test and I can explore new shapes and silhouettes.

I am like a child with a new toy," he said.

Dassault Systèmes, a producer of 3D and product lifecycle management solutions (PLM), has launched FashionLab, a technology incubator dedicated to fashion designers and stylists to explore and test new concepts using 3D, in London.
FashionLab is aimed at giving designers a new 3D technology that allows them to integrate design, simulation and collaboration tools required to create an entire collection, the company said.
Early ambassadors of the FashionLab include Julien Fournié for haute couture, Jonathan Riss from Jay Ahr House for haute jewellery, embroideries, accessories and ready-to-wear, and François Quentin for haute watchmaking, and these luxury fashion designers believe that 3D can propel fashion to new heights.
These partners are working closely and exchanging ideas with Dassault Systèmes engineers through FashionLab, and creating new and innovative solutions for high-end fashion design.
Mr Fournié said: “This partnership has strengthened my belief that 3D will revolutionise collaboration and design in the fashion industry. It is really exciting for a fashion house like mine to be part of this adventure.”
Jerôme Bergeret, director of FashionLab at Dassault Systèmes, said: “FashionLab will deliver the power of 3D experiences to a new audience and develop the next generation of fashion designers. This is a totally new approach — a breakthrough for Dassault Systèmes and the world of Fashion solutions.”
He added that the technology is pushing boundaries, and the company’s mission is to create a 3D virtual modelling and collaborative tool that meets the needs of the fashion industry.
“With FashionLab, designers will go beyond the limits of their imagination, building tomorrow’s fashion industry using the latest leading software technologies,” Mr Bergeret said.

Crean tela "inteligente" con bacterias, té y levadura

Aunque diseñar ropa con el uso de computadoras no es algo nuevo, esta técnica se está extendido en el mundo de la moda, algo que el diseñador francés Julien Fournie quiere cambiar.

Fournie empezó a trabajar en la industria de la moda con Jean-Paul Gaultier, pero ahora está más en contacto con ingenieros que con fashionistas.

Los ingenieros trabajan en programas de diseño que puedan convertir los bocetos de Fournier en una nueva colección.

“Al principio era como una rata de laboratorio, muchos ingenieros e informáticos a mi alrededor. Pero ellos me escucharon, querían hallar soluciones para mí. Grabaron mis hábitos de trabajo, querían saber cómo hago mis creaciones”, dijo.

Recientemente, Fournie ha experimentado con la confección de prendas de neopreno, un tipo de goma. Es un material muy difícil de trabajar y, según Fournie, la única forma de hacerlo sería uniendo las piezas con pegamento.

Por su parte, FashionLab trabaja en un “espejo mágico”, que podría usarse en las tiendas para que los clientes puedan ver una imagen virtual de sí mismos con distinta ropa.

“La tienda podría tener un espejo mágico con un avatar personal con las medidas exactas de tu cuerpo para mostrarte cómo te verías con la ropa nueva”, explicó Jerome Bergeret, director de FashionLab.

Impressions Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 "First Ecstasy"

Impressions Haute Couture Spring-Summer 2012 "First Ecstasy" | Julien Fournié | Scoop.it
Based on its collaboration with Julien Fournie
FashionLab unveils new technology breakthroughs for fashion design

FashionLab, a technology incubator created by Dassault Systemes, presented the first results of its collaboration with Julien Fournie, during the Spring-Summer 2012 Couture Fashion Week.

Over the past year, FashionLab and Julien Fournie have worked together to develop 3D solutions, in grade of reproducing fabrics' reactions in real life with digital tools. The FashionLab team of engineers has designed an experience to develop a virtual piece in 3D, in order to compose a 3D silhouette using sketching techniques based on the designers' drawing know how.

With this new tool, a fashion designer can explore lines which he usually sketches in two dimensions only with a full volume rendering. The designer can work and visualize from every possible angle he choses in the digital world. With their tool, designers can also build drapings, add embroideries or rhinestones, calculate precisely their projected use of materials. Thanks to an original online digital library, the fashion designer and its studio can also investigate materials to visualize, study, improve a virtual prototype before they make the real-life dummy and piece, accelerating and enhancing thus their creative process before they get to work on the real-life mannequin.

FashionLab is a technology incubator dedicated to fashion designers and design studios. FashionLab provides the tools to help the world of fashion cross the new fields opened by virtual 3D. It marries Dassault Systemes' engineering abilities with the creative capacities of fashion designers, integrating fashion industry's know-how. Its offering to the sphere of fashion targets to cover all possible needs to design an entire collection and make it come to real life, integrating various devices: design, simulation and collaboration tools.

Jerome Bergeret, Director of FashionLab, together with Julien Fournie, "Guest Member" of Paris Haute Couture fashion week, unveiled these new technology breakthroughs on January 24th, just after the Julien Fournie "First Ecstasy" Couture runway show for Spring-Summer 2012.

Dassault Systèmes officially launched its FashionLab technology incubator to the UK press at W Hotel in London’s Leicester Square. Karen McCandless reports back from the event

Hosted by Jerôme Bergeret, director of FahionLab, the event marked a milestone in the company’s progress in the consumer goods and retail industry, which the company entered for the first time in 2006.

Bergeret, presenting from a tablet device and drawing all the information from the cloud, discussed the reasons behind Dassault Systèmes’s new 3D offering for the fashion industry.

First launched back in November 2011, the company is continuing to evolve the offering with three key projects: trends gathering, store management and 3D holistic design solutions for fashion designers.

With FashionLab, we are introducing 3D earlier in the design process to enable new experiences for consumers

Jerôme Bergeret, Dassault Systèmes Bergeret explained how FashionLab fits in with Dassault Systèmes’ vision of providing not just a solution for customer, but also the customers of its customers. He said: “With FashionLab, we are introducing 3D earlier in the design process to enable new experiences for consumers. This could be interactive digital signage in airports or digital walls and virtual dressing rooms in stores.”

Dassault Systèmes is collaborating on FashionLab with leading fashion designers Julien Fournié, Jonathan Riss, artistic director of the JAY AHR House, and François Quentin, a designer of complex luxury watches and founder of 4N.

Fournié took to the stage at the event to talk about how FashionLab has simplified the design process, as well as making it more fun. In particular, the 3D capabilities in FashionLab helped the French fashion designer work out how he could make an haute couture dress out of neoprane plastic. The 3D technology incubator enabled Fournié to find the right pressure of the needle on the fabric.

He said: “Fashion designers are often scared of technology especially in haute couture – they think it will hinder the creative process and make the clothes less special and unique. But the engineering team at Dassault Systèmes really listened to me and adapted the tools to my unique way of working.

“Before I had to sketch every drawing by hand many times over, but that has all changed with FashionLab. It allows me to be more precise and takes care of many of the tasks we previously carried out by hand, which actually enhances my creativity. But this is only just the beginning.”

NEW BREED

Julien Fournié

Parisian womenswear designer Julien Fournié started out studying at medical school in Paris, before a chance encounter with a fashion journalist while sketching in the park inspired him to change course. “She was startled by my sketches in anatomy. We discussed colours and how to capture and translate the energy of nature in fashion design. That is the day I decided to train as a designer,” he explains. Clearly a natural talent, Fournié went on to graduate from the esteemed Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, setting up his eponymous label in 2009 and being awarded the Grand Prize for Creativity of the City of Paris in 2010. Since January 2011 he has had guest member status of the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, allowing his super-feminine collections to be a part of the Chambre’s official calendar of runway shows. “My goal is to give women their own weapons in the sexual battle of the genders, to give them strength and confidence through the garments I create,” he says. “It's about encouraging them not to mimic men; not to steal masculine wardrobe elements, but to reintegrate their own in a new way.” Fournié looks to a diverse mix of high and low culture for his references, which include designers Charles James, Geoffrey Beene and Claude Montana alongside manga, movies and literature. He has had an ongoing theme of zips and fastenings throughout his collections, working with YKK closely to create new colours, plastics and metals and even a metallic glitter induction in collaboration with the company.
