Fashion Forward – Hung Yen 3D fabric collection

A textile digital revolution: 3D fabric scan to 3D garment prototyping
Pushing the boundaries of R&D for Hung Yen K&D, means expanding the horizon of product innovation, thinking about all the different aspects, to be always open to integrate technologies supportive of the brand’s demand that nowadays are in the need of fast adapting to where current and future consumer needs are going. Although the gap between different generations is reducing, there are common trends like “technology”, “creativity” and “sustainability” as common denominators.
3D fabric
Spatial computing, virtual reality, oculus, Metaverse are some of the many new 3D experience and AI based technologies that will gradually penetrate, among others also the transformation – already in place – of the textile industry. Today, we delve into the Fabric Digitalization process comparing the transformative impact of designing and envisioning apparel of 3D software compared to traditional methods.
The limits of traditional process Traditional design thinking often involves physical fabric and garment making samples, hindering efficiency and most important sustainability. This traditional approach in the past 10 years has gradually started to transition to a more efficient system, that relies today on digital standards data reading and sharing, with the use of sophisticated spectrophotometers, software and database principle. This enabled the switch in the process of defining a color collection, from the time consuming, un-efficient, un-sustainable submission of countless physical fabric’s samples to a smart exchange of standardized data that defines color’s parameters on sure-fire analytical coordinates, avoiding:
  • Time-consuming for manual sourcing, packing and shipping fabric samples;
  • Limited access to diverse range of fabrics that limits quick design iterations;
  • High shipping costs and prolonged development time;
  • Prone to errors process due to miscommunication and human error, or inconsistencies which can occur when relying on physical samples.
A game-changer technology with efficiency and sustainability as common denominators
At Hung Yen K&D we recognize the potential of fabric digitalization to streamline design processes, enhance collaboration, and foster a more innovative and sustainable future for the textile industry actively cooperating with the best service provider, to complete the digital scan of Hung Yen fabrics collections by 2025.
Enhanced efficiency: Designers can instantly access a vast library of digital fabric swatches, enabling faster and more efficient design exploration;
Improved collaboration: Teams across different locations can work seamlessly with the same digital fabrics, fostering better communication and collaboration;
Greater accuracy: Utilizing digital fabric properties in 3D software translates to more accurate and realistic garment simulations, minimizing errors and rework;
Sustainable practices: Digitalization reduces reliance on physical samples, minimizing waste and contributing to a more sustainable design process.
Hung Yen fabrics available in 3D digital
Fabric digitalization offers a game-changing solution by creating digital twins of physical fabrics. These digital files that we can provide to our customers, capture the fabric’s technical features, for a realistic rendering of the fitting properties of the prototyped garment:
Bespoke styling: We provide parametric scans of some of our Hung Yen fabrics in neutral white color, for designer to customize the models with colors and patterns at their own need;
Physical properties: the scan is not just a visual rendering, weight, thickness, elongation data are embedded within the digital file to render a realistic 3D model with responsive simulation of the behavior of the fabric in different shapes and conditions;
Compatibility: We provide 3D digital fabric scan in formats compatible with the following 3D garment software and applications: Clo3D, Style 3D, Browzwear, Optitex, VStitcher.
