Tex-Data have secured the contract to supply apparel design software to the new design studios at leading high street favourite Bhs.
Thirteen Licenses of the Tex-Design™ CAD solution coupled with an extensive training schedule have recently been implemented. With the addition of the Tex-Knit, Tex-Check and Tex-Line plug-ins, the design teams at Bhs will be able to create and present realistic imaging of their latest lines.
Tex-Design is an apparel specific software application that enables the user to create realistic 2D images that represent the shape, colour and texture of a design before it has even been made.
The all in one nature of Tex-Design not only creates visually superior designs but also enables technically enhanced storyboards that will show the design range, knit simulations (including gauges), accurate product visualisations and an extensive colour palette.
The representation of the designs within the software are so accurate that designers know exactly what their product will look like as well as providing the exact technical information required by manufacturers.
Paul Noonan, Managing Director of Tex-Data Design Solutions said:“Because Tex-Design is specific to the textile and apparel industry it can generate designs that are as technically enhanced as they are professionally designed, thus revealing a greater insight into the imagination and thought processes behind the designer’s concepts.”
“We’re delighted that Bhs have chosen to work with us to supply their design teams with Tex-Design and to train them in getting the best out of the product.”
Exclusive nightwear designers Derek Rose Pyjamas has sought to streamline its design process with the installation of Tex-Design, Koppermann’s design application from Tex-Data Design Solutions.
With the implementation of Tex-Design, Derek Rose has been able to subtly alter a design and quickly apply it to the technical drawing of a garment, enabling them to visualise the design in its correct context and identify if the design needs any further changes.
As well as aiding the design creation, Tex-Design has also helped to maximise resources and minimise timescales within the company.
The traditional design method of cutting and pasting patterns together, and weaving a sample produced a minimum sample cloth of 20m that was often wasted. However, all design concepts can now be created and visualised within Tex-Design thus reducing unnecessary sampling and wastage.
By producing designs within Tex-Design Derek Rose is able to present to customers a range of designs and colour variations in a very short space of time, something that just wasn’t possible with the old way of working.
Nancy Rose-Pagani, Senior Designer at Derek Rose Pyjamas said: “We needed the capability to store designs effectively, creating a huge archive and Tex-Design facilitates this with ease. Garment visulisation is also very important for us as it is often costly to produce samples of everything we offer. Ultimately Tex-Design gives us design freedom and flexibility, it allows us to easily create, communicate and store ideas directing the Derek Rose product range forward.”
“We produce a very traditional product range with a rich heritage and we need to maintain that. However, the challenge for the design team is to develop the product for the future and we needed the tools that the tex-design application provides to enable us to do that.”
