Buffalo Loves Cotton: OptiTex Project

The students in the Fashion Technology program at Buffalo State College working on the collaborative Buffalo State Loves Cotton project [sponsored by Cotton INC]  recently completed computerized flat patterns for garments that were designed by students in another class. Once the garment patterns were developed using the OptiTex PDS application they were stitched together and the repeat designs that were developed by another class were applied to them and then simulations were created using the OptiTex 3D module. Pasted below is a four-way image of a 3D garment simulation using the OptiTex system.

To see many more of the OptiTex students designs and video rotational views of their garment simulations CLICK THIS LINK to access the FTT Adobe Student Gallery Buffalo Loves Cotton OptiTex post. These garments will be featured in Runway 4.0. The April 16th, 2011 Runway 4.0 event tickets are currently on sale. CLICK HERE to get ticket info.

Optitex has an online 3D virtual clothing application where you can try on garments and view them in 3D mode. CLICK HERE to link to it.

Buffalo Loves Cotton Fashions

Another phase of the Buffalo Loves Cotton concluded when a grouping of print repeat designs that the students created as part of the Buffalo Loves Cotton project were selected along with fashion flats from another group of students. The selected prints were combined with the fashion flats to develop the Buffalo Loves Cotton fashion grouping. You can view the selected prints on the garments by CLICKING HERE.

The garment grouping will be featured in Runway 4.0. The April 16th, 2011 Runway 4.0 event tickets are currently on sale. CLICK HERE to get ticket info.
