Technology creates new opportunities constantly and choices are affected by the changes in the customer values. We wish to develop, learn and take part in the changes, as well as help the garment industry utilize the new approaches enabled by digitalization.

Fashion Team LT – Competence and software programs in the garment industry 

Fashion Team LT helps Finnish garment industry businesses, pattern makers and designers utilize the best software and the newest technology in the patterning and designing of clothes. The mission of the company founded over 20 years ago consists of offering the garment industry globally used solutions based on evolving technology. The company provides solutions and services to SMEs as well, so everyone has an opportunity to operate on the market on an equal basis.

Finnish Fashion Team LT is accredited reseller and trainer of Grafis CAD and VStitcher software in Finland and Scandinavia. In the last few years, the market area has expanded to Baltic countries, especially Latvia. The company also provides support services for users of Grafis and VStitcher in Finnish and English.

Fashion Team has trained both teachers and students in clothing industry schools, as well as pattern making professionals in number of businesses and theatre costume departments in Finland, Scandinavia, and Latvia. Since then, the Browzwear 3D VStitcher software has been released to supplement Grafis, and employees passionate about the future of the garment industry and its software have joined the team along the way. 

In addition to selling software and conducting training, Fashion Team LT offers the garment industry actors a variety of different services. The experts utilize a variety of software with which they implement services for the needs of the businesses, publishing houses and individual designers who are working in the garment industry. At the same time, the team ensures that they retain their competence and keep up with the development.

Assistance and improvements from the super geeks of the garment industry

Liisa Turtianen “I discovered Grafis in the 90’s during my studies. As part of my career, I adopted Grafis from the beginning, and I trained Grafis users around Finland while fulfilling custom-made orders. 

Our business is based on the fact that we truly can create patterns, designs and clothes on our own. All of this is possible because we are utilizing the full potential of the software that we are using. This is the only way to make sure that we have the ability to train our customers to make full use of Grafis and VStitcher. We offer product support in Finnish and English, and we wish to help our customers find the best possible solutions.” 

Roosa Vilpponen “I joined the company in 2019, through an internship. I learned to use Grafis in the Savonia University of Applied Sciences, and I familiarized with VStitcher during practical training. Working at Fashion Team LT has further strengthened my know-how.

In school, I had the opportunity to familiarize myself with a variety of different software, but out of all the 3D software it was VStitcher that really convinced me. The other software is not nearly as versatile. My work consists of using the Grafis software to create and grade patterns for two of the largest handicraft journals in Finland and other customers. My favorite part of the job is the fact that I can enjoy a great viewpoint from which I get to observe the current situation and the future trends of the garment industry. There are versatile tools available already, and they are developing for the better in the future. It’s very important to inform Finnish businesses about the new opportunities”.

Taija Kokkonen “I started working at Fashion Team in early 2023, while finishing my studies in fashion design. In my studies I focused on digital garment design, and I familiarized many kinds of techniques and software. I got to know the people of Fashion Team through an internship in Savonia UAS Digital & Circular Fashion House -project.

My work tasks consist of pattern making and grading services, as well as developing and executing 3D-services. The best thing in my job is the variety of tasks. There is always something new to learn in the developing field of digital garment design, and I get to use these things in my work right away. It has also been great to see that Finnish businesses in garment industry are more and more interested in utilizing digitality.”

Even though the work conducted by Fashion Team LT and its experts is firmly rooted in practice, deep down they are super geeks of the garment industry who have been hooked on the world of 3D. At times, the work is seasonal, and the roster is strengthened with industry experts and super geeks as needed. The team seeks learning from around the world, for example, from the Texprocess trade fair in Frankfurt and the industry training courses. Naturally, the experts are always observing the development of the garment industry software and webstores.

3D modelling unites the garment industry

When the developing software and services in the garment industry are combined correctly, there will be a revolution in the patterning, design, marketing, and sales of clothing. At best, product design and pattern making can be fully digitalized using the Grafis CAD and 3D VStitcher software. Fitting the patterns virtually in a 3D software on an avatar reduces drastically the manufacturing needs of the prototype models.

The sample models of the clothes can also be mostly replaced with images created with 3D software. When this is done, pre-marketing can be done, and product catalogues can be created without a single piece of clothing having been made. Clothes will no longer have to be photographed on models and the products can be made available for sale on the webstore quickly. Digitalization also makes it possible to manufacture clothing on demand. With Grafis AddOn (Pattern On Demand, POD) connected to the webstore, the customer is able to customize products of their choosing based on the available options.

Globally developing 3D services simplify the customer experience online and enable virtual fitting. In the future, customers can fit clothes virtually in so called virtual fitting rooms using avatars tailored to their body measurements.

Large businesses around the world have already implemented the possibilities and new approaches enabled by 3D software. At the same time, the garment industry geeks at Fashion Team are developing their 3D skills through both training and practical work.

Everyone has a chance to become inspired and be a part of the latest development of the garment industry. Feel free to contact Fashion Team when you want to transfer your products on the internet in a customer-friendly and environmentally sustainable way.
