pushing the limits on 3d

The coming two summits will be dedicated to 1950’s & 60’s French Haute Couture and they are open for everyone to join.

We have invited Sophie Kurkdjian, Assistant Professor at the American University of Paris, to present a brief history of the fashion during these two decades, touching on the questions of production, of consumption and reception while exploring also the questions of gender and “femininity”.

Adobe Substance 3D, Assyst and Browzwear will additionally show workflows in their systems, and we will launch digital assets for the assignment.

Ready patterns will be available for 4 of the 6 assignments, ranging from beginners through intermediate to advanced. You choose the level you feel comfortable working on.

If you don’t have a 3D license, Assyst and Browzwear are currently offering free trial licenses.

Assyst users can register for a 4 weeks free trial versions of Vidya here. Contact Bettina Peichl for extension possibility.

Browzwear offer their free trial through the “Indie License” when you register with your private email address, more information here.

When you feel inspired to create a look of your own, feel free to either use our patterns as a base or create something completely new. Remember, we do not want to see copies of original designs and instead garments inspired from the six different themes.

With the additional months we have added in between the events, you will also be able to challenge and push yourself in 3D. Take this chance and invest time in making an animation or enhance your garment presentations in other programs such as Blender and Adobe Substance 3D.

The following software packages will be supported at the event:

We will provide following assets for the assignment:

  • Ready patterns for both Women’s size 36 Women’s size 38 (European Sizes).
  • Alvanon Body Platform avatar EU Women size 36 and 38
  • Digitized Silk and Wool fabrics from Italy

These events will be free of charge for anyone to join.
