Assyst presents the Vidya Award at Texprocess
Assyst offers this competition for young designers every year. The main condition is that entrants must work with the 3D simulation software Vidya. At the awards ceremony at the Texprocess, industry experts were discussing how important the skilled use of 3D has become for the fashion industry: Holger Knapp of the Textilwirtschaft moderated a panel discussion between Antje Christophersen, Hochschule Niederrhein, Hans Peter Hiemer, b4b GmbH, Roland Schuler, Director Technical Product Management at the IB Company (a Peek & Cloppenburg subsidiary) and Dr. Andreas Seidl, CEO of Assyst.
Virtual simulation, real sewing
“Bienvenue a? la Moulin Rouge” – that was the motto of the Vidya Awards 2019. Any technical college and university which has a textile and clothing technology department could participate, provided that it used the Vidya 3D simulation software for teaching its students. The task for the award was to design a garment that would reflect the legendary style of the Moulin Rouge – either a one- piece or two-piece for women. The rendering and scene functions in Vidya had to be used to reproduce the unique mood of the Moulin Rouge. The garment was also to be simulated on a posed avatar and sewn not only virtually but also physically.
First place for Anna Maier from the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences
First place and €1,000 go to Anna Meier from the Niederrhein University of Applied Sciences. This work, with its outstanding simulation quality and a particularly beautiful rendering, which summarized the topic “Moulin Rouges” with a fitting pose, really convinced the judges. The realization of the real garment also attracted the jury’s attention thanks to its particularly careful processing.
Second place for joint work of the Kerschensteinerschule
Second place and €500 go to a joint project of the Kerschensteinerschule, the “Elephant” design, submitted by Sofie Florentine Flad, Leonie Kadura and Clara Heynhold. This group performance impressed the jury thanks to its concept, which was impressively accentuated by textures and poses in 3D Vidya. The outfit consists of two parts, which were also manufactured in very high quality.
