Description

The process of apparel sampling produces a large amount of waste. Virtual prototyping is seen as beneficial in reducing impact of manufacturing waste, few studies have verified the fit, appearance and fabrication characteristics of virtually simulated multi-layered garments. The current literature into virtual prototyping typically focuses only on western garments (Morfin, 2017). The researchers determined that simulation and evaluation of cultural non-western garments would build on and contribute to existing research in this area. This study was designed to analyze the similarity of fit and appearance between physically constructed multi-layered cultural garments and those virtually constructed. Researchers created two Chinese historical garments and explored the relationship between the similarity of the appearance of physical and virtual models, taking into account the physical fabric mechanical properties, and the fabric objective measuring data such as weight, thickness, breaking strength, and elongation.
