Experience the Latest Innovations in Cotton Fabrics & Trends
Fashion can be transformative—people often use clothing and personal style to express themselves in different ways. Now, the world of fashion design is facing a transformation of its own, with the introduction of the new CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom, an online experience allowing users to discover the power of cotton through an immersive, cutting-edge platform that showcases the latest in cotton fashion trends and inspiration.
Explore the Showroom
The CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom is an interactive digital space that is designed to inspire and educate the fashion industry about the endless possibilities with cotton.
Through 3D garment visualizations and interactive features, users can engage with the newest cotton trends and fabrics for sustainable and stylish fashion. Not only is the showroom an immersive and innovative virtual experience, but it also functions to set trends, inspire creativity, and make fashion design a more sustainable and efficient practice.
“As the first fiber to push the frontier of digital fabrics, cotton has once again found an innovative way to support brands and designers. The CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom offers inspiration, practical concepts, and a way for designers, merchandisers, and product developers to think differently and creatively about using cotton.”Mark Messura, Senior Vice President of Global Supply Chain Marketing at Cotton Incorporated
Immersive & Innovative Virtual Experience
The CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom provides an engaging experience that transports users from a cotton field to a striking cotton boll-inspired architectural space, filled with stylish and innovative cotton fabrics and garments. Users can peruse a free digital library of 50 cotton fabrics in this visually stunning digital space.
The showroom brings cotton fabrics and garments to life through realistic 3D visualization. This innovative technology allows users to work with digital fabrics in a more realistic manner by showcasing how they actually scale and drape on virtual garments. Users can also access digital fabric files (i.e., CLO or Browzwear) for seamless integration into their own designs.
Trendsetting & Endless Inspiration
As certain aspects of the fashion industry move toward increased digitalization, staying ahead of the technology curve can help elevate fashion designers. Using the CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom, designers can experience a virtual environment featuring the latest fabric selections and fashion-forward garment designs to inspire their next collections, all of which are carefully selected exclusively for CottonWorks™ users—and all happening from the convenience of a computer screen. The showroom presents the perfect blend of virtual tools for endless experimentation and discovery with cotton fashion.
Sustainability is Key
Sustainability has become another issue of key importance within the fashion industry, with many consumers, brands, and retailers now gravitating toward fabrics and garments that are made using environmentally responsible methods, and created via a supply chain that is less wasteful of time and resources.1, 2
The CottonWorks™ Virtual Showroom allows users to discover the sustainable advantages of cotton as a versatile fiber, featuring fabrics crafted from recycled cotton, natural and recycled dyes, and sustainable finishing techniques. It also features fabrics that use minimal processing as well as innovative alternatives to garments such as synthetic fleece.
Additionally, the showroom allows for quicker, more efficient, and more ample fashion experimentation without the continuous cutting and shipping of fabric samples.
