CLO is a 3D virtual fashion design software that enables ulta-realistic designs in the fashion and ready-to-wear industry. It reflects the physical characteristics of the fabric, such as drape, stretching and wrinkling, close to 95% realism. Thanks to the patented 3D physics engine, fabric and pattern-related errors are minimized, and the number of unnecessary prototypes and manufacturing samples can be reduced. Thus, manufacturers save on both fabric & material cost and design team costs. Clo 3D continues its educational studies and collaborations with many distinguished universities and academic institutions in Europe, America and the Far East.
