Fashion demands the rapid delivery of new trends, and the realities of business dictate that they are designed from a broader base of components and in a wider variety of styles than ever before. By leveraging the power of Verve Sketch, garment technicians and designers can create industrialised designs, on trend and on time.
Specially designed to streamline the apparel design process, Verve Sketch offers the user instant access to a vast library of over 10,000 vector drawn product styles and components—spanning across all categories, including 2,000+ womenswear styles, 2,000+ menswear styles, 2,000+ childrenswear styles and over 4,000 components.
Seasonal trends originate in fashion capitals all over the world, and the best designers scrabble to adapt those trends into their own designs. Verve Sketch allows those garment technicians and designers to create those seasonal styles quickly and easily, using their own inspiration and our library of scaled, industrialised components.
Verve Sketch has an intuitive graphical user interface. With no costly acclimatisation period or training, your best designers can immediately identify and begin using the exact styles and components they need. With seamless integration to Adobe Illustrator or your design program of choice, a virtual cart of those components is delivered to their workstation with a single click.
The Verve Sketch library is comprehensive, but choice is nothing without detail. Each component – from coats to cuffs – is vectorised. Accompanied by industry standard seams and notations in English and simplified Chinese, the entire Verve Sketch library is ready for production.
With a widespread range of items covering the whole apparel spectrum – complete garments to product outlines – and individual components like cuffs, collars, trims, darts, wash care labels and sleeves, Verve Sketch enables designers to tailor every aspect of their products in exacting detail. Nothing is lost in the transition from design to manufacture.
All product styles and components have been created based on industry pattern cutting techniques, increasing transition speeds between design sketches, pattern construction and prototypes. Verve Sketch provides a standardised collection of avatars (virtual mannequins of men, women and children) on which users can base their respective designs, ensuring that relative sizes and creative designs remain consistent across an organisation’s entire workflow.
Verve Sketch is a ‘Cloud’ based application with all the content delivered rapidly via the Internet, and without the need for a local central storage device for a designer’s construction drawings. This allows for the product style libraries to be seamlessly updated with new garments, parts and the latest industry trends on a regular basis.
The Verve Sketch program integrates fully with all current versions of Adobe™ Illustrator (including CS3, CS4 and CS5), the design tool of choice for 95% of apparel fashion houses & brands, as well as other vector drawing applications such as Microsoft™ Expression Design 4 and Corel™ Draw. Aside from the commercial design suites, Verve Sketch will also deliver multi-layered, vector based content to a number of a open-source computer aided design suites such as Inkscape, meaning Verve Sketch can be fully utilised by any apparel business no matter how big or small.
Verve Sketch has been developed with portability in mind and has been built on Adobe’s Air framework meaning the application is independent of operating system—with versions available across all platforms including: Microsoft Windows, Ubuntu Linux, Apple™ Mac and Android™.
