Netherlands based Knitwear Lab rounded up its Paris Fashion Week season with two successful Knitwear Lab Showrooms, which were filled with beautiful knitwear, lots of inspiration, and future-forward developments on its Virtual Knitting technology.

“At our Knitwear Lab– Showrooms in Paris, the collections of eight designers were exposed with focus on the integration of virtual processes into physical knitwear development. The designers’ creative vision was translated both into physically developed knitwear swatches and garments, as well as into virtual garments, placed into specially designed environments,” said Cherish Brouwer, Co-founder and Creative Director at Knitwear Lab.

“The Showroom space allowed us to merge the physical and digital outcomes of the project and to showcase them to all creative professionals who visited us during Paris Fashion Week.”

“Together, with the inspiring mens and womenswear designers, we embarked on a journey of revolutionising industrial knitwear development. Thanks to virtual development, the production process allows to bring the designs to life with ease and with the benefit of reducing massive waste.”

Knitwear Lab’s extensive knitwear knowledge combined with the latest 3D software and Stoll Create Plus opens up a world of sustainable, cost-efficient, and design-driven sample development and knitwear production.

Knitwear Lab also celebrated its 10th anniversary with a festive gathering and soirée, at its own Showroom during Women’s Fashion Week. “We are proud to have been part of the industry for many years now. We have grown into a prominent knowledge and development centre in the field of innovative and sustainable knitwear design. We love creating beautifully envisioned knitwear pieces with love and care, combining material research with smart technological knitwear solutions, all with a design-driven perspective. We are also passionate about educating the next generation of students and professionals, emphasizing the importance of creating a better environment for product development in our world,” said Cherish Brouwer.
