Creating fashion products should be the same as creating digital products.
The fashion design process should take 10 minutes- not 10 weeks.

Modern Brands is building the first open-source for fashion platform in the world.

Our focus is on the upfront portion- the design and development piece. Small to large brands find it difficult to get through this process efficiently and cost-effectively. Even with all of the innovation in 3d, and with other "all in one" platforms now available... complexity and cost in the design process plague companies.

Not only that, but the gap between makers and designers is 'huge'. A very large hurdle for start-ups, D2C brands, and even large companies. Why are we addressing our supply chains without confronting how inefficient and convoluted the upfront process is?
Brands need to hire talented people to basically build everything from scratch. Comp samples are measured and copied, new patterns and techpacks are made, sourcing, sampling, fitting......

Brands need to hire talented people to basically build everything from scratch. Comp samples are measured and copied, new patterns and techpacks are made, sourcing, sampling, fitting... even if it's done in 3d the compiling of all of the elements is a process.

If you look at the landscape of fashion today- you know that its all trend base (the companies are all making essentially the same things). Google " denim jacket" and you will find jackets ranging from Balenciaga to Walmart. What this means is FASHION is not selling the product, they are selling the brand/lifestyle.

ModernBrands provides these "elements" of fashion designs (tech packs, patterns, materials, samples, vendors, etc) in an open-source format. Our business model can be equated to Wordpress, Red Hat, or even Canva. There is an element for free, but we upsell into services and are building a robust contributor network of both fashion industry professionals and code-based programmers/makers. We provide the "code for the products, and up-sell services to make, deliver, and ultimately sell for less time, money and complexity.

Our goal is to connect into ALL technologies via our B2B open-source solution. We want our product to work for ANYONE> from the mom-prenuer starting a kid's clothing line from their kitchen table to the larger brands just taking their steps into revamping their design and material catalog into 3D/fitting software.
