Substance 3D in action – Hugo Boss industry case study

Sebastian Berg: Vice President for Business Operations Excellence Hugo Boss.

“As a fashion company, you really want to have superior product experience. And in that 3D can help a lot.

So even starting at the very beginning, in the design phase, the iterations the designer can do, the creativity he or she can bring to the table is so much bigger than working in the traditional, physical prototyping loop that takes much longer and that doesn’t really enable you to be creative on the spot.”

“For us, Adobe and the Substance 3D products have been helpful in raising the quality level. And as a premium fashion brand, we need a photorealistic result of our 3D styles that we feel confident to also showcase towards our end consumers.

Substance 3D improved our material quality and has enabled us to work on things such as embroideries and embossed logos, and really the fine details of a fashion style. We are now able to replicate them perfectly well in a 3D environment. And this has helped us in the wider sense of 3D adoption, and our digital transformation journey.”
