RVCA produces workout-specific gear for some of the world’s most prominent MMA and Boxing athletes, sponsoring and providing rashguards, base shorts, and Gis to its athletes.
This collaboration felt it needed to be replicated within the 3D space in order to explore new textile engineering capabilities. Using CLO3D, I am able to theorize designs and simulate how the Gi would look and move in real life. This allows for refinement of the design and making necessary adjustments before producing a physical sample. The use of digital tools also allowed for the exploration of new textile rendering capabilities, creating a more visually stunning final product.
