“As the pace of technological innovation accelerates and integration of CSR into our business strategies becomes essential, we and our customers need more than ever to identify and decipher – or even anticipate – current and future changes. We need a variety of perspectives on the underlying trends that are impacting our activities and our value creation models. The creation of the Lectra Observatory reflects our desire to contribute to this very necessary collective reflection,” she says.

The Lectra Observatory’s work will focus as a priority on technological and industrial innovations, as well as on the economic, social and environmental transformation of the fashion, furniture and automotive markets. The work will be done in interaction with external experts, prioritizing an international approach. It will be made available free of charge to everyone, to encourage discussion and the emergence of new collaboration opportunities.

Publication of a first white paper on the impact of Industry 4.0

The first white paper of the Lectra Observatory is already available online. Entitled The rise of Industry 4.0 boosts manufacturing efficiency, it is the result of several months of work and discussions with different experts. In it, the companies Porsche Consulting, Tesca, Leisure Creations and Valerius Texteis share their vision of the major changes enabled by Industry 4.0 in their sectors.

Their viewpoints are complemented by those of a number of European and American experts: Dorothée Kohler and Jean-Daniel Weisz of French consultancy firm Kohler Consulting & Coaching; Marco Taisch, Professor at the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano (PoliMi) and President of the MADE in Italy Industry 4.0 skills center, and the American Jake Hall, creator of video podcast The Manufacturing Millennial.

“We’re delighted to present the first publication by our Observatory with this white paper. It provides a survey of the adoption of Industry 4.0 across the world and emphasizes its ability to connect all stakeholders in the product value chain, while also looking at the challenges still to be met by companies to optimize the opportunities opened up by the 4th great industrial revolution,” explains Maria Modroño.

迪尚杯•第十五届中国新生代设计大奖揭晓 呈现时尚工装的新打开方式

在“时尚、科技、绿色”成为时尚产业新标签的今天,职业工装作为劳动者的身份符号与防护装备,也在随着社会的进步优化迭代。在科技与人文,发展与环保这样的多元背景下,作为后千禧一代的设计师,该如何设计兼具时尚颜值和科技内涵的新工装?又该如何通过设计作品传达自己对行业的深刻理解? 9月24日下午19点00分,迪尚杯•第十五届中国新生代设计大奖终评暨颁奖典礼在威海国际展览中心C馆正式拉开帷幕。 迪尚集团有限公司朱立华董事长致欢迎词 威海高新区党工委书记、管委会主任梅延良书记致辞 本次评选由威海市人民政府指导,中国服装设计师协会与迪尚集团共同主办,以“数字赋能 最美工装”为主题,锚定航空运输、妇幼保健、城市环境及学生校服四大领域,广泛征集创意设计作品,要求参评设计师进行“沉浸式设计”,即针对各行业劳动者的工作环境、工作状态,设身处地为他们设计出实用、舒适、时尚的工装。 评选自启动以来,受到全国服装高校师生、职业工装生产企业、职业设计师与设计爱好者的广泛关注与积极参与,收到众多参赛作品。经初评遴选后,有39组作品入围终评圈。 T台上,航空运输、妇幼保健、城市环境及学生校服赛道的参赛者们围绕“数字赋能 最美工装”这一评选主题,以独具个性的时尚视角和不拘一格的创新思维诠释了现代工装理念。经他们之手打造出的工装制服已不再是永远的单色调、传统的“宽衣大袖”,取而代之的是色彩多样、式样新颖、实用舒适,设计上更多地体现出“以人为本”的关怀理念,具有强烈的时代气息。 经专业评审团的观摩、讨论和打分,最终沈慧基、沈小雅、程婕、杨贤文、笪乾随分别荣获航空运输赛道、妇幼保健赛道、城市环境赛道金奖。 中国纺织工程学会理事长伏广伟和威海市委副书记、市长 孔凡萍为获得金奖的选手颁奖 陈旭展、马海昆、洪诗怡、熊俊峰、罗琳、李超晗、闵立波、李洁涵荣获银奖。 中国服装设计师协会副主席朱少芳和威海市工信局党组书记、局长邢海波为获得银奖的选手颁奖 朱金标、徐文雯、高克龙、杨桥宜、张春颖、徐靖翊荣获铜奖。 中国服装设计师协会专职副主席谢方明和迪尚集团副总经理朱洪韬为获得铜奖的选手颁奖 叶雯、李欣彦、石金铭、程婕等36名选手荣获优秀奖。 北京服装学院党委常委 副校长 詹炳宏和山东省纺织服装行业协会副会长 王淼为获得优秀奖的选手颁奖 从这些作品中,新生代设计师丰富的创作活力和实用精神体现得淋漓尽致。 与此同时,迪尚DCCM品牌新品也在本届终评暨颁奖典礼舞台上重磅亮相。作为迪尚集团的高端品牌,DCCM品牌聚焦独立自信的职场女性,追求中西文化共融,不断探索国际时装语言的兼容并蓄,致力于在突出低调内敛、端庄优雅的同时,展现温柔迷人的女性气质。秀场上,DCCM以数帧感性细腻画面投映出品牌对于女性美的大胆诠释,通过直给的视觉语言,展现出女性摩登且魅惑的神秘吸引力,即对女性真我本色的全新定义。 值得一提的是,在迪尚杯·第15届中国新生代设计大奖终评暨颁奖典礼揭晓前,威海市政府特地组织环卫、园林、医护等行业的从业人员和中学生拍摄、展示部分参赛设计作品,参与颁奖典礼走秀的校服模特也都是普通的在校学生,向社会传达出“时尚之美,存于日常,常人之美,与城市相得益彰”的职业工装设计新观念。同时,也展现出每一位普通劳动者们的高光时刻,任何努力的普通人,都值得被放大、被看见、被认可。 迪尚杯·第十五届中国新生代设计大奖评选的前身是“迪尚”中国时装设计大赛成果奖评选,已经成功举办了14届。“迪尚杯”为中国服装产业输送了大量优秀的服装设计人才,为推动服装行业由“中国制造”向“中国创造”、“中国品牌”转型发展做出了重要贡献。 本次“迪尚杯”继续以挖掘、培养具备创新能力的工装设计人才为目标,鼓励新生代设计师运用创新性与实用性兼备的创想,开拓职业工装制服设计的崭新未来。未来,迪尚集团与中国服装设计师协会将继续展开对于优秀选手的助推和作品的拓展转化,打造供应链对接设计、创新设计的链接能力,为中国时尚开启产业跃迁的全新征程。
