DL – Design Line opts for customized clothing mass production solution by Human Solutions

Human Solutions adds manufacturer of wedding and cocktail dresses to list of RETAILOR Manufacturer users: Individual ladies' collection by DL – Design Line now represented at Fashion House Wöhrl - as of today

Kaiserslautern, 28th September 2006 - The Human Solutions Company of Kaiserslautern, Germany, has succeeded in winning over yet another apparel manufacturer to the ranks of the RETAILOR users - DL – Design Line of Memmelsdorf. DL – Design Line offers three ladies' collections - Business, Blouse and Event Collections and works solely with 3D scan measurement data.

Designer Ursula Joanna Willmann, owner and Managing Director of DL – Design Line commented: “Ever since I founded my own studio more than twenty years ago, it has always been my desire to fulfill my customers' individual apparel wishes. The trade solution by Human Solutions now enables us to offer our customers even more than in the past - the 3D body scanner acquires all the necessary data in just a few seconds, the sales and guidance discussion is computer-supported and the ordering procedure is processed online - so our collections are now also characterized by a superlative price-performance ratio. The finished apparel is also delivered so quickly that even the more impatient customers are now ordering their dream dresses from us.”

Effective immediately, the tailored apparel collections by DL – Design Line will now also be sold by the fashion chain Wöhrl. In the company flagship store in Nuremberg, Wöhrl has been using the 3D body scanner since 2004 and is linked online via RETAILOR with the customized clothing manufacturers Odermark and Oktavia. With DL – Design Line, Wöhrl is now offering so-called Event Fashion for ladies for the first time - and in the autumn of this year, the new Business and Blouse Collections from DL – Design Line will also be added to the range on offer.

Ladies' customized collections from DL – Design Line

DL – Design Line offers three unusual ladies' customized collections. The exclusive Business Collection ranges from trouser suits to tailored costumes and sheath dresses. As a supplement to these, the customer can choose from the comprehensive range of materials on offer in the DL Blouse Collection to complete her outfit. In the DL Event Collection there are appropriate variations for every occasion. The collection offers many fabrics and styles for a large selection of models including festive trouser suits, LBD or little black dresses, outfits for civil registry office marriage ceremonies, voluminous wedding dresses and ball gowns. The DL Ladies' Customized Collections use only 3D scan measurement data.

With the expansion of the collections, DL – Design Line is offering for the first time a complete solution for ladies' customized clothing from one source: Business, Blouses and Event Fashion. In May of 2006, DL – Design Line was awarded the "Seitensprünge" design prize in recognition of the company's work. This prize rewards young, innovative companies for special performance in craftsmanship.

From the 7th until the 10th of September 2006, DL – Design Line and Wöhrl City Nürnberg presented the latest 3D Body Scanner by Human Solutions at the Federal Congress of Junior Economists in Bamberg. With fabrics, PC programs and trend models, individual customized clothing manufacture for ladies and men was explained to interested Congress participants.

Wöhrl and DL – Design Line provide the outfits for the national and international appearances of the current Miss Germany, Daniela Domröse. Besides a classic trouser suit with matching blouse for official appearances, DL – Design Line also creates the national costume and the show outfits for Ms. Domröse's appearances in the Miss Europe and Miss Universe competitions.

RETAILOR - an overview

The RETAILOR portal is the only platform worldwide that directly links the retail trade with various manufacturers of ladies' and men's made-to-measure clothing. On the manufacturing side, RETAILOR MANUFACTURER is used, while retailers have a version of the RETAILOR SHOP product family available to them.

In the case of the high-end model RETAILOR SHOP 3D (which DL – Design Line also recommends for fashion houses), customers are digitally measured by a three-dimensional body scanner, in a precise, efficient and contact-free procedure. During the sales talk, the program provides comprehensive support for the professional sales person and also helps the customer with his decisions – from the basic questions like which cloth or cut to details like the choice of buttons. All data is then transmitted online to the manufacturer.
