CLO Virtual Fashion Makes Strategic Investment in PixelPool, the Company Behind Dtail

CLO Virtual Fashion, the world leader in 3D garment simulation technology, announced a strategic investment in PixelPool, market leader in developing 3D software solutions for the apparel retail industry. This move will allow both companies to provide mutual clients a seamless end-to-end digital fashion experience, starting from the creation of virtual 3D samples to the interactive use of those samples in PixelPool’s SaaS solution, Dtail.

“PixelPool provides one of the best 3D fashion experiences through its various products such as virtual showrooms,” said Simon Kim, Chief Executive Officer of CLO Virtual Fashion, Inc. “We are very excited to partner with them to help existing and new clients digitize their processes from end to end. Providing users with a seamless digitized experience is one of CLO’s objectives as a company, and the partnership opens up a world of possibilities in continuing to make that objective a reality.”

“For PixelPool, the investment is a strategic win,” said Maarten van Dooren, Founder and CEO of PixelPool.  “The fact that CLO has selected PixelPool as the creator of the most future-proof virtual showroom validates the tremendous work we have done to create a platform indicative of the future of fashion.”

The CLO investment will go towards the continued development of Dtail. Dtail already enables fashion brands to plan, visualize and sell their collections by linking product data to 3D virtual samples and sync those assets to a realistic, customizable virtual environment which elevates the visual merchandising and B2B sales processes. The future of the platform has endless possibilities with richer 3D content and inclusion of artificial intelligence and streaming.
