Utilizing OpenAI’s cutting-edge AI system, DALL·E, CALA has created new artificial intelligence tools that will enable users to produce novel design concepts from written descriptions or uploaded reference images. This is a pioneering development for the fashion industry and CALA is among the first organizations to incorporate the DALL·E API text-to-image platform for a specific business purpose.
Redefining The Fashion Design Industry
CALA is revolutionizing the design process, unlocking unimagined potential with an all-in-one digital platform – from the spark of an idea to the delivery of the final product. It provides unprecedented flexibility to any size brand – from the world’s largest retailers to independent designers – enabling them to bring their vision to life. And it’s only getting better with AI capabilities to free up users to create with unlimited inspiration. CALA is redefining the design industry.
How Does Cala AI Work
CALA AI is a platform designed to help fashion companies quickly and easily create new product designs. It works by leveraging natural language processing to generate example product designs based on user input.
A user will first select from one of the dozens of product templates available. For example, they could select a blouse template and then enter terms like “dark”, “delicate”, and “velvet” into the adjectives section, while adding the phrase “sewn logo patches” to the trims and features section. CALA will then use these natural language prompts to generate six example product designs.
The user can then cycle through the designs, selecting the one that most closely matches the aesthetic they are trying to achieve. Once a design has been selected, it can be further modified within the platform, either by the user or through collaboration with other team members. When the design is complete, production on the item can be seamlessly started.
Benefits of Using CALA AI
CALA AI makes the design process much faster and easier, allowing fashion companies to quickly bring their ideas to life.
Brands can utilize their own existing designs to create a harmonious range of items. For instance, a jacket design can be uploaded and DALL·E will generate six images with slight variations of the original. This is beneficial to brands looking to develop a unified collection based on a specific item.
The DALL·E API offers immense potential for innovative applications. The CALA AI team has been able to use it to generate 3D product renderings for their suite of templates.
CALA is strengthening its mission to digitally revolutionize the fashion industry through the recent launches of its mobile app and 3D prototyping capabilities. The mobile app will enable users to collaborate with their global supply chain on the product creation process from the initial design to the finished product – all on a mobile device. 3D prototyping capabilities have been added to the process to further streamline the design process. This combination of features is a game changer for the industry and will undoubtedly lead to greater efficiencies and cost savings.
