Simulating the complex fashion garments of haute couture can only be reached through an optimal combination of modeling techniques and numerical methods that combines high computation efficiency with the versatility required for simulating intricate garment designs. Here we describe optimal choices illustrated by their integration into a design and simulation tool that allow interactive prototyping of garments along drape motion and comfortability tests on animated postures. These techniques have been successfully used to bring haute couture garments from early draping of fashion designers, to be simulated and visualized in the virtual world.
