Introducing our free Moodboard for Fashion Tool

Our Fashion Moodboard Tool is free to use and helps teams design together digitally, while they can’t be together physically.

The Moodboard for fashion is synonymous with the start of the design development process. For too long, it has been an incredibly valuable exercise that is done in a studio, and the rich insight into the thinking behind the design is not captured for the garment manufacturer to understand. With the release of this new tool from SupplyCompass, designers can capture their ideas and attach them to their tech packs for their manufacturers to see during the RfQ and Costing process.

With digital communication tools gaining increasing use as the world adapts to working from home in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, there emerges a need for tools catering to design teams to help them ideate and communicate effectively.

Designed for both fashion brands with global teams and factories to collaborate together, this moodboard tool is designed to make collecting and collating inspiration easy and simple, no matter where you live. Use the tool to add ideas, share with your team members and factories, annotate images with comments from your team and organize them effortlessly on the cloud where they all live, so you will never lose them.

In this unusual time where teams are having to work from home, we realized fashion brands were using all sorts of collaboration tools and video conferencing software for some parts of the business, but not tools specifically designed for the unique needs of fashion brands.

Add ideas

Upload photos, add a name and description and categorise as material, colour, fit, or component inspiration. This makes it easy to drop inspiration from your Moodboards, directly into your tech packs when you start designing your collection. You can upload images and annotate, or use the colour picker to build a colour palette.

Create Moodboards, together

Never again lose track of where your saved inspiration for next season’s collection. With the Moodboard tool, save and share ideas instantly and easily with your team. Spending time searching through folders on your desktop, scrolling through your Instagram ‘saved’ feed, or searching through a pile of magazine cutouts, is a thing of the past. Easily collaborate on future collections, wherever you are.
