sharing & funding



The project MILAN AV-JC aims to spread Zero Waste Design philosophy into the fashion industry. This could not be possible without any technical demonstration. Therefore, real size cutting plans and other technical info are shared in open source under the Creative Common Licence.

What does it mean ?

Attribution — Vous devez créditer l'Œuvre, intégrer un lien vers la licence et indiquer si des modifications ont été effectuées à l'Oeuvre. Vous devez indiquer ces informations par tous les moyens raisonnables, sans toutefois suggérer que l'Offrant vous soutient ou soutient la façon dont vous avez utilisé son Oeuvre.

Pas d’Utilisation Commerciale — Vous n'êtes pas autorisé à faire un usage commercial de cette Oeuvre, tout ou partie du matériel la composant.

Partage dans les Mêmes Conditions — Dans le cas où vous effectuez un remix, que vous transformez, ou créez à partir du matériel composant l'Oeuvre originale, vous devez diffuser l'Oeuvre modifiée dans les même conditions, c'est à dire avec la même licence avec laquelle l'Oeuvre originale a été diffusée.

Attribution — You must give appropriate credit, provide a link to the license, and indicate if changes were made. You may do so in any reasonable manner, but not in any way that suggests the licensor endorses you or your use.

NonCommercial — You may not use the material for commercial purposes

ShareAlike — If you remix, transform, or build upon the material, you must distribute your contributions under the same license as the original.

Which kind of data is shared?

(cutting plan scale 1 : 1 without any sewing info)
available for FREE

(cutting plan scale 1 : 1
+ sewing info)
available with a Tipeee contribution

(virtual prototypes ready to be used in Clo Virtual Fashion 3D) available with a tipeee contribution 



                 Sustainable design innovation is the core of the project and it is obviously passion driven. However as you may imagine, this opensource documentation process is time-investing. 
A Tipeee page has therefore been created so you can support the initiative - if you find it meaningful and important for the future.
This way, you give it a chance to evolve and get adopted by your favorite brands in the coming years. 

Thanks to your support, MILAN AV-JC will: 

- Carry on the research and keep prototyping new zero waste specimen collections to be showcased.
- Developp a range of sizes (for the moment only size 38 is available)
- Improve quality and frequency of digital pattern sharing.
- Finance the daily use of 3D prototyping softwares.
- Organize workshops/ conferences in fashion schools and have an effect on future education programs.

your rewards ? 


To thank you for your support, two different rewards are available:


monthly lottery

At the end of each month, a random draw is organized among people who support the project. As a reward, a zero waste product (designed and sewn by MILAN AV-JC) is given to the luckiest one ! Those textile products are made in Bordeaux (France) in very limited series (4 items max).

By increasing your contribution, you are also multiplying your chances to win !
2€ = your name will be added two times into the lottery box.
10€ = your name will be added ten times
 into the lottery box.
50€ = your name will be added fifty times
 into the lottery box. ...etc

If you support the project monthly, your name will be added at each random draw.


get access to the collection cad files

If your contribution gets to 10€, you get a privileged access to the detailed CAD files (cutting plans, under ai, svg, dxf formats + all technical info required to cut and sew garments such as pieces numbers, seam values, measures...etc)

If your contribution gets to 20€ you get a privileged access to the 3D simulation files, ready to be used and modified in Clo Virtual Fashion 3D.

NB: A shared folder path will be sent to you by email once your contribution will be valid. Each week, (until december 12th) new patterns will be released (see download calendar below)
