Recognizing Dassault Systemes’ leading market position in the fashion industry, our host, Government of Quebec in Paris, invited us to attend a press conference on the 13th edition of the Festival Mode et Design in Montreal to be held July 31st to August 3rd.  Every year a few blocks in downtown Montreal for this 4-day fashion event. Over 500,000 visitors walk the streets and attend the many shows to discover Quebec’s best fashion styles.  This year’s honorary president is the multi-talented Jean Charles de Castelbajac whom I had the pleasure to meet.  Jean-Charles de Castelbajac will give a series of events: “Fantomes”, an artistic performance that mixes electro music and fashion, a conference at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, urban art and more.

A good reason to visit Montreal this summer!

And here are the wonderful people making it all happen: Sensation Mode

As a designer, I’m always looking for new ways to improve my creative process, in order to fit my design intent from the first sketch to the final prototype.

This year, I had the opportunity to work with CATIA for Creative Designers in order to give life to my 3D Printed Jewelry Project which draws its inspiration from nature.

I’d like to share with you the experience I had on this project, through some tips which may help you increase your own creativity!

If you liked the presentation, feel free to share it! :-)

First Solar-Powered Flight Across America Lands in New York

Giving people the power to imagine sustainable innovations is the core purpose behind Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, and nothing embodies that spirit more than Solar Impulse.  New York City was the final stop in the solar plane’s cross-country tour, and if you are lucky enough to be in the area this weekend, you can see the airplane for yourself on Sunday (July 14) at John F. Kennedy Airport! Just sign up here: http://solarimpulseatnyconsunday.eventbrite.com/

Bertrand Piccard and André Borschberg spent the last decade envisioning and building the solar powered airplane that could fly long distances, and last weekend it completed one of its first major tests.  The team landed at JFK after a two month journey that started in San Francisco, and included stops in Phoenix, Dallas, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Washington, D.C.

Making the Solar Impulse plane was no small feat – it includes nearly 12,000 silicon solar cells and 880 pounds of batteries to store electricity that powers four electric motors.  Being an experimental plane also made it subject to Federal Aviation Administration regulations that stipulate it must take off in the early morning hours, before other air traffic.  As a result, the solar-powered aircraft flew day and night to complete its historic journey.

This is truly a milestone in the aerospace industry and a precursor to what the future holds for us all – clean and sustainable aircraft.  Dassault Systèmes is proud to be a specialty partner in the endeavor to make it a reality!

What’s next for the Solar Impulse team?  They’re taking the lessons learned from their cross country journey and planning an around-the-world flight for 2015.
