During design process in clothing production, states of wrinkles and folds formed on dress according to human posture and movements are an important design element. However envisaging the wrinkles and folds is not easy because fabric states strongly depend on mechanical properties of a fabric. In this paper, a fabric model taking into account slipping of the warp and the weft at the contact point of them is proposed and a fabric simulation system using this model is developed. In addition, the effectiveness of the simulation system based on the proposed model is confirmed by using a 0-<p function defined from the fabric state obtained in the fabric simulation.
