Basic Virtual Prototyping in Fashion

Online Short Course Fashion Business Apparel Design and Product Development Industrial Engineering, Quality & Production

In today’s fashion industry, speed to market is the critical success factor for any retailer. Changes in designs have to be quick and accurate, and physical sampling can be costly and time consuming. The quality of pattern draft is only decided when the sample is made up. Virtual fit allows user to test the quality of the draft without incurring real cost in terms of fabrics, accessories and sewing. Virtual Fit Software is an integrated sampling and designing application set to reduce the lead time of the product development cycle through 3D visualisation of garment and fabric details. This course aims to give a brief introduction on Virtual Fit Software with a good understanding of how it can help to ease work and increase the productivity of sampling.
