Workshop aims

The workshop aims to show how digital technologies help in accelerating the sample making process. It brings to the participants an experience of producing a real 3D fashion sample from a 2D sketch in a very short period of time.

This workshop showcases the interplay among different technologies which include the use of virtual 3D software, 2D pattern making software and hardware, body scanner as well as the traditional garment making facilities. It may also cover the application of fabric analyser or digital printer wherever possible.

The workshop is composed of three parts:

  • Demonstration of the use of digital technologies
  • Practical session of creating virtual fashion sample
  • Practical session of making real fashion sample
