3D technology has emerged to be a vital investment among Hong Kong fashion companies. While the application in virtual prototyping is becoming common in the industry, the 3D fashion design software may work with other digital tools in bringing the use of 3D technology a way forward into the supply chain in areas like sales and marketing.

Digital marketing is the promotion of goods and services in the form of digital content through digital channels like social media and websites. The recent development of 3D CADs and VR tools provides a good means to create realistic virtual images with interesting visual effects which can help to push the concept out to the market effectively.

This course is for students who have got knowledge in 3D fashion CAD and would like to make use of the 3D garment assets for sales and marketing. (This is not a 3D Fashion CAD course)
