COMPUTERIZED FASHION DESIGN
Duration : 1 Years
Fashion design is the applied art dedicated to the design of clothing and lifestyle accessories created within the cultural and social influences of a specific time. This includes all designs worn to create a statement about the individual or group of individuals. Fashion designers don’t just design clothes, they often predict and create trends and market designs. This process begins with drawing sketches by hand or on a computer, selecting the fabrics and colours and trying out ideas by pinning them onto a dummy.
Fashion Design of Domus Academy points out creativity, productive capacity and entrepreneurial skills, fostering opportunities for innovation and positioning in the market, but most of all by making its students become protagonists of change in the constant evolution of Fashion. The fashion field is not simply the mere construction of a garment or of a set of garments. The new professional figures facing the project must be more and more able to generate and manage proposals of worlds, becoming managers and art directors at the same time: an interdisciplinary and versatile figure, able to guide and coordinate the production, the communication and the distribution. Over the decades computers and fashion have developed gradually, changed with time, taste and trend. But nobody knew that a time will come when both these fields will complement each other so well. Today fashion design has reached new heights by computer aided methods of design. As a result of which, computer industry has got its new customer.
Computer technology is making waves in the fashion design zone. From determining textile weaves to sizing designs; computers are a vital component of the fashion industry.New software programs continue to replace old manual skills. Going by the wayside are "old fashioned" flat pattern construction, pencil sketching and traditional math-based pattern sizing. Those who lag in math and falter at sketching can now breathe a little easier.
