Fashion Designing

Fashion Designing earlier considered as a hobby has currently evolved into a technological enterprise. The fashion industry today covers a wide field in interior design, concept management, quality control, textile designing, fashion merchandising, fashion accessory design, printing and much more. While the tasks are specialized in large undertakings, it could be a sole enterprise of an individual. Naphibanroi of Meghalaya became the Youngest Designer to receive the Young Designer Award at a Fashion show put up by NIFT (National Institute of Fashion Technology). Institutes of Fashion Design have mushroomed all over especially in cities.

Fashion Design Software

In keeping with the modern age, Fashion Design Software technology has been evolved, Several institutions of fashion design make use of concepts that are prepared through computer software. Some of the software used are (CAD) computer-aided and highly modernized. Fashion Design Software is widely used by professionals in the industry which is racing ahead to meet not just local but also global competition.

Due to the rapid movements of fashion seasons, software that caters to changing seasons and fashions are on the anvil. As every design conceived has a maximum life of two months i.e. one season, hence opportunities galore await fashion designer's to prove their worth and maximize the greatest benefit in pampering the whims and tastes of customers.

Fashion Design software modules

Designs for the fashion industry can be created at a greater pace and much more accuracy than manual designs. One such series of fashion design software modules among many others is the Clicdesign which is tailored to meet specific functions such as weaves, color, repeats and drapery as Adobe Photoshop plugins. Specific software for pattern setting which includes pattern design, grading, drafting as well as marker layout besides a CAD drafting system that is entirely featured can be downloaded from the internet. Several companies dealing with fashion design software permit the free download of software.

Fashion Designer games

Fashion Designer games are flooding the market creating a new culture and dress sense among the smaller age groups. Commercially lucrative these games allure even infants as they begin to recognize their own identity, these games create an illusion for children preparing them to face the tinsel world of models, film stars like Barbie. Some of the games 'Tinie me' aim at confusing the child's identity with that of the doll. All the same these are great fun time games for children who have access to styles, clothing and jewellery as well as assorted hair dos from all over the world.
