ICT in Textiles: Design, Practice and Process

Media: DVD
DUR: 30 mins
Product Code: ICTTEX
Price: £40.00

This resource looks at the impact of new technology on the global fashion and textile industry. A top fashion design house shows how ICT, CAD and CAM has revolutionised the way they communicate with their global manufacturing partners – from speeding up the design process to improving accuracy and efficiency of production – enabling them to turn designs around from initial idea through to shop floor in a matter of weeks. It also shows how 3D body scanners enable retailers and catalogue companies to create more accurate size charts and 3D patterns.
