ICT, CAD and CAM are rapidly changing the textile design industry. With access to one of the world's top fashion design houses, the program shows how technology is used at every stage of the design and production planning process. Initial design proposals are researched, generated, developed, modelled, communicated and presented using ICT and CAD. CAD/CAM is then used to plan, enhance accuracy and efficiency of production and assure aesthetic quality from grading and costing the garment for manufacture to producing the spec sheet, lay plan and final sample. The program also looks at the very latest technological development to hit the textile fashion industry - the 3D body scanner. Retailers and catalogue companies explain how the new data about body sizes enables more accurate size chart development and 3D pattern generation.
