Learn how to transform your design illustrations into a three-dimensional fashion collection through Introduction to 3D Clothing Visualization, a short online certificate course that will run for four Saturdays starting May 21.
Ideal for aspiring designers as well as e-commerce business owners, the course champions sustainable design and fashion in the digital landscape.
The lectures are aided by the simulation technologies of CLO, one of the most advanced, intuitive, and cohesive 3D garment design software used by small and big names in the fashion industry.
The program will walk the students through the basic tools of the software and will train them on how to navigate through its diverse functions.
They will be guided through the process of creating their very own 3D clothing patterns from scratch, including stitching and puckering the details, manipulating the shapes, and drafting and editing these patterns. Then, they will apply and test their finished works on the application’s 3D avatar.
By the end of the course, the participants will be able to produce and render their very own 3D garments, which they can use as visuals for look books and social media.
The Introduction to 3D Clothing Visualization is offered by the School of Professional and Continuing Education (SPaCE) of the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.
