- Advanced Fashion Design and Technology
Advanced Fashion Design and Technology is the
manufacturingprocess related to fashion. It has also spawned a nationally accredited Australian vocationalcourse, offered at various TAFE SAand Universities.
It specifically refers not only to the
designprocess, but furthermore to the manufacturing, which is defined as being "advanced". It utilizes CAD, to patternmake, and design. Designs are generally in womenswear, but it is also available in specialty areas such as menswear, childrenswear, and bridal. Generally, it requires background knowledge in:
*Fabric and fibre characteristics
*Fashion trends and forecasting;
*Using electronic fashion design tools;
*Interacting/networking with the fashion design industry
As a result of being a
manufacturing-intensive process, it is generally also outsourcedto cheaper alterantives such as China.
