Advances in digital technology are transforming the way we make fashion. “Digital Couture Bootcamp” is a beginner training program for students, graduates, makers and practitioners who want to master the digital skills and technology for creating custom/bespoke fashion.

What is custom/bespoke fashion? A bespoke garment is custom-made from scratch to the design specification and uniquely fitted to your body measurement and shape. We use the term “custom/bespoke fashion” for referring to items that are designed and made for individual body.

You will learn the fundamental skills for creating custom/bespoke garments based on parametric design principles using 2D and 3D fashion technology. Parametric design in this case refers to how we use computer techniques to translate data such as body measurements into garments made to fit the individual.

The Bootcamp is organised as a series of weekly workshops in a capacity of 2 participants for 6 weeks (1 x 3hrs/week). The Bootcamp activities will also help you to incorporate these skills into your creative work.

  • Applying parametric approach to garment design

  • How to set up the 2D - 3D project workflow
