DIPLOMA IN FASHION CAD
The CAD for Fashion Design — Art Certificate program was developed to meet the fashion industry's need for trained talent with advanced Fashion Design computer skills.
The program offers students the opportunity to upgrade their digital fashion design skills to industry standards. The purpose of the program is to enable designers to create and produce various fashion design presentation products, such as digital trend and concept boards, textile color developments, and digital spec sheets for a portfolio. Students entering this program must have basic fashion drawing skills to succeed.
Computer-aided design or “CAD” is fast becoming the future of sketching in the fashion industry.
A growing number of fashion designers translate hand sketches to the computer, which allows designers to view designs of clothing on virtual models and in various colors and shapes. This saves time by requiring fewer adjustments of prototypes and samples later.
Because CAD is becoming more popular in the fashion industry, aspiring designers with CAD experience will likely have more opportunities than designers without it.
