    Regarding textile design software specifically;

    Other somewhat pricey options with great flexibility, if you spend the
    time learning programming, are Mathematica and a step down is
    a program called Artlandia. Both programs are useful for textile design
    and are math based.

    For just a Photoshop plug-in I found Xaos' Terrazzo helpful for repeats.

    Anybody here has tried Lectra program?? I also use autocad for technical drawings and it works fine once you know the basics of the program. But i'm interested in LEctra, just curious to know if it is as good as it's seems and if it's worth to pay that amount of money.

    by the way have you heard of any fashion design programs?
    i didn't know there was such thing...

    a lot of people use Adobe Illustrator --it's just a drawing/colouring/etc tool. some members here just download templates (of model bodies) to print out and then draw clothes on top
    in both cases you still have to know how to render different materials yourself.. leather, denim, fur

    More ideas in this thread:

    Sorry for resurfacing this thread ^_^ But does anyone know which software the industry prefers if one was to apply for a design position? Like is there a universal fashion software that the entire industry works with?

    ^ For sure! I'll never put them down! But you can't blame the industry for moving forward.

    This question is directed are people who work in the fashion industry or have had experience with digital fashion design.

    In your opinion, which is the best fashion design software (preferably with 3D modeling) available?

    A couple programs

    Hi there, there's the Wild Ginger pattern making software series you could try, they're pretty affordable too, and Etelestia offers a trial of their software so you can check it out for free, last time I checked. Good luck

    question

    Can I ask a question about Fashion Design Software?

    In a report about the Cristóbal Balenciaga museum on french-german network arte they recently showed a phantastic software.
    It first showed the parts of the dress and then it was put together/assembled to the dress. Here are some impressions (starts left top, then right top,..., ends right bottom):
    *Edited*

    As a fashion-outsider can I ask: is this a commercial software or was it maybe just developed for the museum?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi :nm: ,

    I don't know if this software is from the museum but it reminds me a lot of the lectra modaris. Here's their website

    You can buy their programs but...of course, paying a lot of money for them.

    Another fashion software-related question came to my mind these days: on Franco-German TV-channel ARTE I saw a report about Christian Dior and his drawings. They animated a drawing of him, for example moved the arms (see sequence attached). Is it meanwhile possible to draw a piece of clothing on say an iPad and change, improve (or animate like here) the sketch. Which programme or application is best for that? Thanks in advance.

    I've never tried software and actually never thought of it. I want to start using it though.

    I meanwhile found a video called "iPad Pro and Apple Pencil for Fashion Design and Pattern Drafting" with an app called 'concepts' on youtube (don't know if I'm allowed to link here)

    If you're looking to transition to digital sketching then I would recommend procreate. It's the best drawing App on the iPad.
