How to Introduce & Teach Digital Fashion Pro Design Method At Your School:
Digital Fashion Pro can be implemented into your school’s fashion design or art program. We have seen Digital Fashion Pro brought into various schools on our client list by IT teachers, fashion related teachers, art teachers, and home economics teachers. Here is the basic from purchase to implementation process works:
1. We do not offer site licenses. Each computer would need it’s own copy of Digital Fashion Pro and components.
2. The training portion of Digital Fashion Pro does not automatically install on the computer. The CD must be present in the computer to watch how to work the system. What we recommend is that the teacher is the only one with access to the learning tools of Digital Fashion Pro. Therefore, the teacher will be able to teach the Digital Fashion Pro method to the class while at the same time incorporating traditional design methods & curriculum into the teachings to help students excel even more.
3. Digital Fashion Pro will be perfect to implement into your school’s fashion design or art curriculum because with Digital Fashion Pro – students still have to do traditional design work and bring fourth their creative skills. Digital Fashion Pro makes the starting point easy by starting off a template and fabrics but the rest of the process of putting designs together is just like traditional fashion design. The program is a true art program and not a click this and that together kind of program. Students still have to exhibit design skills to create. The beauty is Digital Fashion Pro will help students expound on their creativity. The system also prepares them for our digital world of today and tomorrow. Possible lessons could even include students working together in teams to build teamwork skills on various projects.
We make it easy to make a seamless integration of Digital Fashion Pro into your overall fashion design or art structure. The other option at your choice is to make the learning tools available to the students but still let the teacher expand on the tools. It’s totally up to your institution how you go about implementation. We would love to add your academic institution to our growing list of academic clients from all over the world! With Digital Fashion Pro – Go Cutting Edge Digital and deliver industry approved fashion sketches. You can also add our How to start a clothing line course to your fashion curriculum to teach students how to start their own clothing business after school. The Course can be taught and we sure your students will find it very valuable.
Teachers can utilize Digital Fashion Pro to effectively teach fashion design in the following ways:
- Visualize Design Concepts: Digital Fashion Pro allows teachers to visually demonstrate design concepts to students. Teachers can use the software to create fashion illustrations, showcase different design elements, and illustrate how various garments are constructed. This helps students better understand and visualize the design process.
- Hands-On Design Projects: Teachers can assign design projects to students using Digital Fashion Pro. Students can use the software to create their own fashion designs, experiment with colors, patterns, and textures, and bring their ideas to life digitally. This hands-on approach enhances student engagement and creativity.
- Virtual Fashion Design Studio: Digital Fashion Pro can serve as a virtual fashion design studio in the classroom. Students can utilize the software to sketch, create, and refine their designs. Teachers can provide guidance, feedback, and critiques on student work directly within the software, fostering a collaborative and interactive learning environment.
- Design Analysis and Critiques: Teachers can use Digital Fashion Pro to analyze and critique student designs. They can review the design elements, proportions, color schemes, and overall aesthetics of the student’s work. This allows for constructive feedback and encourages students to refine their designs based on the teacher’s input.
- Portfolio Development: Digital Fashion Pro enables students to create a digital portfolio of their fashion designs. Teachers can guide students in compiling their best work, organizing their designs, and preparing them for presentations or college applications. This helps students showcase their skills and creativity to potential employers or institutions.
- Industry-Relevant Skills: By incorporating Digital Fashion Pro into the curriculum, teachers can equip students with industry-relevant skills. Students gain experience in using fashion design software, which is widely used in the industry. This prepares them for future careers in fashion design and related fields.
- Collaborative Projects: Digital Fashion Pro allows students to collaborate on design projects. Teachers can assign group projects where students work together to design and develop cohesive fashion collections. The software enables real-time collaboration and sharing of designs among team members.
By incorporating Digital Fashion Pro into fashion design courses, teachers can enhance the learning experience, provide practical design tools, and prepare students for the realities of the fashion industry. It fosters creativity, technical skills, and a deeper understanding of the design process.
North Iowa Area Community College Quote – On Digital Fashion Pro
“The software has been a big hit and we continue to use it with girls groups to introduce them to technology in a fun way. I work with the Girl Scouts, 4-H groups, Consumer Science classes in the schools, and this summer a teen reading program at a local library that is focusing on Creativity. It really has been a big success.
We recently just had our annual event called Girls Gone Tech Day. We had 2 groups with over 60 middle school girls in one group and over 40 in the high school girl group for these events. We had them in on two separate days. During this event as well as during our regular events throughout the year we let the girls work with the software, and have them engage in activities where they start their own mock clothing lines. We also have it where young women from the college teach the software to the girls when they come in for the programs as well.
Thank you for all of your help with getting the software available for our use. It really has worked out very well.
Mary Mosiman – IT Program Leader, North Iowa Area Community College”
Here is what a Fashion Academy Department Head stated from IADT:
“Arrington and Harper have created a real-world manual to starting a fashion business for any apparel designer. The Official Step-by-Step Guide to Starting a Clothing Line is a comprehensive handbook for fashion entrepreneurs, and having the inside track from two successful designers who started from the ground floor is absolutely inspiring!”
–Julie P. Fashion Design Chair, International Academy of Design and Technology — MI.
