Easily Try Out Different Colors and Prints In Your Fashion Design Sketches

Digital Fashion Pro Fashion Design Software System lets you easily try out different colors and prints in your fashion design sketches. This is a great feature because it allows you to see your design in different colorways, with different artwork and prints, logo placement etc. so that you can choose the best version of your designs to offer your customers. Your team can also vote on which colors they like best. Doing this type of analysis using hand sketches would take more time and be a little more challenging. Creating these type of visuals with fashion design software makes the process more fun, detailed and efficient. Let’s look at a dress design created with Digital Fashion Pro.
