Updated on December 23, 2017
viryabo profile image

Having less than perfect skin can affect one's self-esteem, and acne, especially, has a way of eroding confidence. Has acne changed you?

Clothing design software is an awesome fashion design program that is versatile functional, and so much fun to use, and if you aspire to become a fashion designer but worried about your inability to sketch your fashion ideas on paper, there are design programs, such as these available on-line for you to buy.

Regardless of whether you are a beginner trying to realize your fashion dreams, a fashion enthusiast, a fashion design teacher, or a professional fashion designer, using CAD design software will help accomplish design objectives without the need for any dressmaking or sketching skills.

Users can produce clothing designs of whatever they may dream up. They can transform their creations into reality with a fashion designing software, using it to learn how to expand creative dimensions, whilst developing great skills and potentials.

Most clothing design programs are so much fun to use, easy to navigate (it's interface) with a delivery of professional fashion illustrations that are above and beyond the fashion industry standards.

Fashion Design Software's Cutting Edge Technology

Fashion design software programs possess various components that work together perfectly, helping fashion designers expand their creativity and design incredibly realistic fashion design illustrations and presentations that convey a designer’s true fashion vision.

You can design cutting edge designs and concepts that truly represent your fashion vision, without constraints and limitations. You can start getting creative by getting technical, designing your own exciting fashion collections immediately you download the software.

You will start to enjoy using its varied components, such as art and graphics program, templates, digital fabrics, techniques, and other learning tools.

Must-Have Design Software

If you are computer savvy, you will love this computer aided apparel design software which has become increasingly popular in the fashion industry as in many other design industries. It is a 'must have' for any, and every fashion designer.

Having and using a clothing design software is important in that it allows designers to view their clothing designs on virtual models. This affords them the ability to do minor or major adjustment to the:

  • Colour
  • Shape
  • Style
  • Era
  • Tailored cut

Fashion Illustrations, a Click of a Mouse Away

All these can be done at the click of a button, without the time and expense required to build, rebuild and 're-rebuild' out a new prototype, whilst always having to discard the designs that don't work.

This old-fashioned process can become time-consuming and costly, and designers have been known to give up in exasperation after a series of failed designs.

Not anymore, that is if you have clothing design software.

Career Fashion Designers

The US Department of Labour predicts a measly 5% increase in employment for fashion designers from 2006 to 2016.

Most jobs will be found in design firms, and those making mass produced clothing that appeals to most consumers.

Designs from these designers will be sold to department stores and retail chain stores.

And because the CAD clothing design software saves time and money, designers who become proficient in its use will get the jobs faster.

This is because virtually all these fashion design software programs get used in fashion design firms.

CAD Basic Course

Fashion design CAD programs have become a basic course at most fashion schools of repute.

So, if you are in the process of enrolling into a fashion design school anytime soon, why not have an edge over the other new beginners by starting to use clothing design software. If you haven't learned it yet, now is the time to learn how to use an apparel design software program.

It is possible to create a clothing design line virtually and this will be beneficial in a number of ways when you become good at using this design software.

You can work:

  • Full-time for fashion companies
  • As an in-house designer that owns the fashion designs
  • Alone by working for yourself
  • As part of an apparel design team
  • As a Freelance fashion designer
  • As a seller of unique designs to fashion houses, directly to shops, or to clothing manufacturers.

Best of all, as a fashion designer with good experience using clothing design software, you can set up your own label, and your designs can be marketed to them.

Welcome to the 21st century. Charles Frederick Worth, who in the 19th century was the first fashion designer to have his label sewn into the garments that he painstakingly created, would be smiling at how the clothing design software can help churn out creative fashion ideas in minutes, and not in weeks as was the case way back then.

      Great hub, these programs are all great. I've tried most of them and they work. Sometimes the color palettes are limited but that can easily be solved by designing your own swatches in a program like Photoshop. One word of warning though, when you attend school for fashion design, you will be expected to spend at least a year learning how to properly draw fashion illustrations by hand. They didn't start etting me use Vector, graphics, and CAD until my junior year.
