Fabric Design Trade Show

Students in Ashley Kubley’s FASH3020 Computer Aided Design for Fashion took part in a mini-trade show on April 19th, 2019 in the Robert A. Deshon and Karl J. Schlachter Library of DAAP. Representatives from Abercrombie & Fitch and Lectra Technologies were present to judge student work.

These students used the new Fashion Technology Center Lab resources (digital fabric printing and embroidery) and the Rapid Prototyping Center (laser cutting, etching, 3d printing) to complete their fabric samples, as well as, kaledo software. For those interested, there are more photos of work on Instagram @ #daapfashioncad

A reception in the library was enjoyed by all afterward.
