INDIA: First digital fashion innovation lab opens
India's Institute of Apparel Management (IAM) has opened a new 'Fashion Innovation Lab' lab to train students and apparel industry professionals how to work digitally at every stage of the apparel production process from concept to Consumer.
Fitted with state-of-the-art software by Tukatech, this innovative environment is the first of a new breed of learning centre.
Students will cover story-boarding, pattern engineering, marker making and virtual prototyping, creating apparel collections that can be displayed as a runway show during final exams.
"India has a great pool of designers with international flair for fashion and hundreds of fashion schools teach with CAD systems, but IAM is the first to offer a 100% digital lab from concept to consumer," Tukatech CEO Ram Sareen explained.
"The process will give users quick ideas, instant feedback of their fit and look, thus making IAM students far more competitive."
