Fashion design in the real-world requires much ado to go from paper to Prête-a-porte. In the virtual world, designers shed the sewing and strut their stuff with Adobe Photoshop and Reallusion iClone. Students enrolled in the Textile Design course at the Heaton Manor School in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK are first exposed to fashion design by creating their CloneCloth fashions conceptualized by painting and image editing inside Photoshop. The students then fit their looks using iClone’s CloneCloth character texture patterns before sending their virtual fashion line down the 3D real-time runway. Creating the fashion design based on iClone’s CloneCloth characters give students a number of model and clothing style forms to choose from that best fits the vision for each look in their virtual fashion line. Students express their eye for fashion while learning image editing and texture creation with Photoshop and are able to quickly see their fashions come to life with 3D animation using the accessible features of iClone.
