The rising request for digital skills in fashion industry is the logical consequence of the technical enrollment of programms. 

Innovative design processes and lean production demand digital data, flexible communication and global teamwork. The connection of workplaces and the data exchange are amongst many other reasons for the need of digital competences achieved during education. 

Because of Covid-19 the fashion industry was forced to find new methods of product presentation overnight.

3D-visualization was discovered as a useful tool, that supports the process from garment development to productplacement.

The programme Clo3D offers to link design, patternconstruction, "flat sketching", fashion drawing, fitting, styling and designing accessories as much as material planning.
