The Master in Digital Design Applied to Fashion covers 3D and augmented reality, creating fully digital immersive worlds. Today's technology tools offer a variety of possibilities that the design world is making use of in order to create new ways to communicate.
The fashion world is not far behind in the unstoppable digital transformation that society is undergoing. Digital clothing and virtual models and runways open a universe of creative possibilities for experimentation with consumers.
By incorporating technology, the fashion world has undergone a paradigm shift over recent years which opens new doors for designers that allow them to experiment, visualise and create new worlds, making them become reality, differentiating their product, but also the experience offered to customers.
When the physical gives way and a transition to digital begins, you are able to innovate at levels you could not in real life. Fashion designers and digital creators are now converging in digital development, 3D modelling and creating experiences that blur the boundaries between the physical and the virtual.
Digital fashion design
- CLO 3D. 3D software for designing garments based on interactive patterns. The garments created fit the avatar used as a model. It allows patterns to be exported for their physical production.
- Marvelous Designer. 3D garment design software with hyper-realistic movement simulation. The garments created fit the avatar used as a model. It allows granular control over the behaviour and shape of the final product.
Creation of digital materials
- Adobe Substance. Software for creating 3D materials, it has a library of preset parametric materials to work on. This software can be used to create materials both for the garments in the collection and the components of the runway environment.
Avatar design and animation
- Daz3D and Daz Studio. Daz3D is a 3D media library specialised in offering human figures with a rigged skeleton. Its human models are based on Genesis 8, a technology which they themselves created that allows full configuration of the person’s appearance (height, build, facial expression or details such as nails or teeth). Daz Studio is the software used to personalise said avatar.
- Mixamo. This is a library of human animations captured with Motion Capture to ensure their realism. It contains over 605 preset animations that can be modified with a series of parameters set in the library or manually in editing software such as Blender.
Designing virtual environments
- Blender and/or Cinema4D. 3D graphics software that can be used for designing and creating a physical environment, among other things. These environments can be textured, as mentioned above, using Adobe Substance. Blender also allows movement and animation of skeletons to be captured using depth sensors or 3D cameras. These animations can be recorded for later use with the designed avatar.
Interface design and user experience
- Blender and/or Cinema4D. Production of high-quality renders (images or videos).
- Unity and/or UnrealEngine. Production of high-quality real-time interactive platforms.
- Spark AR. Production of augmented reality filters for Instagram and Facebook.
