What you'll learn in this fashion design class:

Intro to Pointcarre Textile Software Pointcarre textile software is a powerful industry grade suite of software modules used for creating state of the art designs for woven fabrics as well as knits, jacquards and dobby style designs. There is also a ‘layer driven’ print design module that is state of the art in the textile design industry! In this hands on workshop we will be taking an in depth look at:

Creating woven fabric designs

• Quickly create additional color ways based upon a chosen palette

• Create highly detailed visualizations of your woven design using any imaginable weave structure

• Use established industry palettes such as Pantone

• Output our highly detailed visualization in any bitmap format

For Knits

• Take an existing design into the knit module and quickly step it out in repeat

• Quickly and easily reduce and separate the colors for this design

• Quickly create additional color ways

• Create highly detailed visualizations of your knit design using any number of knit structures

• Output our highly detailed visualization in any bitmap format

For Print Design

Using supplied motifs we will put Pointcarre’s layer driven capabilities to work so that we can quickly and easily create incredible seamlessly repeating print designs. These designs can then be used to create woven fabric designs, knits as well as complex prints. These designs can also then be saved as Photoshop files (with layers) that can then be opened using Photoshop and further enhanced using any of the filters and effects Photoshop has to offer. The last hour of the workshop will be spent actually printing our designs directly to textiles using Brother Intl’s Direct to Garment printing technology. The beauty of this technology is the fact that our designs can be prototyped directly to fabrics with zero set-up time. It need not be stated here the value of being able to quickly produce these types of samples for clients,

directors, merchandisers and reps.
