Computer Science in Fashion

Using technology to stay at the forefront of fashion design

Computers have become an integral part of the fashion industry. Fashion designers use ever changing technology and computer aided design (CAD) programs to determine textile weaves, better size designs, and reduce the demand for manual sketches. The fashion industry, like many others, has evolved with the rise in online shopping. It’s now essential for fashion designers to understand the tools they’re using to design, market, and sell.

Make Real World Connections

Hear from people who use their programming skills and knowledge to advance the field of Fashion and how the industry is changing today.

Computers work with a binary system, that's how they understand information (ones and zeros). When you weave you also create analogies related to that—you go up or down with your thread.
