Virtual Fashion Design Competition
（ November, 2019 to May, 2020）
The Clothing Industry Training Authority Digital Fashion Lab (DFL) will organise the first citywide virtual fashion design competition to ignite the creativity of the youngsters and to weave the 3D technologies with their design journey. The competition aims to:
- Provide an opportunity for youngsters to learn the use of the latest 3D fashion design technologies
- Provide an infinite virtual experimentation space for youngsters to unlock their creative potential as well as to develop and test their moving design ideas
- Provide a chance for the community to appreciate the digital transformation and emerging skill requirements of the fashion industry
The competition consists of two rounds, the first and final rounds. Participants will receive professional training at each stage learning the use of virtual fashion design software. With the software, participants will create own virtual garments with their creativity and personal style for the competition.
