This study was motivated by the need to understand how 3D CAD systems might impact on the designer and the fashion design process. Current descriptions of the industry indicated that new strategies were necessary to survive globalisation, technological change and the unprecedented demand for fashion products; and emphasised the significance of fashion design education to supply designers with new design skills. The main issue for UK mass-produced fashion appeared to be how to achieve faster design-to-market products within a global industry. Accounts acknowledged the impact of 3D CAD for garment virtual modelling, masscustomisation, garment fit and virtual try-on for retailing, but little has been written about how fashion designers are reacting to, or using new technology.
