COVID-19 forced companies and educational institutions to ramp up use of 3D design software. In 2020, Assistant Professor Amy Sperber offered training to 64 FIT students in one such program, CLO 3D. Students used it to render their garments in a virtual space and bolster their portfolios with 3D animated designs. This year, the department made CLO 3D training available to all Fashion Design BFA students in their final semester.
This gallery features a selection of 3D fashion artwork created by students in the class of 2021.

My collection ‘ WE ROBOT ’ narrates a fantasy about how all humankind is artificial intelligence robots. I explored tech yarns such as UV color change or antibacterial yarns and sustainable yarns like bamboo or Bazelon throughout my design process to show what future knit will be like on humanoids.
