Saudi Arabia’s Fashion Commission has partnered with Marangoni Institute in order to launch the “Digital Fashion Program” to train 100 Saudi designers on creative digital skills.

The program will be presented virtually for five months. Marangoni Institute is internationally recognized as one of the finest schools for art, design and fashion.

The digital fashion program will contribute to reducing waste resulting from textile manufacturing. It will allow collaboration with designers from all over the world.

“The program will focus on the development of the fashion industry and the design processes with innovative technologies, the use of the Clo3D digital fashion design program to design prototypes of clothes and accessories, learning the mechanism of creating realistic 3D digital fashion, and the use of graphics to host virtual fashion shows,” as per the statement.

By the end of the program, participants will be able to create realistic fashion elements digitally using 3D modeling, as well as master rendering techniques, which improves designers’ ability to modify fashion designs and produce them in an optimal way compared to traditional design.

The CEO of the Fashion Commission Mr. Burak Cakmak said that, “Providing Saudi designers with innovative skills needed to thrive in today’s fashion world is key to our success at the Fashion Commission.”

“We are delighted to have the opportunity to continue our long-standing partnership with Marangoni Institute as we prepare our designers for the future of fashion,” Mr. Cakmak further added.
