Production Team Take 2 Day Optitex Course

Optitex Pattern Design Software is proving to be a big hit with leading brands and etailers. At the Fashion Technology Academy we teach introductory, 2-day and 3-day, Optitex courses for beginners and up. The cutting-edge software combines 2D design and true to life 3D visualisation that enables fashion production teams to accurately fine tune their garment designs and patterns, effectively reducing time and fabric waste.

The production team have regularly sent in staff members to learn all about this innovative software. On the 21st & 24th January, Fashion-Enter tutor and pattern cutting manager Claire Solley welcomed another small group of 4 from the camp. They spent 2 full days learning how they can use Optitex effectively within their own job roles.

Feedback from the group was excellent and included:

“I learnt how to use Optitex as a Garment Tech for fit session purposes and how to add tweaks to the patterns. Claire was great and helped me with all my questions.” – S

“I found out how to amend patterns, add prints, measure and review the fit of a garment using Optitex. Claire was a great teacher. Very attentive to the classes needs. Thank-you!” – R

“This was my first chance to experience Optitex firsthand. I gained a better understanding of its capabilities and use the system to manipulate patterns, i.e. lengthen / shorten. Use the avatar to see / add prints, logos, seeing different sizes, button positioning etc. Claire is extremely clear and patient when explaining the system.” – M

“Claire, you’re great. You made the course really interactive and easy to follow / learn.” – R
