This study aims to present the substantial and customizable potential of 3D dynamic fashion design, simulated with avatars in a virtual space, exploring a collaborative design process between a fashion designer and digital textile designers through online social platforms. For this, as theoretical backgrounds, the meaning of dynamic fashion design and its aesthetic, expressive, and communicative effects were identified, and an online collaborative design process and its effects on creative fashion design practices were also examined. In the technical process to develop 3D dynamic fashion garments, the researchers used 'CLO3D' and 'Aftereffects' to develop virtual avatars, wearing conceptual fashion garments of dynamic styles, and also tried an online collaboration with a motion graphic artist group by social network services to create digital textiles, including moving graphic imagery. Finally, sustainable and customized possibilities of 3D dynamic fashion design were inferred for a digitalized everyday lifestyle.
