3D Simulation Technology as an Instructional Tool for Promoting Size Inclusive Apparel Design
The purpose of this study is to introduce a teaching method for apparel design studios to integrate 3D simulation technology to promote inclusive apparel design processes. The proposed framework has been further applied to a design process of developing a plus-size womens wear: students can refer to the example as they follow the proposed framework. Some researchers consider traditional physical dress forms limit designers in visualizing morphological characterization of the human body (Sabina, Elena, Emila & Adrina, 2014). Integrating 3D simulation into design processes provides students with a means to customize and examine body figures for their own target consumers and students can flexibly explore size inclusive design processes.
