Q. How do you style someone who uses a wheelchair?A: Caitlin Robbins, Technical Design ’16, created clothes for her father, who has ALS and is in a wheelchair, for her capstone project. She’s now a designer for Tommy Hilfiger’s Adaptive Line.

My dad was, of course, my inspiration. He’s a bit of a fashionista.

Q. What is 3D fashion design software?A: During her internship at FIT’s Infor/DTech Lab, Lucy Chen, Fashion Design '19, used Bowzwear, a 3D fashion design software which is sustainable because it helps eliminate the samples from the garment production cycle.

I digitized a lot of the materials for the samples. You don’t even have to use actual fabric or actual materials to create it.
