Teachers and students of the British BA (Hons) Fashion BA programme and Fashion Design Basic Course continuous professional development course explored AccuMark software developed by Gerber Technology. In the course of two weeks they learned how to create and change patterns in this program, how to lay these pattern, and everything else that is necessary for the production of clothes from scratch.
"AccuMark by Gerber is the first such automated software for cutting. We teach students to work by hand, this is the unique feature of our educational process. But after graduation, students will begin working on real projects, and they will be required to know how this system works. Then they will be able to understand which models can actually be brought into production, and which ones cannot," said Alexander Saukov, head of academic workshops and technical resources.
The survey conducted at the end of the course revealed that most students agree that Gerber is easy to learn and needs to be added to the Fashion Design educational programmes. All students took tests, and in September everyone will receive international certificates.
