India’s National Institute of Fashion Technology (NIFT) prepare students with Optitex
As an institute for fashion technology, NIFT needs to constantly stay up to date with the new demands of the industry. "We see Optitex as more of a solution provider than a technology provider," says Prof. Mathur. "A technology is something you get once and after two years you need to get a new one. But since we have chosen a solution, it will keep upgrading." The center for fashion education in India uses Optitex 2D and 3D solutions to teach students critical skills they need to stay ahead in the fashion industry. "All export manufacturers in India use this technology. If our students are trained on Optitex," she says, "then they will be well prepared."
