Prof. Sanjay Gupta, Vice Chancellor, WUD, Sonipat

Who Should Attend:
Professional pattern makers, fit specialists, garment designers & teachers of pattern making and fit mapping will stand to gain immensely from this workshop. Online garment retailers can gain a deep appreciation about the importance of fit in garment purchase decisions.

Basic knowledge of pattern making and fit testing. Familiarity with CAD softwares and MS Excel. All participants must carry a laptop computer for the workshop.

Course Plan:
Session by Ms. Daisy Veitch (Australia) will discuss anthropometry for apparel & fit mapping; Statistics involved in selecting cases, key variables, sampling & sample size estimation; followed by Modeling, CAD & Prototyping including Digital human modeling, CAD & fit estimation and processing of 3D scans, FIT mapping will be discussed through fit testing methods and mapping against target market. A software will be installed on individual laptops for a module on understanding about 3D scanning and use and manipulation of 3D scan date using software and visualization of fit.

Practice sessions will be conducted in small groups by Prof. Devender Kharab & Umair Khan (WUD) dealing with development of the concept of fit, fit-measurement techniques, anthropometric data collection and recording within the group and fit testing and plotting and analysis of data using excel sheet.

Prof. Kathleen Robinette (USA) and Ms Sandra Alemany (Spain) will join in by video link for some sessions.

Prof. Deepti Gupta (IITD) will discuss the design of motorcycle riders clothing for hot weather conditions. Kinematic study and design of clothing for balancing protection & comfort zones.

Dr. Simeon Gill (UK) will explore the relationship between patterns and bespoke clothing. Through use of specific examples, he will display areas of theory development that support our understanding of body to pattern relationships and enable product customisation.

The last session will focus on specific case studies on design of protective clothing for various applications. Dr. Liz De Rome (Australia) will conduct a session on the design & construction of motorcycle protective clothing - Impact risk zones as a framework for protection; Dr. Lynn Boorady (USA) will share her experiences on designing of Fire Fighters' clothing and Dr. A Shaw (USA) will discuss the Design & Testing of pesticide sprayers (Protective) Clothing.
