The Fashion. Art Design Institute, Donghua University and Lectra have been partners since 1997. The school chose Lectra solutions to ensure that students receive training to prepare them for life in the fashion industry. After several years teaching Lectra’s design, pattern-making and marker-making solutions - Kaledo, Modaris, and Diamino - the Institute has just taken one step further with the launch of a new Lectra 3D course for pattern-making students.
