Fashion College aligns modules with Lectra 3D technology

Founded in 1965 in Québec, Cégep Marie-Victorin College offers a fashion curriculum covering the whole collection process, from design to product development, using manual techniques and technology skills. A clothing arts program was launched in 1972, which soon became a fashion design program. 
 
In 2003, the fashion school chose Lectra to set up an avant-garde course in pattern making, using Lectra’s product development solution, Modaris. This marked a very important milestone and the Cégep Marie-Victorin Fashion School became a Privilege Partner school in 2011. 
 
Today the Cégep Marie-Victorin Fashion School offers three programs: fashion design, fashion marketing and clothing production management.
 
Each year, between 75 and 100 students graduate in fashion design. The college has also built a strong international reputation thanks to various partnerships and associations with fashion organizations and institutions.
 
“The Cégep Marie-Victorin Fashion School is ruled by two words: dynamism and innovation. This is why we chose Lectra to support our courses, because we share the same vision of fashion,” says Marco Roy, Fashion School coordinator at the Cégep Marie-Victorin Fashion School.
 
“We feel proud to work with Lectra because they care so much about supporting and equipping future generations with technology solutions based on the challenges of the fashion industry,” explains Marco Roy. 
 
Now that fashion has taken on global proportions, the Canadian fashion industry has to redefine its role and needs. “Lectra offers us avant-garde and innovative solutions to support us as we do our best to train future professionals to meet the fashion industry’s new challenges,” he adds.
 
Anne-Marie Fernet, Fashion Design program coordinator who has been teaching at the Cégep Marie-Victorin Fashion School since 1988, finds it stimulating to align her teaching modules with the various possibilities offered by Lectra’s virtual patternmaking and prototyping solution. 
 
“Lectra’s 3D technology will enable our students to visualize styles on a virtual mannequin, and make quick adjustments and modifications that will be immediately associated with the flat pattern,” she declares. “3D technology is also useful for design: you can check technical elements like fabric draping, sizes, cuts and lengths on a 3D mannequin.”
 
Her students are also extremely motivated by new technologies, which allow them to vary their design tools. “Lectra’s Modaris solution has been the best discovery of our fashion design course,” says Laura Vouligny-Prévost, who just graduated. “It offers us significant improvements in speed, accuracy and reduces repetitive tasks,” she explains.
