Fashion Design Software for fashion illustration in fashion design courses - fashion merchandising
Digital Fashion Pro 9 Academic is a digital fashion design software and design course that is taught and used in Fashion Design Classes & Fashion Merchandising on the College Level and in High Schools under Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS), Career and Technical Education (CTE), Computer Applications, Technology and Art Categories. It gives students the ability to design professional digital fashion sketches and design clothing regardless of skill level or drawing ability. We have a special academic package just for schools set up that we feel will give your students the best design experience with Digital Fashion Pro. Whether your students want to further their careers in design or design as a hobby – Digital Fashion Pro gives them the skills & tools they need to succeed.
Digital Fashion Pro also fits perfectly into STEM programs falling under the technology curriculum. STEM is becoming an increasing focus among our nation’s high school classes. The push to have US Students engage with more technology is very important and we are happy that we can aid in this area with Digital Fashion Pro. * The US Department of Labor – Bureau of Labor Statistics States: “Fashion designers use technology to design. They must be able to use computer-aided design (CAD) programs and be familiar with graphics editing software,” as one of the things necessary to be a fashion designer today. Most Industry Leaders would say that the use of CAD is more important in fashion illustration today than the ability to hand sketch + it has more practical applications.
Digital Fashion Pro is now taught in over 300 schools worldwide so you can trust it to deliver! On the High School Level – For Family and Consumer Sciences FCS / Career and Technical Education CTE Curriculum we even offer our Digital Fashion Pro CTE / FCS Lesson Plan Software Package (Optional) which is an amazing addition to overall classroom fashion design experience. It is an excellent resource for teachers teaching Digital Fashion Pro as it increases student engagement & learning even more. It prepares them for life as professional fashion label designer.

CTE / FCS Fashion Designer Lesson Plan – Free With Orders of 25 Or More DFP Academic Licenses

We also offer an optional add-on to Digital Fashion Pro Academic – The 8 Week CTE / FCS Fashion Designer Lesson Plan Package. This fabulous lesson plan package will really keep student engaged in the learning process. This item also teaches kids about Business and Entrepreneurship Which Are Also Core Principles of Many CTE Programs.
It has been a pleasure here at Harper Arrington Publishing to work with so many schools through our fashion design software called Digital Fashion Pro. Digital Fashion Pro Academic is used in over 300 high school and post-secondary education programs. It has been a near perfect learning tool for Family and Consumer Sciences (FCS) fashion classes. It has allowed students to create their own professional fashion sketches right their computers. 
Students love that they can design their own t-shirts, jeans, dresses, coats, shoes, handbags and more. The program helps students evolve in the world of fashion as fashion is one of the hottest industries among teens. Through use of Digital Fashion Pro Software also keeps youth engaged and focused. It is truly a remarkable education piece that is also used by beginners, fashion designers and clothing lines around the world.
In 2014 we introduced our Careers and Technical Education CTE Lesson Plan Pack for K12 fashion design classes to further aid fashion design teachers with the ability to do even more with their students in terms of creating real world fashion. The K12 CTE Lesson Plan has been a huge success as we are hearing from many of our fashion design teacher clients and school districts. I think it has been successful with students because it makes their time in the class truly exciting in many ways while also teaching them real world skills. Fashion students are learning team building and team work as they work in the lesson plan to create their own mock clothing lines. 
The fashion class is divided into group where each group then forms their own clothing. The K12 CTE Fashion Design Lesson Plan and Digital Fashion Pro Academic fashion design software has truly made an impact on all of our high school fashion classes that has invested in the package.
