I assume you want to make actual clothes and articles, as opposed to clothes for CGI models, although software is available for both.

 

Take a look at this article which may help start your thinking.

Hi Richard - are you planning to design as hobby or you are planning to design in order to produce. 

If your end goal is volume production, I have some recommendations

 

  • Optitex: This one is Industry-standard software with robust features for complex garments and patternmaking. Most factories suppliers use this
  • CLO3D: The positive point of CLO3D is that is indeed its user-friendly interface with extensive fashion libraries and animation tools. It generates professional patterns and integrates well with other production workflows. Think of this as a new shiny tool in the town.
  • TUKA3D: Powerful software for design, technical development, and virtual sampling. It is not good for startups though. It is geared towards medium-large businesses with larger budgets.
  • Marvelous Designer: This one is popular for realistic draping and fabric simulation. Good for garment design, but fairly limited patternmaking tools.

 

If you are looking for professional help in terms of developing your fashion line. I would recommend checking out the resource section of [Reference removed by moderator]. They are clothing suppliers, you don't have to work with them. They have plenty of tools and checklist that could help you get started and scale in a professional manner. Here is the link [link removed by moderator]
