Hi Avery, I'm so excited to hear that you have an interest in fashion design and tech. I would suggest that you start following some blogs/websites and reading some articles about wearables. Here are just a few resources to get you started: https://www.businessoffashion.com/articles/fashion-tech http://www.cnbc.com/2013/06/28/Future-Fashion:-10-Wearable-Tech-Trends-to-Watch.html http://www.thesnugg.com/The-Combination-of-Fashion-and-Technology-Past-Present-and-Future.aspx http://www.forbes.com/sites/rachelarthur/2016/06/30/the-future-of-fashion-10-wearable-tech-brands-you-need-to-know/#6487eb584852

Hi Avery, read about the company, Ministry of Supply in Boston, MA started by 3 MIT students- very interesting, for sure! Since so much of manufacturing is done overseas...many places have Gerber or Lectra systems for grading and marker making. There's probably more information on the web about this. Some companies have a PLM (product lifestyle management) system that allows various departments to communicate, lessening the amt of emails. Say, purchasing , design, product development, quality control each have their own dedicated sections to write information but only can be read by others. For QC, one would comment on the results of lab reports, wash test results, etc. Design could comment on lab dips, button colors etc. Depending on the size of the company would factor in as to how much technology they have and use...smaller companies, not so much given the large monetary investment. I'm not sure if there are any manufacturers nearby to where you live (has it snowed yet!?) See if you can "work" there to see what it's like- what goes on getting that garment on display in a store. Hopefully, I've given you some insight! Sorry, for my late response, Nancy
