The tools of creation have changed as technologies evolve. Check out what today's makers are using to facilitate the process.

We were asked by our friends at Intel to help explore what types of technology the modern-day fashion design student totes around on a daily basis.  The tools of design have rapidly evolved over the past decade. Gone are many of the analog tools that served as the primary methods of  creation. So, we spoke to some students from the BFA Fashion Design and AAS Fashion Design and Fashion Marketing programs at Parsons The New School for Design and asked them to document the types of technology that they interact with each day. The hope was to paint a picture of what types of tools are essential to artistic creation today. While we were at it, we thought we would dig a little deeper and asked them about their favorite app, most used piece of computer software, and which pieces of technology they couldn’t live without.  Here is what they had to say:
