The Apparel Technical Design Association (The ATDA), founded in 2011, is headquartered in Naples, FL and is the country’s first organization of its kind for technical design professionals in Apparel Industry.
We created the association to provide technical designers with a common place to share knowledge and skills with each another and with corporate partners and leaders.
We are planning to build a vibrant database of technical designers, a suite of professional development programs for technical designers, a suite of corporate consulting offerings for companies looking to create, improve or re-structure technical design organizations and, we want to share the beauty of this wonderful fashion industry profession with everyone.
We hope this association will grow to provide a place for the exchange of knowledge about technical design, but also a place that provides our members and partners with a way to maximize the impact of our profession.
Our first focus is on making sure that we reach out to you — practitioners in technical design – to begin to share collective wisdom with each other.
