Unfortunately, I do not personally use a design software (I am not a designer). You may want to visit the design group on this site (find in the groups section) and post your questions about design softare). You can also try posting questions in the forum if you do not get a response in the group.
Khendra - to answer your question about the Optitex software, I have never personally used the software. However, I have a been friends with the president of that company for many years. Do you want me to ask him to have a sales person contact you to explain the software?
You can find additional choices at the fashion software section at Apparel Search.
Khendra - please tell us a bit more about the fashion empire that you are building. We are all very interested in your plans. It is definately important to have high goals. It is equally or more important to have a concrete plan on how you will reach your goals. Some times writting to tell others about your plan, helps you get organized. Anyway, when you have a chance, please add a bit more to your profile.
If you have any questions about this network, please do not hesitate to let me know.
