The studies extensively examine the processes of clothing production, the knowledge of which saves me in my current field. I am currently working with Clo3D clothing design program. We are team of three virtual design specialist. The sphere is new and challenging every day. A 3D specialist needs technological and construction knowledge, and at the same time, there are many creative solutions. Improving in this field means constantly expanding your knowledge in 3D applications. In order to get the most realistic product possible, you need to use more than one 3D program and other various editing programs.

Founder of the "Varlių spinta" brand


I am proud of my university, which developed me even more as a person and put me on my feet as a responsible, entrepreneurial, self-confident person. After my studies, I seriously decided that I cannot and do not know how to work for others - I want to work for myself. This is how the brand "VARLIŲ SPINTA" was born.
While developing my brand, I already knew how to draw up a business plan (although I'll admit, I draw them up only in my head), and all the production processes are still very useful. Of course - I can't forget the technological lines! In the studios, we used to take apart the clothes and had to describe what was sewn after what.
in 2015 I completed my master's studies. What you will learn - you will not carry it on your shoulders! Ambition will lead to success.
