Abstract. The emerging computer technology and rapid development of applications advances apparel industry in simulating digital fabric prints design and virtual 3D body modeling system. There is a research gap in the development of digital prints on 3D body models to enhance the physical attractiveness of body shape. The successful development is suitable for use digitally in all aspects of apparel industry. To explore the influences of digital fabric prints in judging female physical attractiveness, the critical parameters that influence body shape attractiveness were used to morph different digital fabric prints for a virtual 3D model. A group of college-age students in Hong Kong were asked to conduct a set of questionnaires with different fabric prints mapped on the 3D model and rank the attractiveness of the female body shape. The visual perception of digital fabric prints in judging the attractiveness of female body, the influences and relationships when using different shape parameters to morph the digital prints for a virtual 3D model were investigated in this paper.

Keywords. 3D body modeling, digital printing, fabric prints design, female physical attractiveness
