This study examined the characteristics of generative design methodology, and it selected and analyzed 11 sites that provide design development services using generative methodology, INPUT data were classified into design form factor based on the choices of each and the variable form associated with each participant's movement. In designing the algorithms, designers set the meth- od and range of participation according to the characteristics of the design, and linked them with design components. This provided the study with a discriminative design process. This resulted in a type with morphological characteristics and a type that emphasized epidermal formability. The generative design methodology has value as an alternative process in the field of fashion where the utilization of digital technology is becoming universal based on contingency and variability. The results of this study can be used as basic data for the study of personalized design through the extension of methodology of digital-based fashion design and generative methodology.
