In the hyper-connected future, people, things, space, and everything will be networked and communicated, opening a new challenge and chance for every sector in the clothing and textile industry. The center of the industry moves quickly from product to service, from hardware to software, from functionality to information. What disruptive innovation will the future of the textile, clothing, and fashion industries experience in a smart-life space? How will higher education and research paradigm change in response to this?
Minimal research addresses this phenomenon and a robust body of knowledge are lacking to frame understanding. We particularly welcome submissions on topics addressing interdisciplinary knowledge of innovations using competencies in technology across all delivery channels, technologies, and market spaces for the clothing and textile industry.
New articles will be added here as they are published.
