Fashion and Hyper-Connected Future

This special issue will carry revised and extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2020 International Conference on Clothing and Textiles.

Edited by Yuri Lee

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?
