Toward Sustainability and Transformative Innovation

Call for papers

Innovation and sustainability have become the greatest driver of success for the global fashion and textile industry which are among the largest employers in Korea and globally.  The magnitude and complexity of this unprecedented market disruption has academia and the practitioners struggling to manage the phenomena. With information available 24/7/365 through digital access and transformative technology, the conventional perspective and analytic approach are not able to keep business sustainability nor value equation. Minimal research addresses this phenomenon and a robust body of knowledge is lacking to frame understanding. 
With this in mind, Fashion and Textiles is planning a collection on papers presented at the 2018 International Conference on Clothing and Textiles. Any presenters who have participated in this conference are invited to submit their papers to the collection. 

If you have questions concerning the special collection, please contact the guest editor, Dr. Yoon Jung Lee, or the KSCT office.

Submission deadline
