Heralding change in textile and fashion industry

Kangan Institute's award winning Textile and Fashion Hub has been leading change in industry and was most recently featured at the Technical Textiles and Nonwovens Association (TTNA)'s skills conference held in February 2013 as well as the Australasian Textiles and Fashion Magazine March 2013 edition.

At the conference Kangan Institute Textile and Fashion Hub project manager Gail Bray discussed the use of digital technology both as a training tool and as a means of transforming SME business processes to suit modern industry needs.

The conference also highlighted successful programs carried out at the Textile and Fashion Hub such as the ongoing Introduction to Commercial Knitwear Development workshop.

Based in Richmond, Kangan Institute's Textile and Fashion Hub is a space for SMEs such as designers, product developers, graphic designers, research and developers, students or anyone with a passion for textiles and fashion to access resources, knowledge, leading edge digital equipment and technical experience.

The $5m facility was created in partnership with the Council of Textile and Fashion Industries of Australia (TFIA) and AusIndustry.
