Australian Fashion Directions - Getting it Right
The Australian Textile, Clothing and Footwear (TCF) Industry faces an uncertain future in the light of changing global trends. Manufacturing in Australia has diminished dramatically and management of the Supply Chain has been restructured. Very few large clothing factories remain, while small fashion designers and entrepreneurs are emerging and sometimes thriving. Additionally, an analysis of skills within the TCF Industry identifies that many ‘early’ skills associated with the industry have been lost and the implications of new trends have yet to be fully appreciated.
