Hong Kong is the hub of global sourcing. The industry is in high demand for fashion designers and merchandisers who can make the right decisions on material selection for their designs and who can resolve problems related to material performance in production. The course aims at equipping fashion designers and merchandisers with in-depth understanding, analysis and technical knowledge of fashion materials, their characteristics and performance in relation to garment production and design considerations. Upon completion of the course, practitioners can distinguish the technologies applied at different stages of material processing and apply the knowledge of different production requirements.
