Abstract

Changes in the fashion business are essential and creativity is always highly valued as a genuine source for generating new ideas in fashion products as well as fashion business practices. Students in the clothing and textile programs most likely pursue their careers in the fashion industry. People working in the fashion industry face problems of which solutions do not exist or need innovative solutions for brand or product differentiation in fast-paced environments. Given considerable interest in creativity and creative problem solving in the field, it would be beneficial to integrate creative problem solving into clothing and textile classrooms. In this study, previous research on the use of creative problem solving in various classrooms including clothing and textile classrooms is reviewed and a need for developing instructional strategies to incorporate creative problem solving is addressed.
