dc.description.abstract <p>In recent years, the apparel industry has been integrating a number of emerging technologies. Methods such as automated production and 3D printing or additive manufacturing are shifting the dynamic for traditional apparel designers. Such evolution is leading to a shift in paradigm as various industry companies are actively exploring and applying such emerging technology in commercial products and manufacturing processes. This study examined the perception of both industry and academia in the changing environment for designers, makers, and users and explored approaches in locating resources for supporting both industry and academia in future growth. Data suggests that roles of designer, makers, and users are quickly changing with reconfigured knowledge base and new skill sets in the age of novel technology. Much disconnect still exists between industry and academia and among groups of designers, makers, and users in realizing the best mechanism in transitioning to the new ways.</p>
