Abstract

Fashion is cross-cultural, multifaceted and on a daily basis merges design, manufacturing and engineering, business and management. It is imperative that students in undergraduate textile and apparel programs develop a global mindset that encompasses multiple perspectives. Future industry leaders and consumers will be required to consider issues and build a holistic understanding of complex problems facing the textile and apparel Industry. (LeHew, 2005).
