Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify the skills and knowledge needed for Saudi women to succeed in the apparel retail industry (ARI). This study is essential to develop an apparel merchandising (AM) program for the apparel and textiles (AT) discipline in Saudi Arabia. It is important to prepare Saudi women for new careers in the apparel industry and provide alternative options for apparel and textiles students to choose from besides apparel design and textile science.
