Abstract

Successful textile and apparel retail businesses require extensive collaborations with various experts. Textile and apparel product designers work closely with artists to create new, fresh, relevant designs. Apparel product developers are engineers who work closely with latest technology that would help product engineering processes effectively and efficiently. Apparel marketers and merchandisers cannot work alone without knowing how the finished products should be displayed in a specific retail environment. Throughout these collaborations, technology is a key to combine all expertise together and communicate each other in a cohesive way. Therefore, being able to utilize various technologies throughout this process and work with various experts is one of the critical success factors for today’s retail employees.
