ITC Alumni Networking Series

7 Oct 2021

Institute of Textiles and Clothing

Hosted by Prof. Jintu Fan, Head and Chair Professor of ITC, the first ITC Alumni Networking Series was initiated on 30 September 2021. In light of the social distancing restrictions, the activity was organised in a hybrid live format in the ITC 4D Theatre and streamed on Zoom.

Prof. Fan shared the news that a series of consultations on upgrading the Institute to a School is being conducted among staff and students, alumni and industrialists. "A new, independent school will provide a platform for ITC to more effectively achieve its vision of being the leading institution in education, research and partnership in the field of fashion textile and design. It will also make ITC more visible." Prof. Fan said.

A webinar, "Fashion Technology Adaptions – Past, Present and Future of the Supply Chain", followed. Three alumni, Ms Idy Lee from UNIFi3D, Mr Kim Ho from Crystal International Group and Mr Roger Chan from Cobalt Fashion shared their views on various issues. These included:

  • how modern fashion technologies are integrated in the current product and supply chain in HK/Greater China;

  • what routes were followed in adapting these technologies in HK/Greater China;

  • what role the design/product design sector is seen to play in fashion technology adoption; and

  • what impacts and advancements are foreseen in the industry for the coming 5-10 years in HK/Greater China.

The discussion was given by Dr Sarina Sun and Dr Tsai-chun Huang, both ITC Research Assistant Professors.

Before the end of the activity, Dr Joanne Yip, Chairlady of the Partnership and Development Working Group, offered a facility tour to the alumni, who cherished the opportunity to reunite with their classmates and teachers!
