The Tex­tile In­sti­tute opens head­quar­ters in Wuhan

Changjiang Weekly - - FOCUS - By Sue Liu

The Tex­tile In­sti­tute an­nounced that it will set up its China head­quar­ters in Wuhan.

The Tex­tile In­sti­tute is a unique or­ga­ni­za­tion spe­cial­iz­ing in tex­tiles, cloth­ing and footwear. The in­sti­tute has in­di­vid­ual and cor­po­rate mem­bers in up to 80 coun­tries. The mem­ber­ship cov­ers all sec­tors and all dis­ci­plines in tex­tiles, cloth­ing, and footwear. The aim of the in­sti­tute is to fa­cil­i­tate learn­ing, to rec­og­nize achieve­ment, to re­ward ex­cel­lence, and to pass on in­for­ma­tion.

Stephanie Dick, Direc­tor of Op­er­a­tions and Mem­ber­ship at the Tex­tile In­sti­tute, said that the in­sti­tute has a long as­so­ci­a­tion with Wuhan Tex­tile Uni­ver­sity. The agree­ment signed on May 30 is about set­ting up a branch here to rep­re­sent their mem­bers so that Wuhan can have col­lab­o­ra­tors through­out the world. "The Tex­tile In­sti­tute is an in­ter­na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tion; we want to bring ex­perts from around the world, and link them with in­dus­try and aca­dem­i­cally." said Dick.

This is the direc­tor's third visit to Wuhan; she com­mented on how im­pres­sive the lo­cal fash­ion and de­sign stu­dents are here. "I think the de­sign side is re­ally de­vel­op­ing in Wuhan, and the col­lab­o­ra­tion among stu­dents around the world will def­i­nitely help every­one learn to­gether."
