If you have questions regarding technology used in the fashion industry
or textile industry, you can ask questions in the
fashion technology group at the fashion industry network. If you
work for a tech company that sells product to the fashion industry, you
should join the group to help educate members regarding your products.
If you work for a tech company that sells product to the
fashion industry, you should join the technology group to help educate members
regarding your products.
Technology is on the move. Update
your systems before they become obsolete.
By the way, you may be aware
of this already but online auctions use technology to run properly.
Due to the fact that clothing and fashion accessories are sold during online
auctions, the auctions are a good example of
fashion technology at work.
So, if you are interested in fashion technology and at the same time have
interest in shopping for clothing, you may want to check out the
auctions on eBay.
