Shima Seiki debuts Shima Trend Archive & Forecast website
Sep '16
In order to aid fashion planners, designers and merchandisers in fashion planning, design and presentation, computerised knitting machine manufacturer Shima Seiki has debuted its Shima Trend Archive & Forecast (STAF) website. STAF is a web based service dedicated to empowering customers with the means to search and download from a rich stock of information.

According to the Japanese company, fashion designers and merchandisers are under enormous pressure to constantly updating offerings every few months and present new ideas on a consistent basis.

STAF features an information archive of fashion and colour trends covering the past 50 years, in addition to those for the next season, as well as a massive collection of fashion related content, covering materials, flat sketches and design patterns.

“In addition, a vast collection of fashion photos are available in conjunction with the Aflo photo agency, which together, will alleviate the situation and give industry professionals an unprecedented opportunity to enhance their planning efficiency and capability,” Shima Seiki said. (AR)
