The Manufacturing Excellence Taskforce of Australia (META), which helps the Australian manufacturing industry evolve with increasing efficiency and competitiveness on a local and global scale, has launched a new collaborative hub, based around the textiles and clothing, in partnership with the Council of Textile & Fashion Industries of Australia (TFIA), at the Melbourne Spring Fashion Week (MSFW), which was held from the 30th August to 7th September, 2014.

The META Textiles Collaboration Hub comprises of 19 participants, representing seven manufacturing companies and six research organisations that include the TFIA, Nobody Denim, Stewart, The Art Clothing Company, Melbourne Made, Bruck Textiles, etc.

Together, participants in the META Textiles Collaboration Hub will identify high value markets where textile technologies can provide innovative solutions to those market needs.

The managing director of META, Zoran Angelkovski, said by bringing together manufacturing, research, and application skills, META Textiles Collaboration Hub will help identify and expand the creation of high performance textile products for performance oriented markets within the consumer, industrial, government and defence sectors.

The META Textiles Collaboration Hub will audit the health of the supply chain and understand the value proposition of Australian designed and made clothing to consumers, Zoran said.

TFIA CEO, Kiri Delly, said there will be a fantastic array of design talent on display throughout the nine days of MSFW and this is a good opportunity to also consider the challenges businesses can face in manufacturing these designs.

The future of Australian fashion will be in small, responsive companies that provide niche, value-add offerings and are excited to launch the META Textiles Collaboration Hub to develop and articulate these opportunities both back to the industry and the consumer, Kiri added.

The META Textiles Collaboration Hub member and associate professor for Fashion and Textiles, RMIT University, Karen Webster said the Hub will work to understand the future opportunities of Australian made clothing and how the future supply chain can meet the needs of that value proposition.

The META Textiles Hub is one of the 20 collaboration hubs that META is establishing. (GK)
