The 89th Textile Institute World Conference retrospectively honoured the 2013’s winners of Annual Awards, a recognition given by Manchester’s Textile Institute to individuals or organisations for their outstanding contribution to the textile industry.

The Textile Institute Research Publication Award was collected by the co-authors of ‘It’s Vintage Darling! An exploration of vintage fashion retailing.’ The recipients were Dr Julie McColl, Catherine Canning, Karinna Nobbs, Louise McBride and Linda Shearer.

Gordon Thomson CText FTI chairman, Lancashire/Cumbria Section of The Textile Institute, UK bagged the Companionship trophy for his work towards the substantial advancement of general interests of the textile industry.

Bangladesh’s DBL Group and Denmark’s Novozymes respectively picked up the Sustainability Award and The Textile Institute Innovation Award.
