Taiwan's Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) has initiated a new fashion hub in Taipei and in other regions across the country. The new fashion centres have been established by the IDB in cooperation with three industry research organizations and a number of local governments.

The fashion centres are established with an aim to intensify Taiwan's textile industry's design and technology innovation and to boost its global competitiveness.

Taiwan's Premier Wu Den-yih said that the opening of the new centres, marks the beginning of a new era for 'Made in Taiwan' (MIT) products.

With assistance of the IDB under the Ministry of Economic Affairs and the Taiwan Textile Federation (TTF), Fashion Institute of Taipei (FIT) was transformed into a fashion centre from a fashion cultural hall.

According to experts, Taiwan's textile industry has earned itself a good recognition amongst customers across the globe. Besides, an increasing number of Taiwanese designers are bagging prestigious global fashion awards.

The launch of new textile design hubs in Changhua, Yuniln, Taipei and Taichung regions are believed to boost the MIT brand with improved quality, more innovative designs and enhanced value addition. This would be so, because these centres would facilitate streamlining of the industry and thus production volumes could be hiked efficiently.

Besides helping the domestic textile and fashion design to keep in tune with up-to-the-minute global fashion trends, these new centres would even help to generate more prominent fashion designers from the next generation, the officials said.
