The University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and TAFE NSW, which offers education and training courses, will set up a new Centre for Fashion and Textiles Sustainability in Sydney with a $200,000 grant from the New South Wales (NSW) government, NSW minister for skills and tertiary education Geoff Lee announced recently. The centre will also impart training in advanced manufacturing.

The aim is to fast-track the Australian fashion industry’s post COVID-19 recovery and usher in a new era of sustainable fashion using cutting-edge design technology.

Other collaboration possibilities in fashion, design and textiles being explored under the new agreement include a precinct fashion roundtable that brings together TAFE NSW teachers, UTS academics and local fashion businesses to collaborate and share ideas.

The NSW government’s recently-announced plans to invest an additional $480-$500 million to transform the nearby Powerhouse Museum into a fashion and design hub further solidifies the precinct as an emerging epicentre of Australian fashion excellence, according to an UTS press release.

The two institutions already have collaborations in engineering qualifications.
