The 13th international conference by Society of Dyers and Colourists (SDC) EC discussed innovation in the areas of chemical compliance, certification, fashion and business in the textile supply chain. Over 200 delegates from process houses, brand, retailers, fashion and technical educational institutions participated in the recent conference held in Mumbai.

At the international conference and the fashion show, there was joint effort to put forward the innovation, ideas and projects that would help everyone involved in the textile supply chain to take a step forward in creating a greener and happier ecosystem for all its living beings.

Based on the theme ‘Innovations in Textile Technology and Fashion towards a Circular Economy’, the conference hosted various programmes like seminars, presentations and panel discussions.

The textile industry is struggling to reduce its foot print and one of the promising pathways to this is to embrace the concept of the ‘Circular Economy’. The technology and fashion segments of the textile supply chain can benefit immensely if they work in tandem with each other, SDC EC said in a press release.

At the conference, Dr Graham Clayton, CEO, SDC UK shared his view and plan for ‘SDC –Global Vision’. The SDC has now moved onto a concept of an online virtual learning environment by conducting online courses which contain updated ASDC module material. The format of this is very much designed to meet the needs of today's learners with mobile and 24/7 access, containing manageable material to enable students to ‘earn and learn’.

Panel discussions were focused on dyes and chemicals compliance, sustainable business Strategies and ideas to support the textile computation industry. A technical presentation on Circular Economy: Innovations in Design and supply chain management was given by Felix A. K Pinto - sales director, South Asia, South East Asia & ANZ, X Rite India Pvt. Ltd. He highlighted the importance of colour and helping the brands in selecting the right colour. He mentioned the challenges in the production process and total appearance capture system that consist of camera that can scan the object from every angle, helps in visualizing the product. He introduced the Pantone cloud- its tools and concept of 3-D object making that can reduce the cycle of prototype and sampling in garment industry that can help in reducing waste. He concluded saying that for sustainable production 3-D object making can help in reducing the steps of making prototypes and wastage of resources. (RR)
