Fashion and Lifestyle always had a great impact on this industry in order to meet the demand of Lifestyle, Fashion and Creativity. There is huge range of Textile production and designing in different parts of the world giving an immense scope for designers to show their creativity and to do different experiments in textile industry. It involves understanding of traditional techniques as well as modern techniques of mass production.
