President of PolyU, Prof. Jin-Guang Teng said “It gives me great pleasure to inaugurate the SFT as the University’s third flagship and independent school. SFT’s vision is to be a world-leading centre in fashion and textiles education, interdisciplinary research and collaboration, playing a pivotal role in developing Hong Kong into a world-renowned fashion hub.”
It will comprehensively enhance the competitive advantage of SFT graduates and Hong Kong’s fashion and textile industry, while also aligning it with the market development of the Greater Bay Area.
The School is known for its outstanding teaching and academics who are leaders in a range of research areas, including smart and wearable textiles, medical textiles and functional clothes, social fashion design and sustainable fashion, digital marketing and fashion supply chain management.
SFT has been working closely with the local and international industrial sector to meet the growing demand for advanced technology in fashion and textile industries.
Significant projects include the Nu-Torque™ singles ring-yarn technology, the personalised posture training system for medical, sports and healthcare applications, and intelligent 3D human-modelling technology. These projects have had a profound impact on the industry.
The School has also achieved significant milestones in its pursuit for excellence in research to make a positive impact on society. SFT has maintained close ties with the Government and NGOs as it faced the COVID-19 pandemic.
