Profile of Divisions

Division of Kansei and Fashion Engineering

To create fashions for a world market of 7 billion people, we investigate the essence of fashion apparel through technological innovation.
Research is promoted from four perspectives: fashion text ile and apparel design, fashion information engineering, kansei evaluation and fashion business.

  • 1. Research on design and production technology of high-end jacket in the world.
  • 2. Simulating clothing interaction dynamics.
  • 3. Apparel design.
  • 4. Foot-material interaction simulations.

Research Field
Software
Research Theme
Support the production of the products which are comfortable for consumers by applying simulation or information technology to the fields of textile and apparel. The way of transmitting textile information by the Internet, or the virtual production of apparel products are studied.
Message
We set research topics that encompass as far as possible the expertise of individual members of the division with the aim of acquiring competitive funding for promotion of research. We also promote interactions with overseas researchers in an effort to create an environment conducive to internationally open research collaborations.
