Compendium on the Application and Impact of AI in the Fashion Industry

The IG Fashion Compendium is the result of transnational research on the need to apply AI tools (like Chatbots) in the learning and training process of fashion-related subjects. In this document, we demonstrate all the data collected at the national level in Bulgaria, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and Romania, covering topics such as sustainable fabrics, zero waste pattern making and cutting, design for decomposing, etc. The gathering of the information has been carried out through desk research (collection of green good practices in the fashion industry) and field research (interviews with VET learners/teachers to investigate their knowledge of AI tools, their application potential, relevance, and usefulness for educational purposes). You can download and read the Compendium by choosing the preferred language.
