It also helps the educationalists in preparing materials for teaching and learning. The tool has been developed to perform as a portal site for compiling and presenting online knowledge and news relevant to fashion and textiles. The Apparelkey acts as a network and homepage to connect people together from different professional and geographical areas. The site also aids small and medium apparel firms in terms of their business trading and information sharing. The services and the functions provided by Apparelkey have enabled these firms to explore business opportunities actively and easily through the virtual apparel network.
