www.apparelkey.com is unique, since (1) it is the only knowledge portal for the fashion and textile industry; (2) it is an e-encyclopedia with advanced text and image search engine as well as intelligent user interface; (3) It has wider coverage and greater relevancy to the apparel industry than conventional search engines such as Yahoo and Hotbot. The development of apparelkey.com is a result of wide international collaboration under the leadership of Institute of Textiles and Clothing, Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
