Summary

This is a highly competitive scholarship consisting of the award of fees with an annual maintenance grant of £17,688 GBP for 3 years.

The Scholarships are available to start as soon as possible. All candidates will be assessed and selection is based on academic merit.

Purchasing decisions and return rates for fashion products in online retailing are significantly affected by the differences between the visual appearance (e.g. colour and visual-tactile) of the online image and their real appearance, touch and feel when the products are received.

At the University of Leeds, we have developed a novel colour image capturing system that has been successfully used for imaging 2D fabric samples.

We have developed a unique tactile measurement system, the “Leeds University Fabric Handle Evaluation System” (LUFHES) to objectively characterise and distinguish fabric tactile properties. These tools will be enlisted in this project to develop a novel methodology to reproduce the colour and appearance of 3D formed fabrics as well as their visual-tactile properties.

This work will lay down a foundation for the effective presentation of both fabric colour and visual-tactile properties for images of fashion products for online retailing. 

Faculty information

The successful applicant will join the Leeds Institute of Textiles and Colour (LITAC), a collaborative international research Institute that applies academic expertise, working together with external partners, both industrial from across the world, to address global challenges and sustainable development in textile and colour industries.
