Abstract: As we move toward the second decade of the 21st century, the timing seems pertinent to take a focused look at the future. In the second issue of its second volume in 1984, the Clothing and Textiles Research Journal (CTRJ) published a future-focused issue. More than 20 years later, another focus on the future is timely and long overdue. The purpose of this two-part issue is to feature research and creative scholarship focused on the study of the future of the apparel and textiles field and analysis of the effects that future trends may have on education, research, business, and creative arts and design.
