The Difference of Price Zone Evaluation According to Type of Consumer and Purchasing Behavior
KIm, Jung-Won ;
Fashion & Textile Research Journal, volume 4, issue 6, 2002, Pages 517~523
This study examines whether there are differences in consumer's evaluation price zone on the clothing clue (the type of clothing, brand, time of fashion, place of origin, material. submaterial, place for sale) according to consumer purchasing behavior. Therefore the ultimate goal is to offer help in fixing price when establishing marketing of the clothing industry by grasping the actual price set by consumers under the IMP system. The female consumers of 20s and 30s were chosen as study subjects for their sensitivity to the purchase of clothing. The tests carried out in this research are: SPSSIPC+ is used for frequency Analysis. The Results of this study are showed as the following: It was analyzed that 4 types of consumer are the reasonable consumption oriented consumer, fashion oriented consumer, the no care of fashion consumer and high price oriented consumer Among the several kinds such as the type of clothing, brand, time of fashion, place of origin, material, submaterial, place for sale, only on the type of clothing, there are difference in the type of the consumers, on the time of buying clothes, in the behavior of buying clothes and also on the degree of fashion and the place of origin among such kinds.

The present study selected female Japanese and Korean university students (a population that is assumed to be sensitive to the subject of fashion) as subjects. We investigated (1) their awareness of and attitudes about clothing styles, and (2) their relationships to fashion and various media. In both Japan and Korea, female students were highly interested in fashion and their major motive for adopting a given fashion was "style change" (the desire to change one's style by adopting a novel fashion) or "self-expression" (the desire to express oneself and achieve self-realization). They most frequently adopted a fashion during the acceptance phase (when the fashion has spread through the market and been shown extensively by the media). Korean students were more interested in and positive to fashion than were Japanese counterparts. Fashion magazines often served as the major source of information on clothing fashions. The frequency of buying magazines and the number of magazines bought were higher in Korea than in Japan. The time spent in reading these magazines was also longer in Korea. The frequency of buying fashion magazines correlated with the degree of interest in fashion and the time when a fashion was adopted. Students who adopted a fashion earlier tended to buy fashion magazines more frequently.
Comparative Analysis on the Visual Body Proportion of Girls in Middle and High School
Kim, Soon-Boon ; Lee, Hae-Ju ;
Fashion & Textile Research Journal, volume 4, issue 6, 2002, Pages 534~543
The purpose of this study was to identify the body proportions of girls in middle and high school who have been a major sales target of clothing manufacturers and thus to provide the basic information on the proportion of human body, which is essential for manufacturer to produce clothing and for individual consumers to select right apparels to wear and purchase. The subjects were 133 girls in middle school and 141 girls in high school. As measuring instruments, the Martin's anthropometer, tapelines, and belts for marking waistline were used. In order to analyze the data, t-test and factor analysis were used. The measurement of vertical distance between vertex and measuring points, showed a significant difference between the high school group and middle school group in every item. In the comparison of eight head proportion between the two groups, middle school students had 7.2 head proportion while girls in high school had 6.9 head proportion in detail. The factor analysis of major divided body parts of the two groups indicated that waist-hip and hip-crotch, constituting lower trunk together, vertex-apex nasi, and apex nasi-back neck point, constituting head together, back neck point-spina scapula and spina scapula-waist, constituting posterior of upper body together, and mentum-bust point and bust point-waist, constituting anterior of upper body together, were in inverse proportion.
Dressing Poses in Relation to Clothing Thermal Insulation

By the movable thermal manikin developed by China Dong Hua university, the laws of clothing thermal insulation influenced by dressing poses are studied. It is found that
on nude thermal manikin has no relation to testing pose as a whole (notable level is 5%), while the change of testing pose influences
value on parts of body obviously. The testing result
on clothed thermal manikin has relation to testing pose. The
value of the whole body in seated pose decreases 20 percent compared with that in standing pose (notable level is 1%). In view of heat transmission theory, the reasons are pointed out based on the knowledge of heat transmission.
Change of Main Body Temperature and Reduction of Energy Consumption in a 1 Tube 2 Chamber Bent Silkworm Type Dyeing Machine
Lee, Choon-Gil ; Woo, Kyung-Sung ;
Fashion & Textile Research Journal, volume 4, issue 6, 2002, Pages 550~556
The changes of the main body temperature of a I tube 2 chamber bent silkworm type dyeing machine and the reduction of energy consumption of the dyeing machine by the energy saving design are reported. This dyeing machine was developed for the purpose of the energy saving and high efficiency. In this study, the changes of the main body temperature of the 1 tube 2 chamber bent silkworm type dyeing machine were studied experimentally. Especially the effect of the blower motor electric current and the main body pressure at various blower frequencies were studied experimentally. In the experimental data for the changes of main body temperature, it was shown that the main body temperature increased as the blower motor electric current and the main body pressure increased.
A Study on the Antibacterial Activity of Chitosan on the MRSA by the AATCC Test Method 100 and Modified AATCC Test Method 100
Choi, Jeong-Im ; Jeon, Dong-Won ;
Fashion & Textile Research Journal, volume 4, issue 6, 2002, Pages 557~563
Water-soluble chitosan and water-insoluble chitosan with molecular weight of 2,000,000, 500,000, 80,000, and 40,000 with more than 90%of degree of deacetylation were produced to test antibacterial activity of chitosan against a pathogenic bacteria, Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus(MRSA). the AATCC Test Method 100and Modified AATCC Test Method 100 were used to evaluate the antibacterial activity of chitosan. Antibacterial activity of chitosan/acetic acid solution was the same when they were tested by two different methods, but those of polyester fabrics treated with chitosan/acetic acid solution were different in different antibacterial test. So several problems were found in the experimental methods. The AATCC Test Method 100 seems that excessive nutrition exists in inoculum solution by quantitative analysis on the basis the result of antibacterial activity on chitosan/acetic acid solution and amount of chitosan attached to the surface of treated fabrics.
The Effect of Spacer on Microclimate and Comfort Sensation in Protective Clothing for Firefighters
Chung, Gi-Soo ; Lee, Dae-Hoon ;
Fashion & Textile Research Journal, volume 4, issue 6, 2002, Pages 564~566
Protective clothing for firefighters typically consists of a flame resistant outer shell and inner layers. The inner layers are generally composed of a moisture barrier and a thermal barrier. On performing the task in fire place the heat and perspiration generated from the body become trapped inside the protective clothing. Those heat and moisture result into heat-stress and physical fatigue of fire fighter, which hinder the work. Therefore, the system of clothing designs and material layers must be chosen carefully to balance protection and comfort. 3 kinds of protective clothing of 3 layer structure were used in the experiment of physiological comfort. From the comparison of wear trials with the 3 kinds of layers in firefighters clothing, it indicates that the moisture dissipation of A+B2+C was highest, following A+BI+C andA+B3+C. And the heat dissipation of A+BI+C and A+B2+C were better than A+B3+C. In the protective clothing with A+B3+C, heat and perspiration generated through exercise remained in clothing system long and caused discomfort.
