A steering group working on a £1.5m project to breathe new life into the UK's clothing and textile industry is gearing up for its next meeting tomorrow (February 7). Chief executives and directors of many of the country's top retailing and clothing manufacturing giants are meeting in Manchester. They will pinpoint the 10 projects to be tackled by the Clothing and Textile Forum, which was unveiled by Textiles Minister, Patricia Hewitt, last year.
