I just heard the sad news about passing of one of my dear friends and Prof.Edward Newton in Hong Kong today. We worked together while founding IFFTI International Foundation of Fashion and Technology Institutes in New Delhi in 1996-98 along with Mr. Saptarishi and Darlie Koshy and Rajesh Bheda. But we were also together in other Textile & Fashion forums like The Textile Institute. I was the PhD examiner of his student Kinor at PolyU. I remember the personal tour of PolyU given by him even today. He was a warm lovable person. RIP Edward Newton. You’ll be remembered.
