ABSTRACT A cross-sectional survey was undertaken to examine the factors that influenced the dominance of foreign fabric over local fabric in HND fashion-shows in Takoradi Polytechnic. The study focused on two domains of apparel, fabric and costume designed for fashion-shows in TAkoradi Polytechnic. Judgment sampling technique was used to draw sample of 141 participants of old and current (2014) third year students for a questionnaire survey. The data were analysed by using correlation to examine the interdependency between variables and why the dominance of foreign fabric. The result indicated that there was no interdependent between local fabric manufacturers and the respondents. In effect, foreign fabric dominated local fabric in the HND fashion-shows. It also indicated that, there are some technical limitations in the local fabrics. The result also indicated that, some of the respondents were not able to identified local African prints from the foreign. In conclusion, the finding threw more light on factors that influenced fabric selection in HND fashion-shows in Takoradi Polytechnic and also provided useful suggestions to guide the use of local fabrics. It was recommended that fabric and garment producers should interact with each other for effective work results. Again local fabric producers should add little to improve upon what is already in the market. Also HND fashion textile students of Takoradi Polytechnic should be made to use local fabric most in fashion-shows and that is the only way departmental goals and objectives would be achieved.
