2016 INTERNATIONAL TEXTILE, CLOTHING & DESIGN CONFERENCE – Magic World of Textiles October 02 nd to 05 th 2016, DUBROVNIK, CROATIA publication description SECTION F: DESIGN AND MARKETING OF TEXTILE AND CLOTHING Abstract: Clothing and footwear, as well as food and beverages expenditures, can be regarded as essential consumption of the population. This consumption is almost symbiotically connected to the height, structure and the direction of movement of the household income on the national level. The intensity and dynamics of this interdependence in consumption and income vary in different world's economies, which can also be applied for Croatia. Since the consumption and income dependence of these two groups of civilization products are defined by Engel's law, this paper aimed at economically examining their functioning in our society. The paper also deals with quantifying the income elasticity of clothing and footwear consumption in a household. The comparative analysis of income elasticity coefficients will be carried out in order to identify the tendency of commonalities or differences in the intensity and the structure of food and beverages consumption, as the second most essential products group considering the same income level.
