n this paper we explore the effect of late globalization on evolution of industries. Specifically we investigate the impact of late globalization on the evolution and metamorphoses of Danish Textile and Fashion Industry (DTFI). Using historical data, we survey the development of DTFI between 1945 and 2015. In this quest we pursue a number of issues. We explore critical events, impediments or pressures as well as turning points that shaped DTFI; identify main institutional players who enacted various changes in DTFI and how their decisions influenced the evolution of DTFI; and strive to understand the effects of late globalization on DTFI’s size, mission, location, knowledge, growth and structure. With this paper we aim to generate fine-grained, substantive case details that would contribute towards the development of a theory (or theories) of late globalization.
