International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The first national meeting of textile and clothing professors took place in Madison, Wisconsin in June 1959. With a mission to advance excellence in education, scholarship and innovation, and their global applications, the International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) is a professional and educational association of scholars, educators, and students in the textile, apparel, and merchandising disciplines in higher education.

This site provides free, public access to the ITAA annual conference proceedings beginning in 2015. Previous proceedings can be found by following the "Additional ITAA Proceedings" link on the left sidebar of this page.

Abstract

As a scholar working in specialized fields and attending content-specific conferences it is easy to overlook the importance of explaining how you get to the design, oral research paper, published abstract, pedagogical presentation, audition, or performance. Not all areas of academia approach research in the same way; it is my responsibility as a professor to justify the design research and validate the process used in order to get to work that is considered commendable within my field of study. I have made creative contributions to my discipline and have presented and published these innovative ventures in artistic and academic settings. Inspired by specific time periods, steampunk subcultures, and creative themes, I have designed garments that have been awarded places in gallery exhibits and on the runway.
