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.

The inspiration for my outfit came from two different myths. The first myth came from the movie Thor that was based off of old Norse mythology. The costume for the character Loki mirrored his complex history and character with strips of leather crisscrossing each other. His costume was highlighted with plated of gold and bronze armor embellished with images such as his son, the great wolf Fenrir.
