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.

Waterfall was inspired by the dynamism, physical strength and apparent weightlessness of falling water. The purpose of this design was to research the combined use of digital technologies and traditional textile and apparel design techniques. Waterfall combines flat pattern drafting and hand draping with hand-painting, computer aided design and digital printing to create an engineered print design.
