Is It A Miser’S Purse Or A String Purse? Artifact Analysis Of A Vintage Handbag, Sandra Starkey, Jean L. Parsons 2014 University of Missouri

Is It A Miser’S Purse Or A String Purse? Artifact Analysis Of A Vintage Handbag, Sandra Starkey, Jean L. Parsons

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

University historic dress and textile collections frequently hold objects with little or no provenance, and curators and collection managers have limited time to do the extensive research required to firmly date an object, let alone place it into context. This was the case with a purse in the historic costume collection at a large Mid-Western University. The purse is an oblong bag measuring 14” in length when lying flat.

It has been said that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The inspiration for this piece was drawn from my travels to Africa. After a long hot day nothing was more refreshing than drinking soda from a cold glass bottle.

Buttons, these notions have been around since 2000 BC (History, 2009). This design uses buttons for their initial purpose, as decorations, not as fasteners (History, 2009). It was not until 1200 AD that buttons were used as fasteners, and the first buttonhole was introduced (History, 2009).

The first step in this project was to decide the folds and techniques that would be used. Different kinds of origami folds were tested using paper as a medium. In the end, both zigzag and square fold patterns were chosen, and while both are similar, they create different angles for select areas, such as the bust.

This 2-piece eveningwear look was created for a design challenge involving Space and Form. The goal was to engage the negative space around the body while considering silhouette in three dimensions, and to conceive a creative design in monochrome.


Rorschach, Chanel Uskoski 2014 Washingtion State University–Pullman

Rorschach, Chanel Uskoski

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Fashion is more than textiles draped onto a body. It is a tool, a mechanism to convey a selfinterpretation to the world. The question that arises is: Will this self-interpretation be interpreted the same by others? More than likely not. Only an ideal interpreter, an idealistic human being capable of discovering exactly what the self believes and desires to be true, is able to reach the same interpretation.


Closer To Cotton, Megan Wood, Traci Lamar 2014 North Carolina State University

Closer To Cotton, Megan Wood, Traci Lamar

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

After thinking about how cotton, design, textiles, science and technology have intersected with one another in my college experience, I decided to try and incorporate each element into my piece. I started by assessing cotton, the role it’s played in my life, its prevalence at our school, North Carolina’s economy, and in the industry as a whole.

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Riots are one of the most common examples of collective behavior documented throughout our history. Outbreaks of violent behavior have erupted in cities around the world for various reasons ranging from war protest, racial discrimination, and political demonstration.

From the late 19th century onward, a myriad of new retail stores developed within the United States. These establishments provided shoppers, particularly women, assortments of fashion products that helped shape the American culture of consumption. Authors have explored the role that women played as consumers and entry-level saleswomen in department stores in both America and abroad.

America Welcomes The King: The Influence Of King Tut On American Women And Fashion, Sara B. Marcketti, Jong Geun Lee, Katherine Greder, Rachel Charlton-Halweg

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Most fashion history students know of the ‘Egyptomania’ that inspired fashionable dress following the opening of King Tut’s tomb in November 1922 (Mendes & de la Haye, 1999). This paper explores the ways in which the discovery of the young king’s tomb eased anxieties about societal pressures of the time, as well as promoted “original” American design, not dependent upon Paris. Data for this study included analysis of the popular (The New York Times), trade (Women’s Wear), and fashion (Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar) press.


Product Reuse In A Product Development Class, Connie Ulasewicz 2014 San Francisco State University

Product Reuse In A Product Development Class, Connie Ulasewicz

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

In 2010, discarded textile products were estimated at 13.2 million tons, or 5.3% of all municipal solid waste collected by garbage services in the United States (USEPA 2010). With less than 17% recovered, re-used or exported (USEPA, 2010), the time is now, to prepare our students to better understand how to develop products that extend the lifecycle of discarded textiles, to divert them from the landfill as long as possible.


3d Printing For Apparel Design: Exploring Apparel Design Process Using 3d Modeling Software, Lushan Sun, Jean Parsons 2014 University of Missouri

3d Printing For Apparel Design: Exploring Apparel Design Process Using 3d Modeling Software, Lushan Sun, Jean Parsons

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Since the birth of 3D printing technology in 1984, it has long been used mostly for industrial prototyping. As rapid manufacturing technology evolves and becomes more readily available today, the 3D printing technology has advanced into medicine, surgical instruments, music instruments, and even the culinary industry. In the last few years, 3D printing technology is also quickly entering the product customization market to meet consumer’s demand for personalization through development of small-scale 3D printer for personal home use and 3D printing services.


Exploring Patient Centered Care Through The Design Of Personal Storage For Patients, Sandra Starkey, Jean L. Parsons 2014 University of Missouri

Exploring Patient Centered Care Through The Design Of Personal Storage For Patients, Sandra Starkey, Jean L. Parsons

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

An unexpected stay in the hospital can be a traumatic and stressful experience. In addition to the pain and discomfort endured as a result of injury or illness, patients often experience increased stress associated with the healthcare facility itself such as “ delirium, elevated blood pressure, increased need for pain medication and longer hospital stays following surgery” (Ulrich, 1992, p. 20). This stress is counterproductive for both the patient and hospital staff and may be preventable because patient centered design has been shown to counteract negative patient reactions related to the hospital stay (Devlin & Arneill, 2003; Ulrich, 1992).

Zero-Waste Pattern Meets Technology For Marketable & Sustainable Design, Linda Ohrn-Mcdaniel 2014 Kent State University

Zero-Waste Pattern Meets Technology For Marketable & Sustainable Design, Linda Ohrn-Mcdaniel

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

This practice based research paper explores a meeting between technology and craft through a zero waste collection to be marketed and sold in a bridge market retail store. By creating an end goal of a marketable and reproducible collection the sustainability factor became very important yet also a great challenge. Zero waste patterns naturally challenge the designer as there is required pattern knowledge that is the foundation of the design process. When designing with a zero waste approach the designer needs to be flexible taking into account thinking about construction, grain and pattern shapes to be able to create a ...
