International Textiles And Apparel Association Conference - November 2016

No comments:
Held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, November 8-11, this international conference brought universities from Canada, the USA and all over the world to a symposium: Blending Cultures. There were lectures, workshops, book displays, university program representatives, scholarships and awards, a silent auction of amazing textiles, crafts, clothing, and other treasures, open to bids not only from conference attendees but also members of the public who just happened to hear about this event or be at the hotel and notice the buzz of excitement. I bought a beautiful silk scarf, one of many being sold for $5 to raise money for scholarships. Professor Joan Ellis, Washington State U., who organized the conference, directed me to a huge room full of the most gorgeous creations: dresses, jackets, shoes, necklaces: a wonderland of color, design, fabric, sculptures. You can see the entire collection at 2016 International Textile and Apparel Association Conference. My favorites are below!

Textiles and design fascinate me so I got myself on the mailing list. Wherever the next one is, I want to be there. Travel with a purpose!
