Elaine Polvinen, M.F.A., Professor, Fashion Textile Technology
I have been teaching Fashion/Textile Apparel Design in higher education since 1990. My undergraduate educational background is in textile/fiber design. I began to merge traditional and digital textile techniques during my M.F.A. research at R.I.T in 87-89′. Since that point I have been on a steadfast journey first to transfer all my traditional techniques to digital interpretation and then to continually retool and develop new coursework to reflect the transformational changes relating to global technology integration that is taking place in all aspects of the fashion/textile industries. I established this blog to document the transition and expansion from 2D traditional to 2D Digital to 3D virtual for apparel textile product design, development and retailing.
If you are an educator and/or industry research professional and have a 2D/3D apparel/textile product development prototype project that either you or your student(s) created and would like to share with readers of this blog, please contact me at email@example.com
