Outerwear—Inner Musings: A Theoretical Framework Application For Creative Scholarship, Charles Freeman, Lisa Mcroberts, Chelsea Bell, Li-Fen Anny Chang, Marian O'Rouke-Kaplan, Janie Stidham, Melanie Carrico

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Scholarship in design, namely clothing and textiles, is based in practice and research. Dire concerns and consequences face academics deciding to undertake creative production as a scholarship track, namely promotion and tenure. With a profession centered on creative practice, efforts to better define and document methodological rigor for creative scholarship must be made, in order to increase knowledge dissemination across the discipline. Studies in information systems design-science theory application indicate various guidelines for undertaking creative practice as design-science (Hevner et al., 2004).

Teens are important and influential consumers with an estimated 32 million teens in the United States, spending over $172 billion per year (Bachlet & Crozier, 2012).

College Students’ Responses To Prosocial Marketing Claims On Apparel Hang Tags, Karen H. Hyllegard, Jennifer Paff Ogle, Ruoh-Nan Yan

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

In recent years, it has become increasingly common for apparel companies to include prosocial marketing claims on product hang tags. Such claims have addressed environmentallysound production practices, fair labor/fair trade initiatives, and/or monetary contributions to charitable causes. However, research provides only limited understanding of the benefits to consumers and/or apparel companies derived from including prosocial marketing claims on apparel hang tags. As such, the purpose of this study was to explore consumers’ responses to prosocial marketing claims placed on apparel hang tags.

In later decades, magazines addressed changing gender roles and advertised products that assisted in domestic duties (Walker, 2000).
