International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

The idea for the kaftan-like garment, titled Striped Robe, is the result of a presentation given by the designers at Duke University’s Nasher Museum in Durham NC, in conjunction with “Collecting Matisse and Modern Masters: The Cone sisters of Baltimore”. In fall of 2012, the codesigners were invited to give a presentation on the relationship between textile heiresses Claribel and Etta Cone, and the sisters’ patronage of Matisse and other emerging artists during the first half of the twentieth century.

A Survey Of Current Consumer Technology Use For Apparel Shopping, Tasha L. Lewis

International Textile and Apparel Association (ITAA) Annual Conference Proceedings

Over the last decade, as e-commerce has grown, researchers have found different shopper motivations for online clothing purchases. Watchravesringkan and Shim (2003) found that shoppers who intended to search the Internet for product information were also more likely to make an online purchase. Goldsmith and Flynn (2004) identified the level of a consumer’s Internet innovativeness as a key motivator of online purchasing, followed by a consumer’s experience with catalogue shopping. However, Kwon & Noh (2010) found that Internet experience was not a strong influence on online apparel purchase intent for mature consumers, but rather their perceived benefits from products ...
