UNT CVAD Welcomes Barbara Trippeer, Assistant Professor of Fashion Design
The Department of Design is pleased to announce that Barbara Trippeer will join the CVAD faculty and the Fashion Design Program this fall. She had been working as an Assistant Professor of Fashion Design at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, where two of her students recently were recognized as “The Future of Fashion” by the CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America).
Barbara’s professional experience has been in product lifecycle development of contemporary sportswear, womenswear, and childrenswear, with sourcing and production in both the domestic and international markets.
As part of her academic research agenda, Barbara is focused on exploring emerging technology, sustainability, inclusive design, and fashion as adaptive clothing or as an “assistive technology” to aid individuals living with a disability.
Barbara earned her BFA in Fashion Design at The Parsons The New School of Design in Paris and her MFA in Design Research from the University of North Texas.
Please join us in welcoming Barbara to our CVAD community!
