(Denver, June 2015)  Dr. Julianne Attmann, Fashion Director, and Jeannie Schuberth, Fashion Design instructor, at The Art Institute of Colorado, had their abstracts accepted for the 2015 ITAA (International Textile and Apparel Association) Conference.  ITAA is an important professional organization for research and education in the fashion field.

Their abstract, BAM! SPLAT! ZING! Fashion Design Students Empower Critically Ill Children by Arming Them with Superhero Capes, was evaluated and accepted for the 2015 ITAA Annual Conference to be held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, November 9-13, 2015. 

The abstract outlines a course project that charged students with designing superhero capes for critically ill children, in partnership with There With Care, a national non-profit organization that provides emotional, psychological and practical support services for families with children facing critical illness.

The project required that students understand and engage in the entire design process, including research, concept development, patternmaking, prototype development, and production after evaluation and approval from the client.
