CDMC Conversation Series: Annette Becker
From Katie Apsey on February 16th, 2021
Annette Becker is a fashion historian and arts educator whose work focuses on accessible material culture studies. She currently serves as the director of the Texas Fashion Collection (TFC), which is part of the University of North Texas’s College of Visual Arts & Design. In that role, Becker stewards a collection of nearly 20,000 historic and designer garments and accessories spanning over 250 years of fashion history. Becker was in conversation with Tania Kolarik, a PhD Candidate in Art History at UW-Madison, and discussed the ways the TFC engages design and material culture research before she gave a brief tour of the collection storage space.
