BOAST of the week:

Knock it Off: Book Presentation and Signing

Dr. Jean Parsons, Associate Professor in Textile and Apparel Management, is co-author with Sara B. Marcketti, of Iowa State University, of "Knock it Off: A History of Design Piracy in the US Women’s Ready-to-Wear Apparel Industry." The intersection of women’s fashion and big business in the U.S. has always been a compelling study across social strata. Parsons is the curator of the Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection. The book is a history of the U.S. apparel industry as it developed its own unique design voice and the story of how design piracy formed the often controversial basis for industry growth.

A book signing will be held on June 22 in Gwynn Lounge.
