I am Jennifer Elaine Stanley, Teaching Fellow and MFA student in the department of Design with a concentration in Fashion Design and Creative Technology at the University of North Texas. I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Fashion Design and Multicultural Women’s and Gender Studies from Texas Woman’s University.
As a designer, I am inspired and motivated by social issues and women’s rights for my creations. I am a domestic violence survivor and have completed designs to raise awareness for victims.
In my teaching experience, I have expertise instructing design construction, pattern making for fashion design, draping, sustainable design, and foundational art courses. As an instructor I focus on teaching industry standards of product development while maintaining a diverse and inclusive classroom environment.
My research topics include investigating laser cutting, textile printing, virtual reality systems, and identifiable characteristics of wearable technology. My professional goals include practical application of these subjects in the fashion design classroom.
