A little part of me is in Italy right now.

The Fifth International Conference on Design Principles and Practices started today. It’s a huge apparel and fashion themes and theories conference, and this year, it’s held at Sapienza University of Rome in Rome, Italy.

And the reason I’m posting about it is because my former professor, Dr. Kathy Mullet, will be presenting my research on hijab style preferences and urban Iranian women there! While I’d love to be there presenting my research, I’m pleased that my work is reaching a broader academic audience.
