Fashion Professor to Release "Fashion Design, Referenced" Fall 2012
Emily Banis Stoehrer is the Program Director and Assistant Professor of the Fashion Design and Merchandising program at Fisher College. Professor Banis Stoehrer earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and her Masters in Fashion and Textile Studies from the Fashion Institute of Technology. As a trained fashion and textile historian, she worked as a Curatorial Research Associate at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston before joining Fisher College in 2010. Professor Banis Stoehrer writes a fashion column for Exhale, a local lifestyle magazine, and has contributed to Adornment, Art Jewelry Forum, and the Textile Society of America Newsletter.
Prof. Banis Stoehrer co-authored Fashion Design, Referenced with Alicia Kennedy. The comprehensive fashion guide is decorated with over 1,000 photographs and drawings compiled into four central categories that depict fashion design through the history of art and industry. Fashion Design, Referenced is broken down into the categories of: Fundamentals, Principles, Dissemination, and Practice, which cover what fashion design is, what the future holds, and everything in between.
"We are extraordinarily proud of Emily's accomplishments in the Fashion Design and Merchandising program here at Fisher College," states Dr. Thomas M. McGovern, President. "Her first book, Fashion Design, Referenced, is sure to be a success, and we support her and look forward to its release this fall."
