Yeonhee Cheong, graduate student in Design Studies, has been selected the winner of a very prestigious competition at the International Textile and Apparel Association Conference held in Santa Fe, NM, November 9-13. Yeonhee’s three-piece suit, Memento Mori Sewol (pictured), has been awarded the ATEXINC -Apparel and Textile Education Xchange Award for excellence in Marketable Textile Design – Graduate Student Level.
