Brittany Dickinson is a designer with a decade of experience in the fashion industry. She holds a Master of Arts in Design Research, Writing and Criticism from the School of Visual Arts and a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. Brittany is passionate about changing the conversation about fashion from the ground up — from education to professional practice. Systems thinking, disruptive design, and social engagement serve as the backbone for her teaching. She believes designers have a responsibility to consider the full lifecycle of their creations by addressing the social and environmental implications of every step of the design process, from sourcing to end of use. Brittany currently divides her time between teaching at Parsons and consulting for FABSCRAP, a non-profit textile recycling organization.
