She currently serves as the director of the Texas Fashion Collection (TFC), which is part of the University of North Texas’s College of Visual Arts & Design. In that role, Becker stewards a collection of nearly 20,000 historic and designer garments and accessories spanning over 250 years of fashion history.

Becker was in conversation with Tania Kolarik, a PhD Candidate in Art History at UW-Madison, and discussed the ways the TFC engages design and material culture research before she gave a brief tour of the collection storage space.

Event was free and open to the public thanks to the support of The Anonymous Fund.
