Jewelry designer Tamar Navama ('15 M.F.A.) had one of her most interesting career experiences this fall -- creating pieces for Naadam Cashmere clothes that appeared on the runway for New York Fashion Week.
"My best moments as a designer are seeing how people wear and style my designs," Navama says. "To see it done professionally on a stage in New York was an especially satisfying moment."
Navama also has experimented with creating leather goods from exotic skins, which she treats as precious materials -- innovation she honed in her years at UNT.
"My professors created a challenging environment that developed my confidence as a maker," she says. "And raised my own expectations for my work."
