This is my Jill Wolcott CV 2018 for downloading. Be warned, it is 10 pages.
I put this together in 2010 as part of the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) applying for additional accreditation as a four-year school.
I’m sure there are some things I missed, but mostly, it is a fair overview of my career in fashion and knitwear design, and teaching. I resisted this assignment mightily, and I was in the last group to finally turn in our CVs after the official deadline. It was mind-numbing to put this together!
It was absolutely agonizing to go through all my files, memories, records, etc., to put the initial version together, but since doing it in 2010 I have updated it at least annually, but usually twice a year, before TNNA in January and June. I didn’t do the Jill Wolcott CV 2018 updates until March, 2019, but it feels good to have everything updated. What I learned in putting this together the first time, and updating it as-I-go, is that it is rewarding, and sometimes it will even spur me into action on a variety of things.
If you are interested in tracking my progress as a knitwear designer, this is the paper version of it. It is a little flat, and I would like to make a digital version that has all my work in it. Someday.
