Annie Temmink

Annie Temmink ’11, who double majored in art and math, spent her post-graduate year exploring fashion and textiles thanks to the Watson Fellowship she received senior year. In Indonesia, Japan, India, Uganda, and Tanzania, Temmink experienced clothing from the world’s most rural villages to high fashion in its largest cities. Her hands-on work spanned from preparation of organic homemade dyes to visiting mass brand-name producing factories. Now in the not-for-profit world, Temmink is an “upcycling expert” for Goodwill Industries, where she transforms repurposed clothing into new fashions, accessories, and art.
