Fashion is an ever-changing field. With each new season, the most inventive and imaginative come together to show their vision of what men and women will be wearing in the future.
University Showcases Talent
On September 9, 2017, the Skylight Clarkson Square hosted the 21st runway showcase of the School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University. Ten Bachelor of Fine Arts and ten Master of Fine Arts graduates showed their finest. Between them, they showed five collections in womenswear and two of menswear. There were two collaborations to produce their designs in the debut.
The show was exciting with diversity in cultures and backgrounds of the designers. From China to Maine, and all places between, ideas, styles, designs, and silhouettes merged with unique and diverse craftsmanship. The audience was impressed with the innovative fashion that was paraded down the runway.
The graduate designers spent hours in workships, internships and with last-minute changes to their designs before their Worhol-inspired fifteen minutes of fame on the runway. Though the behind-the-scenes time was intense, it was all well worth it to both the graduates and the audience when the latter was able to share their vision with all in attendance.
This year’s show included big names in the fashion industry including Ms. J. Alexander and Sara Kozlowski of America’s Next Top Model and the Director of Education and Professional Development at CFDA, respectively. The guest stars were as impressed as the general audience.
The Academy of Art has been a bastian of artistic vision and talent since 1929 when they opened their doors in San Francisco. Each year the students and faculty merge together to develop innovative and imaginative new ideas to present in the world of performance, directing, visual, and architecture and automative restoration.
The academy offers both online and campus studies for a variety of degree plans included in their curriculum. This new method of offering options to students has opened up the university to an even greater number of students which equates to a greater number of visions and unique perspectives.
