The Academy of Art University, School of Fashion, is ever-changing with the diversity of its students creative minds. September 9, 2017, the Skylight Clarkson Square, was home to the School of Fashion’s 21st annual runway showcase. This particular season of fashion was even more exciting than ever, due to the ten most recent BFA and MFA graduates were showcasing and debuting their newest women’s and menswear collections– bringing two collaborations with them.
All the prospective designers come from diverse backgrounds. That is what is so dynamic about watching how they work so well together. Designers from the mainland of China, to the coastal states of Maine, USA, and many other places that are in-between. Each of their fashion ideas, craftsmanship of abilities, had the audience impressed and begging for more.
Each of the graduating designers have worked so hard in their prospective classrooms, workshops, and internships, all for the chance to have someone from the world of fashion take notice of their abilities and choose to mentor them for a career in fashion. These fifteen minutes of “fame” means the world to each one of the up and coming designers presenting their designs on the runway.
The Academy of Art University has called San Francisco home since 1929, the Academy has been the “vanguard” for its students creativity and innovation. San Francisco and the Academy of Art University (http://www.fashionschooldaily.com/)have served together mutually supplying inspiration for all the talented students that enroll each year.
