The New York Fashion Week has proven to be monumental in the world of fashion and is responsible for shedding light on some of the hottest, modern day talent. Although original and excellent talent can be hard to come by, they have managed to pull it off a record breaking 21 times, each and every year the week has commenced. The Academy of Art University‘s fashion department was responsible for hosting the runway show this year, which took place in Clarkson Square, where everything stylish resided for this spectacular week. Along with two collaborative pieces, the students presented 5 separate womenswear collections and also graced the runway with two outstanding men’s collections. The designers were a diverse group of individuals from across the globe, who came together in a beautiful coexistence to help put on a runway show of a lifetime. The wide variety of creativity, technique, and undeniable mastering of craft was obvious among these young fashion connoisseurs and left the audience excited and begging for more. After years of study, toil, and hard work; these few moments of runway time would change and benefit these budding designers careers in ways they never thought or imagined. They not only displayed their raw talent to their future career partners, but also to their friends, families, and the world.
The Academy of Art University has been happily tucked into its home city of San Francisco for over 80 years. It begun in 1929, and has since been dedicated to developing and facilitating artistic endeavor and creative minds in success. The university is closely linked with the city of San Fran in which it resides, as it has utilized the city, as a pool of abundant inspiration. Many great minds have come out of this quaint place, giving the Academy of Art University much opportunity to gain innovative and “out of the box” thinkers that couldn’t have come from anywhere else. This year, the University was proud to be the main component to the New York Week of Fashion and took the opportunity to proudly flaunt the overflowing amount of talent and ability it has to offer.
