Academy of Art University Students Propelled into Limelight at NYFW

Few Fashion Schools Have Talent of Academy of Art University

At New York Fashion Week, very few fashion schools can claim to boast the talent that the Academy of Arts University has. Recently, a few of their students’ designs were featured on the runway at New York Fashion Week. New names are launched as people visit NYFW to discover new talents. Recent BFA and MFA graduates debuted their fashion collections in a way that reflects the collaborative effort that has occurred between them.

Designers Are Diverse Just Like Their Fashions

The designers come from around the world. Mainland China, coastal Maine, and everywhere in between represent the destinations where the designers come from. Ms. J Alexander from America’s Next Top Model were among the names of individuals impressed at the event. Hours of labor, and study all culminated in the event, which gave the students an opportunity to show off their work in front of mentors and peers.

The Future of Fashion Is The Inspiration

Much of the work on show at the NYFW is inspired directly from observations of the students. Vinyl, PVC and other fabrics came together to make new concepts. Students were tasked with envisioning the future of fashion, so most chose to take a wild approach to their fashion designs.

Some Students Used Personal Experiences for Design

Some of the designers also drew on personal experience for their inspiration. Dina Lam chose softer materials for her design concept in light of her aunt passing away. This was to convey a “feeling of transition.” Each designer made their own choices on how they wanted to represent events that speak to their experiences with fashion.

Historic School in San Francisco

The Academy of Art University is located right in the heart of San Francisco. Their arts education programs are top notch, and are tailored to the interests of a diverse student body. The school has been operating since 1929. Students can pursue any passion they would like for visual arts, performing arts, or design.
