New York Fashion Week is the place that allows new names in the industry to be featured and shown off to the world. The School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University just had its 21st runway show at Skylight Clarkson Square. The showcase took place on September 9th, 2017 and ten of the most recent graduates had the opportunity to debut seven collections of women and menswear to some of the most important people in fashion.
The designers all come from diverse backgrounds, which makes their collection one of the most unique around. There was a variety of ideas, techniques used for craftsmanship, and silhouettes that blew the audience away. Some of the noted audience members were Ms. J Alexander from America’s Next Top Model, as well as Sara Kozlowski from CFDA. The students were more than excited to have all of their hard work pay off as they showed their work off to their peers and potential career connections for the future.
