A fashion show was held on September 9, 2017. This wasn’t an average fashion show. It was one run by students at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. This particular fashion show was held at Skylight Clarkson Square, where these gifted graduated were able to showcase all their hard work from everything they have studied at the university. It seems that their hard work and all their study and practice had paid off quite well for these graduate students.
Established in 1929, Academy of Art University has catered to all kinds of art students from just about every field of art ranging from traditional art practices to television broadcasting, to fashion design. This university draws students from all over the country, as well as from countries all over the world. Here they study in both the classroom and in online courses. All of these courses are taught by professions who work in the fields which they teach. The students at this university don’t just study their chosen craft, they also are able to develop a professional quality portfolio of their best work.
These fashion students, upon graduation, put everything they have worked toward into a fashion show. Hailing from different parts of the country as well as from countries like China, these graduate students know how to shine as they put their own deigns on display. Their designs certainly impressed the members of the audience at the fashion show. Even some high ranking audience members such as Ms. J Alexander of America’s Next Top Model fame, and the Director of Education and Professional Development at CFDA, Sara Kozlowski, were quite impressed with the work of these graduate students.
Some of the students whose designs were on display in this show include, Hailun Zhou from Qing Dao, China, Eden Slezin from the Bay Area, Dina Marie Lam from Los Angeles, California, and Carlos Rodriguez from Clarksburg, California, among many others. These students have earned MFA’s and BFA’s in Fashion Design. While their designs seem out there and futuristic, they clearly show what the fashion program at this university is all about. Congratulations to all of the graduate students who participated, for putting on a great fashion show and for displaying their best work and unique designs.
