Imagine students spending countless hours designing the perfect fashion piece to show briefly to potential mentors and possibly begin their career; that’s exactly what happened for the Academy of Art University’s 21st runway showcase in New York.
Students who attended the university from all over the globe created a variety in the fashion showcase that stunned the audience, which contained not only a few stars and several fashion experts, but the showcase was live streamed for the entire world to see. The differences in culture, backgrounds, and personal interests of the students allowed for a unique and spectacular fashion show.
The Academy of Art University has been standing strong in San Francisco since 1929 and offers numerous art degrees with certified and accredited academic programs. Students can engage with a supporting community of peers and professors alike who all have a passion for studying art and design.
Richard S. Stephens, the creative mind who established the university, believed that artists could succeed when given the right tools; these tools are self-discipline and proper education. Thus, he based his establishment around those beliefs which have carried on with new management by his children.
Of course, those beliefs are proved in this fashion show; both the student’s hard work and the time put into learning the building blocks are evident, as each fashion piece is well designed and professional. All of the fashion pieces have their own inspirations behind the such as topography, memories and loss, or different fabrics.
The Academy of Art University has been attending the New York fashion week showcase twice a year since 2005 and the student work has improved with each participation. Part of this could be simply because of the fondness the university has for teaching their students; after all, they have been accredited by several organizations, including the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
Overall, the fashion showcase was a huge success for not only the university, but each individual student. With each showcase participation, new blooming fashion students will show their passion to the world and hope to begin their career.
