Fashion is about the new, the exciting and the unique. New York Fashion Week collections by graduates from the Academy of Art University showed all these qualities in daring, vibrant pieces. Each of the ten designers created individual work, with some collaborations between BFA and MFA graduates. There was a sense of solidarity and collectivity between the Academy of Art University in their NYFW presentation.
The Academy of Art University, based in San Francisco, has a diverse student body and this is represented in the NYFW collection. Designers showcasing their work with the Academy of Art University came from the Atlantic coast of Maine, mainland China and other global locations. Studying in California at the Academy of Art University, these graduates achieved a sense of unity that represented their diverse points of origin and their travels in the world of fashion.
The Academy of Art University is the largest private art and design school in the U.S., with over 12,000 students enrolled and nearly 300 full-time faculty. Over 1,000 part-time faculty members also bring their expertise and experience to the academic community. The large and diverse student and faculty add to the exciting collaboration possibilities that were on show at New York Fashion Week.
The New York Fashion Week collections showed how the graduates of Academy of Art University are combining and learning cutting-edge techniqes and concepts in their design work. The collections of menswear and womenswear on display had interesting, exciting textures and silhouettes to the outfits. Academy of Art University designers used intricate knitwear, black-and-white geometric designs, and a wide range of inspiration from castle architecture to ocean waves. The varied inspirations are reflected in the history and present of Academy of Art University, which has been a San Francisco institution since 1929. The university, like its graduates, draws together American and international perspectives and ideas, in a contemporary, envelope-pushing academic environment of adventure and collaboration.
