Students from this University travel to New York City each year for Fashion Week and this year, a number of recent graduates brought their designs to the runway to showcase all that they have learned.
This year’s Fashion Week in NYC was the Academy of Art University’s twenty-first show that they participated in. Their show took place at the Skylight Clarkson Square venue this year and showcased were five women’s fashion designs, two men’s designs and two more collaborations. Ten students in total participated in creating these designs and they all earned a degree in either a bachelor’s degree of fashion or a master’s degree in fashion. People in attendance were impressed with what these young designers had to show.
The melting pot of students at the Academy of Art University makes this such a diverse school with so many different cultures and talents.
