Exciting New Talent At The Academy Of Art Fashion Show

Earlier this month, I was honored to attend the Academy of Art University Graduate Fashion Show. As the only fashion school to show at New York Fashion Week, I had nothing but high expectations coming in. In addition, I was in attendance with other local fashion bloggers, department store heads and special guests like fashion editor Suzy Menkes and VP of Design at Diane von Furstenberg, Elisa Palomino. I loved reading that all the designers were inspired by anything from David Bowie to hallucinations. The show had an eclectic mix of designs from the graduating class of textile, knitwear, fashion, and jewelry design students. One of my favorite looks was by knitwear designer Young Ae Koo with almost dizzying black and white knit dresses with matching socks. Another designer to look out for is Stephanie Hoffmann, whose deceptively simple striped shift dress with a closer glance revealed that the stripes were actually covered in rhinestones. Take a look at my slideshow to see more of my favorite designs from the show! Photo credit: Randy Brooke
