Fashion school, Academy of Art University has been invited back to fashion week over and over again. They showcase a number of their top students who have the best ideas, best designs and best styles. Each year, those individuals are brought to New York to participate in the fashion week. Located at the Skylight Clarkson Square, the actual home for the fashion week is held here year after year.
For this last season, fashion week debuted 10 graduates from the Academy of Art University. These individuals brought five womenswear collections along with 2 mens collections and they collaborated on 2 collections as a group.
The designers who were selected to participate in fashion week come from all backgrounds and locations. Some of them come from China, some from Maine and some from anywhere in between. Each year the people who attend fashion week are harder and harder to impress. This reason alone is why most designers want to be showcased during fashion week.
One person who sits in the audience and judges everything from simple to complex designs and is hard to impress is Ms. J Alexander from the show America’s Next Top Model. All designers work on their pieces for weeks and weeks preparing for the show. All of that work goes into the 15 minutes of runway that they get.
All the models and designers hope to walk the runway to be noticed by someone in the audience who will see their designs and want to feature them in their own collections. To be invited to major designers is at the forefront of all designers who participate in Fashion Week.
The Academy of Art University was first established in 1929 and has grown immensely since opening the doors. They hold the largest partial of land in all of San Francisco. There are a large number of people who work for the school either in part time positions or in full time positions. Each year there is more than 12,000 individuals who take classes at the school.
