September is always a special time to be in the Big Apple, especially if you are a fashion enthusiast. It’s the month when the entire fashion fraternity converges to the city for the New York Fashion Week. In tandem with that theme, the Academy of Art University organized a fashion event to showcase some of their outstanding designs. The academy chose the Skylight Clarkson Square as the venue to début new fashion collections by their postgraduate students.
According to the Huffington Post, the designers from the academy wowed the audience with their awe-inspiring collections. America’s Next Top Model, Ms. J Alexander was among the celebrity guests and judges who graced the fashion showcase event by the Academy of Art University.
Promising Artists Discovered
The fashion event was an utter success. By the end of the night, the world had been introduced to some of the most promising talents to watch out for in the lucrative high-end fashion design space. The beautiful and remarkably talented Chinese fashion maestro, Qing Dao was among the most talked about artist that day. Qing Dao marveled the capacity crowd with her surreal concepts. Her fashion designs and collections are surely poised to dominate the fashion show runways for years to come.
Another designer who impressed was Eden Slezin. Eden is an alumnus of the art academy who went on to forge a solid name and reputation in the fashion design world upon graduating.
