The fashion industry is one of the most lucrative business ventures in the world today. Designers anxiously await the moment when their product can be displayed on the most famous runways in the world. New York Fashion week is that platform. Sponsored by the Academy of Art University, the twenty first showcase was held in September, 2017 at the Skylight Clarkson Square. Many new artists and graduates of the University were invited to show their designs. This was of the utmost importance for these new designers as it would be the spark to ignite the fire that would jump start their future in fashion designing. They were also excited that the show could be seen by their family and friends because it was streamed live.
The Academy of Art University invited ten of their recent graduates to participate in the NYFW showcase. These were students who had received either their BFA or MFA from the University. They each brought a uniqueness and broad creativity to the fore front in fashion. These new designers were from very diverse backgrounds. From China to Maine, and many far away destinations in between. They offered fashions in women’s wear and menswear. Their designs went far beyond the imagination, and exceeded the expectations of the viewers and judges. The Academy of Art University provides the world with the best and most creative designers from around the world.
