The Academy of Art University Creating Future Designers

When brand new designers show their work at New York Fashion Week you know that you’re seeing someone with a bright future ahead of them. The Academy of Art University was proud to show 10 designers on the runway September 9, 1997. The idea for this showcase was for these designers to show what they saw for the future of fashion. With two menswear lines and three womenswear lines the show seemed full of ideas yet two collaborations were also shown making this 21st show for the Academy of Art University one of the best.

Saya Chen of Beijing, China brought a use of oversized silhouettes to convey her vision of San Francisco and China. Joanna Jadallah and Cana Klebanoff used lightweight wool to make the most amazing, technically gorgeous sweater. The use of the individual strings would keep you guessing for days of how it was put together.

Ryan Yu of Beijing, China used his deeper thoughts and showed a more futuristic design in black and white to convey his vision. Jelly Shan of Zhejiang, China made softer and sweeter designs that expressed her feelings of joy from a trip to China. Dina Marie Yu of Los Angeles, CA used a devastating loss to express her designs. From the Bay Area Eden Slezin showcased how his individuality has affected his designs. Hailin Zhou of Qing Doa, China used a Creative Concepts class to inspire her designs.

The Academy of Art University has been teaching art since 1929 and growing in the beautiful city of San Francisco, California. Proudly this school has represented 112 countries across the globe with it’s students and alumni. The nerve center of creativity continues to expand it’s curriculum.

With NY Fashion Week as one of the most prestigous events in history, the Academy is the first university to be invited to participate with student works. This honor brings talent to their doors in the hopes of one day showing their work at NY Fashion Week.

Artists in all industries look to work with graduates of the Academy of Art University knowing that their education has been exceptional. The list of companies hiring graduates is mind blowing.
