NY Fashion Week The Academy of Art University

New York Fashion Week. While many designers are familiar faces in the tents at Bryant Park, there are some who have never before displayed their work in such a high-profile setting. This is especially true of the Academy of Art University show, which showcases the creations of select recent graduates (a distinction that no other fashion school can claim). The excitement in the tent was palpable as the students’ friends and family came to cheer on these newly-minted designers.

Of course, as students, they don’t have the same resources available to them as say, a major label, so the collections were modest in size. Focusing primarily on Womenswear (although there were two Menswear shows), each collection ranged from five to eight outfits. The students’ innovation was impressive: textile designer Jun Ryu experimented with faux fur by literally burning patterns into it for his menswear collection; textile designer Ivanka Georgiev magically transformed paper into luxurious garments for the collection of designer Soo Jung Sung.
