The Academy of Art University Takes the Spotlight on the New York Fashion Stage

The 21st runway showcase was presented at the Skylight Clarkson Square in early September 2017. Sponsor, The School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University continued their impressive streak of presenting remarkably talented designers.



Fashion design isn’t the only acclaimed course of study at the San Francisco school, but the School of Fashion took center stage in the middle of the world’s fashion capital. The range of ethnic diversity among the featured designers was remarkable.



It created an array of fashionable inspirations that the audience found extraordinarily impressive. Some designers captured trends in fashion sense, while others displayed works reminiscent of their unique culture. There were recent graduates, talented newcomers to the fashion world.



They were part of the program, releasing their own collections or working in collaboration with others. The Academy of Art University has a strong reputation of producing some of the finest minds in the fashion industry. World-renowned companies like Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Ralph Lauren, frequently hire graduates from the Academy.



A part of the San Francisco design community since 1929, The Academy of Art University models their curriculum to consistently produce graduates who aspire towards innovative creativity. Richard and Clara Stephens founded the school, with an initial class of 45 students learning in a rented loft on Kearny Street in San Francisco.



The current location on Montgomery Street maintains the school’s dedication to excellence, situated adjacent to the San Francisco’s famous Hilton Financial District. Students can select from 22 fascinating programs, most directly focused on design and development careers.



The Academy of Art University offers Associate and Bachelor’s degrees, plus six Masters Programs, three providing graduates with a Master’s of Fashion Arts. All total, there are nearly three dozen degree programs available at the school. Future students at the school will always have a sparkling example to motivate them towards perfection.



The school stormed the New York fashion scene with an electrifying presentation at the Skylight Clarkson Square in New York’s West Soho District. During the week, it was the official home for all things fashion. A building originally for housing and unloading trains was a railway to catapult fashion careers.
