I know what you’re thinking- gee, Sarah, NY fashion week ended like… a week ago. Are we in a time warp?
Well, my friends, I believe in the merits of “better late than never,” and when runway collections are this fantastic, seeing them is well worth the wait.
I was originally scheduled to attend this show when I planned to go to fashion week, and I was super bummed that I couldn’t make it. But seeing the images and video is definitely the next best thing (and I can do it all from the comfort and the warmth of the west coast!).
Academy of Art University is one of the true highlights of the Bay Area fashion scene. Throughout my time living here, I’ve worked with them as a model/guinea pig for photographers, runway walker, and most recently as an avid consumer of the creative, fresh designs that are the students’ signature.
Showing at Lincoln Center is no small feat, but these designs stood up to the grandeur. Although I could see myself incorporating elements of each designer’s work into my own repertoire, I especially fell for Earnest Huang and Hong Ni’s cool-girl brights and swingy dresses.
