NYFW : Academy of Art University

Academy Of Art University Fall 2014 Collections - Runway

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.

Love, Your Absent Valentine

20140214-091940.jpg

Well, hello! First of all, serious props to anyone who just clicked on a link to come here. I know it can be off-putting when a blogger disappears for a while, so thanks for coming back!

It really does feel like months since I’ve posted, although I know it’s only been a few weeks. This blog has been such a big part of my life that it feels downright weird to have put it on hold. But I’ve had a good reason, I promise!

Last week, I started a new job, and it’s been absolutely fantastic. I cancelled my trip to NYFW so that I could start right away, and I’ve been going a million miles an hour ever since. It’s in the publishing industry, which you guys know has been a dream of mine for ages (seriously, I need to Instagram the absurd amount of magazines taking over our apartment).

So, it’s been a steep learning curve to adjust my schedule and flow of my day, but it already feels much smoother. I have some fun posts planned for next week, and it feels good to be back in the game 🙂

So, my lovely Valentines, thanks for reading and rocking out. I love you!
