The Academy of Art University and more specifically, The School of Fashion, is pleased to publish the introduction of FW/19 and SS/19 collections at New York Fashion Week with Pier 59 Studios. The runway exhibit will debut a new rank of designers, giving a stage to showcase their determination, talent and hard work through the internationally esteemed fashion week.
The School of Fashion has shown collections designed by recent graduates and select students throughout New York Fashion Week since 2015. This time, seventeen creators from the programs of the Master of Fine Arts will display an overall of two menswear and eleven womenswear collections; of the thirteen collections, three were made using collaborations in knitwear, fashion and textile design.
The sets will launch at 8 PM on Saturday, September 8th with Pier 59 Studios. The 2019 works will be observed by an audience of international and national media, fashion industry recruiters, executives and associate designers.
This will be the first period that the School of Fashion is going to host a two-day exhibit in New York as well, enabling industry professionals to see the designers’ portfolios and collections close up and to join the creators in person. The display is going to be on Monday, September 10th and Tuesday, September 11th, through 9 AM – 7 PM at Kimball Studio.
Executive Director of the School of Fashion, Simon Ungless, had this to say:
“The works reveal the designers’ talents to explore their own spirit while mastering the craft. They have esteemed the heart of our vocation and carry conscientious disciplines into three-dimensional design, textile design, construction and tailoring techniques. Simultaneously, they have skillfully integrated the application of sustainable concepts and technology into their products. It was a delight for every one of us at the School of Fashion to guide them through their fashion instruction, both online and onsite. We are looking forward to seeing them shape their careers in the industry.”
