Fashion Designers become famous during New York Fashion Week through their unique and fascinating designs that are displayed during that time. Every so often a new gem is discovered during the social event. The last 21 shows have resulted in that. It has been a stunning last 21 seasons.

 

The Academy of Art University at the New York Fashion Week celebrated that 21st season this past September 9th, 2017. It was hosted at Skylight Clarkson Square. This central location for fashion discovery displayed ten newcomers who stunned the audience. Each person had their own unique touch on a common theme that season. While this is not always the way the week is approached, this one had a theme that was a smashing hit with those in attendance. The diversity was wonderful and the collections were a nice contribution to this year’s show.

 

Some guests in attendance are listed here below.

The graduate showcase was chosen for the CFDA Elaine Gold LaunchPad. All types of varied mediums were used for the new creations. It was a delight to the senses. The Academy of Art University, which was once called the Academy of Art College, offers this each year. It’s a way for students to gain insight on what they have created and make adjustments as they wish. It’s also a way that many people are discovered, as it were.
