It’s no secret that fashion students are a great source for unique, creative fashion that you won’t find anywhere else. The problem? Their work is rarely available in traditional retail settings. Changing all that – and making it easier for all of us to access all kinds of items by emerging design talents – is the recently-opened Atelier from the Academy of Art University.
Occupying the gallery space that has long piqued the interest of passersby on New Montgomery Street in downtown San Francisco, the gallery-slash-shop houses apparel, accessories, jewelry, fine art, gifts and items for the home by current students and alumni. Among the current offerings are apparel by gr.dano and Camilla Olson, men’s denim by GRP-E Denim, kid’s clothing by J-dorable and jewelry by Lynn Christiansen and Mike Feeney.
Students apply to display and sell their work in the space’s coveted spots, so what you see on view is a curated collection of items showcasing some of the best work coming out of the school.
Want to see it for yourself? Stop by Atelier, 79 New Montgomery St., Mon-Fri 10am-6pm; Sat 10am-5pm.
