Watch Academy of Art New York Fashion Week Show Live

San Francisco’s Academy of Art University has the distinction of being the only school to show each and every New York Fashion Week, and latest show takes place Friday night. The best part? You can view it live online for free.

At 5 p.m. (thanks AAU for the perfect early happy hour timing), select Spring 2012 graduate collections will hit the runway. The four women’s wear collections and three men’s wear collections include work from students Meredith Action, David Doerr, Dipti Irla, Lisa Nguyen, Jen Chen, Juhyun Vivi Park and Sun Young Youn.

Feeling nostalgic? You can also view past Academy of Art fashion shows on the same page.

Video: Origami Wins at Beauty Expo Style Competition

To go from the shower to runway-ready in anything less than an hour should be declared an art. But the six teams in the SFFMA’s recent Beauty Expo Style Competition had just 30 minutes to create high-drama looks.

When the time was up, Sophia Guerra and Kelli Eng from Rockridge’s Lucero Hair Salon took home a cash prize with their Japanese street style-inspired look, complete with origami paper cranes they folded on the ride over.

The competition was just one element of the four-hour event from the San Francisco Fashion Merchants Alliance. Hosted by Pigment Cosmetics on Saturday, May 28, the evening also included opportunities to connect with local fashion bloggers and attend a model boot-camp session with veteran model coach Charleston Pierce.
