Super Seven: Academy of Art Spring 2011 Collections

First presented at New York Fashion Week, Spring 2011 collections from seven recent graduates of San Francisco-based Academy of Art University deliver fresh silhouettes from rising fashion talents. From Jungah Lee’s sophisticated, yet casual separates to opulently adorned pieces paired with lace from Maria Korovilas, this season’s collections not only display mastery of technique by seven designers at the beginning of their careers, but also add something new to the larger fashion conversation by showing that fashion can still push boundaries while remaining wearable.

Below, we feature one image from each collection, as well as an image from the print collaboration collection, also shown during Fashion Week:

Academy of Art Fashion Show 2009 Recap

We had a blast watching the looks stream down the runway at last Thursday night’s Academy of Art Fashion Show 2009. It was a treat to see all the talent coming from the student designers in the show. We’ve chosen 10 shots to give readers a taste of what we witnessed. To check out all our pics, visit the complete gallery on the SF Indie Fashion Facebook page.
