The Academy of Art University is one institute that makes it presence known each and every year. This San Francisco-based school specializes in preparing its students in communication, in design and in the arts.

Academy of Art University introduced five womenswear collections, introduced two menswear collections as well as introduced two collaborations.
This institute has been coming here for many years, and 2017 made it the school’s 21st appearance in a row. Skylight Clarkson Center was rocking and rolling from all of the activities. There were a wide range of shapes, silhouettes and techniques that were used on every piece of fashion attire. The audience here was mesmerized with all of the eclectic styles. The Academy of Art University was represented by 10 of its very own MFA and BFA graduates. including Eden Slezin, Hallun Zhou, Dina Marie Lam, Saya Shen and many more. The amount of hard work that goes into a showcase is mind-blowing to some degree. For all of this extremely hard work, each fashion designer will get 15 minutes to strut their stuff.
The Academy of Art University has a wide range of programs to choose from during the aspiration process. The school offer graduate degrees, offer undergraduate degrees, offer certificates and offer much more.
