Academy of Art University's School of Fashion | Fall 2012 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center

Academy of Art University's School of Fashion | Fall 2012 Collections | Exclusive Preview

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center | Friday, February 10th at 8:00 PM

Design by M.F.A. Fashion Design Graduate – Amy Bond from Utah.

[San Francisco, CA], February 3, 2012 - Since 2005, the School of Fashion has premiered the collections of recent graduates during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.

"Part of our commitment to the designers is to help launch their careers and have their collections seen by as many industry professionals as possible," said Dr. Elisa Stephens, President of Academy of Art University. "Debuting their collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center is an incredible opportunity, especially since the national and international fashion community are gathered in New York City during that time."

For the Fall 2012 show, there will be eight women's wear collections and one men's wear collection. Two of the women's wear designers this season, Amy Bond and Farida Khan, received their M.F.A. in Fashion Design through Academy of Art University's Online Fashion Program.

This season, two M.F.A. Fashion Design students who completed their degrees in the Online Fashion Program at Academy of Art University will present their collections.

Amy Bond was born in Pocatello, Idaho, and grew up in Texas, Illinois, & Pennsylvania. She graduated from Stephens College with a B.A. in Fashion Design and worked as an assistant designer at St. Pucchi in Los Angeles, before starting her own clothing line in 1999. She completed her M.F.A. in Fashion Design through the Academy of Art University's Online Fashion Program. Amy was inspired by complex shapes and construction - but strove to make the complexities appear clean and minimal. She used fabrics that would bring light and movement to the collection, including silk georgette, silk charmeuse, and Schoeller-Aeroshell, a lightweight, breathable and water repellent fabric often used in aerobic sports activities.

Farida Khan was born in Pakistan and now lives in Doha, Qatar. She received a Higher National Diploma in Fashion Design from Edexcel BTEC and completed her M.F.A. in Fashion Design through the Academy of Art University's Online Fashion Program. She honed her design skills working as an assistant designer at Ali Khan and as a technical designer at the Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar. For her collection, Farida was inspired by the idea of unconventional beauty. She constructed bold silhouettes using wool, cotton, coated denim, polyurethane, and punched leather.
