"We are committed to helping our students launch their careers, and we are thrilled to give them the platform to present their work to fashion industry professionals," said Dr. Elisa Stephens, President of Academy of Art University. "It is an incredible opportunity for our student designers to debut their collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week."

"This group of designers focused on transformation," said Simon Ungless, Executive Director of the School of Fashion. "They used fabric manipulation and printing techniques to change the inherent qualities of textiles to create new textures and surface qualities. There is a focus back to the body and wearability in silhouette, which the designers have utilized advanced tailoring techniques to achieve."
