Once a year the incredible San Francisco based Academy of Art bring their graduate students to New York City to "show their stuff" at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. These designers live in an alternate universe, one where they are not exposed to our New Yorkness and are free to think outside the box and design dresses with matching motorcycle helmets and frame models eyes with face flowers.

The Academy of Art show is one of the most fun Fashion Week shows. Innovative and fun, it is also a chance to look for the next hot designer - the one we will all be talking about in a few years.
