Academy of Art University at Fashion Week

Recently, my new intern, Akane Ogura and I were invited to attend the Academy of Art University Spring 2011 Collections at Fashion Week in NYC at Lincoln Center. Akane is a recent graduate of the Academy majoring in Illustration, but previously she had studied Fashion Design in Japan. She was the perfect partner for this event.

If you have never been to fashion week in NY or Paris, you cannot believe the hoopla and excitement that surrounds one of this event. Lights, camera, action, flash bulbs snapping and paparazzi moving in packs. And lets not forget "beautiful people" and the hangers on doing their show and tell. You can't help but be caught up in the action.

Every year, The Academy puts on a runway show in one of the tents combining the best student fashion of the year worn by professional models. It had all the glitz and glamour of a Karl Lagerfeld shows. I am including some pictures that we took from close to the catwalk.
