The Art Institutes Fall 2014 fashion show is one of only two shows during Fashion Week that includes alumni designs. The Art Institutes system of schools accepted applicants from the ten largest fashion design programs across its North American system of more than 50 schools. Thirteen student and alumni designers were selected to present their Fall 2014 capsule collections during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, which will be held at Lincoln Center in New York City February 6-13, 2014.
The Art Institutes Fall 2014 show may just be the most diverse group show assembled for Fashion Week. A former Marine, a carpenter and an architect are three of this season's standouts, all of whom switched careers to pursue their true passions at Art Institutes schools.
Gustavo Alonso, Luis Aponte, Joshuan Aponte, Lauren Barisic, Lorena Cabrera, Anna Charest, Samuel Ciccone, Michael Doyle, Ryan Edmonds, German Madrigal, Christopher Maracha, Rei Yamamoto and Simone Young will have the extraordinary opportunity to present their collections alongside fashion industry legends.
"A talented group of fashion industry professionals generously provided their expertise to select the thirteen designers who will be a part of The Art Institutes Fall 2014 show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week," said Charles Restivo, Interim President of The Art Institutes. "We are excited to present a show that highlights the exceptional talent and creativity The Art Institutes students and alumni offer."
Each season, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City captures the world's attention as more than 250 designers showcase their collections and unveil the upcoming season's trends at star-studded presentations and runway shows under the famed Lincoln Center tents.
This incredible opportunity will give the talented students and alumni of The Art Institutes the chance to present their looks to an international audience and get a glimpse of what it takes to market themselves and their designs to potential clients and buyers. Their collections will include both women's and men's sportswear and eveningwear, showing the culmination of techniques learned in the classroom and brought to life by the range, vision and creativity of the young designers.
The Art Institutes is a system of more than 50 schools located throughout North America. The Art Institutes schools provide an important source of education for design, media arts, fashion and culinary professionals. Several institutions included in The Art Institutes system are campuses of South University or Argosy University.
