The School of Fashion, based at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco,
California is an innovative school. The school this year marked the twenty-first time that
their students were able to showcase their fashions in New York at the Fashion week.
Showing their fashions is a dream come true for these students. It is a time when they
are able to work hard and show their fashions to their peers and to the world. It may even
be that some new names will pop up in the fashion world due to this great Fashion week.
These students labor hard, and they come from many different parts of the world to
be able to show their creativity and their creations. This is where they get the chance
to walk down the “catwalk” for their fifteen minutes of fame.
The Academy of Arts University is located in San Francisco since its founding in 1929.
It has the same message today as it did in the year it was founded. It is a place that helps,
and inspires and pushes the student to learn. Here these fashion students realize their
passion for their fashion studies and it is here that they obtain real world experience.
The school helps them build profiles and resumes which they can use after graduation.
While it is a for profit school, they keep up with the times and they have created many
places that the students can use, for instance low cost housing. Even though the San Francisco
city sued them, they were able to be able to keep this housing, and create a museum of
old, antique cars which they placed in a museum.
The school, in order to keep their teachings current have many professors who
also work in the entertainment field, or they are designers. The purpose of this is to
be able to have the students put together a portfolio and also a resume which will help
them after they graduate to get them into their fashion dream.
