The Academy of Art University Graduation Fashion Show

Last Thursday evening the Academy of Art University in San Francisco had their graduation fashion show which was pretty impressive to say the least. Aside from the fact that the students produced some great work the guest of honor was Sarah Burton who is a graduate of the school and was awarded an honorary doctorate from the Academy during her trip. She credits the school’s director, Simon Ungless who helped get her an internship at Alexander McQueen (Simon was a classmate and friend of McQueen’s from London’s Central Saint Martins) which of course led to her job and the rest is history. Ms. Burton selected two graduating students as interns, Maria Azucena Romero and Zhangchi Wang who was also one of my favorites. Zhangchi’s collection above and below, and more of my favorite student collections as well as images of Sarah Burton with Zhangchi Wang…
