School of Fashion at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Show presented by Academy of Art University’s School of Fashion
showed the media and retailers what the new breed of fashion looks like. Modeled after French textiles, this new generation of designers showed marketable women’s wear for Spring 2013 that is as wearable as it is fashionable. At Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, Academy of Art University joined forces with UBIFRANCE, the French Trade Commission, to present French fashion that was part traditional and part downtown chic. The theme “from work to play” was evident. On a hot, sticky evening at Lincoln Center in New York, most of us would have wished to be adorned in the easy elegance of the collection inspired by The French Riviera, infused with a distinctly West Coast edge and flair. Two thumbs up for these beautiful looks.
