Fashion Show 2017: Collaborative Collections
The School of Fashion and School of Jewelry & Metal Arts once again joined forces on the runway for the annual showcase of the departments' creative and stylish designs. This year's Graduation Fashion Show featured JEM-BFA students Ryan Hsiang (with Jeanne Marie Sanguinetti, FSH-BFA), Pei-Ling "Ann" Tsai (with Jiran Xia, FSH-BFA), Qin "Samantha" Xu (with Joanna Jadallah, FSH-BFA), and Naz Khorram (with Thao Thai, FSH-BFA) as part of the collaboration team. Exploring themes ranging from retro gaming to one's cultural roots, each collection had its own distinct color that harmoniously paired together outfit with accessory.
Weekly newspaper California Apparel News recently highlighted the show, selecting one of Jeanne and Ryan's Pac-Man-inspired designs to grace the cover of the May 19th print edition (pictured above). Check out the digital version on the website here! The article, written by Alison A. Nieder, can be found on pages 6-7.
Amazing work, JEM/FSH students!
