ACADEMY OF ART – NEW YORK A/W 2010 FASHION SHOW
Students of Simon Ungless (Director of Fashion and former longtime colleague of Alexander McQueen) at the Academy of Art University, presented their collections at Bryant Park this year to much acclaim. Marina Solomatnikova, inspired by Georgia O’ Keefe paintings, featured gray suede tailoring with modern cropped trousers and organza trims on jacket collars, with some lovely gray zip utility dresses. Whilst, Betthany Meuleners showed dramatic asymmetrical black floor length dresses with delicate layering and rich burgundy silk pieces. Drawing upon her prairie-style upbringing, Naomi Sutton used ivory lace pilgrim-like collars and played upon soft silhouettes, keeping everything monochromatic.
