Academy of Art University Strikes a Pose on the Runway at New York Fashion Week

Once again, 10 lucky (and extremely talented) student designers will show off their collections at next week's Spring 2014 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. If, like us, you'll be stuck in San Francisco, you'll have the chance to view the show in real time via a live webcast. Here, a quick rundown of what to expect, with info on when to tune in.

Shanshan Bai and Winbo Shiau: Inspired by natural curling lines of floral panels and the twisting of sculpted surfaces. Her clothes use a blend of silk gazar, wool, and linen yarn.

Ryan Morar and Melissa Avalos: Inspired by Robert Rauschenberg, Sonic Youth, and Beat Happening albums. Pieces of garments were deconstructed to create new shapes and silhouettes.
