Academy of Art University Spring 2013 Collection Struts the Runway at NYFW

Fashion’s tastemakers, buyers, editors and financiers work this week to not only note the trends and set the tone for the coming season but to hunt for the insider’s holy grail: the industry’s next Marc Jacobs or Proenza Schouler.  

Each season the Academy of Art University presents a select few to the masses at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, a veritable auction block for the next fashion-industry darling. Friday's presentation of their 2013 collections at Lincoln Center proved that their best and brightest are not only accomplished technicians, in step and on-trend, but that their vision behind their clothes is strong, strong enough to keep the industry at full attention, on thier radar, ready to see what’s next.
