The month of May not only ushers in warm weather, it traditionally kicks off student show season. With no less than seven schools with a fashion program in the San Francsico Bay Area there are a bevy of opportunities to get out and see what tomorrow's aspiring designers have to offer. First in line to show, and honestly a major SW favorite due to the consistently creative and well executed collections, is the California College of the Arts Senior Fashion Show, set to take to the runway May 17th.
From the official press release:
"CCA Fashion Design Program chair Amy Williams says, "Each year our Fashion Design students push the boundaries of traditional fashion forward. This senior cohort is no different. These young design innovators stretched their thinking and making skills far beyond the confines of their studio training. They have all questioned for themselves the hows and whys of today’s fashion market, and each strives to respond by showcasing a material answer constructed from their personal perspective. I am so excited to introduce the public to this year's emerging talents."
Tickets for the event are $40 for general admission, and $100 for VIP which includes admission to the pre-event cocktail party and preferred seating at the show. For more information, including bios of a few of the featured designers please visit the official CCA Fashion Design Program home page.
