Recap: Spring 2012 AAS Fashion Design Exhibit

Of course, I will begin my post with saying that we should all give a warm round of applause to all the graduating fashion design students! What an amazing  job they did in last month’s exhibit inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli!

For those who are unaware – Elsa Schiaparelli’s is a fashion legend. Elsa Schiaparelli was a 1930’s and 40’s Italian fashion designer. She greatly impacted fashion with her unique style and art form.

Just in case you missed it – here are some images from the exhibit.  Each designer had a mission related to the back story which was, “Get inside Elsa Schiaparelli’s head as a designer, who was she in her world culture, what she was saying through her innovative design and quirky aesthetic, how she was inspired by her close collaborations with contemporary fine artists.”
