Academy of Art University Churns Out More Future Designers

Every year for the last 21 years, the School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University holds a runway showcase featuring the works of the school’s recent graduates.


In an article by the Huffington Post, the Academy of Art’s most recent show at New York’s Skylight Clarkson Square on Sept. 21, 2017, was detailed complete with photos of many of the new designs brought forth by the grads. Though the Academy of Art is located in San Francisco, the show took place in one of the fashion meccas of the world, New York City and featured seven new clothing collections, five for women and two for men.


The article briefly noted the diverse backgrounds of the 10 graduates ranging from native American soil to south of the border Mexico and all the way to China. However, it quickly moved into the actual designs themselves and featured photos of some of the favorite ones at the showcase.


The showcase provides each of the graduates with a chance to show their imagination and creativity within their designs and have them displayed in front of potential future clients and/or employers.


This is part of why many want to get into the School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. While it is an opportunity to learn from many standouts within the industry, the chance to make connections may be even more valuable.


Though the Academy of Art was founded back in 1929, it took a quantum leap forward in 2007 when the school got its regional accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. It is a full-time university complete with undergraduate degrees, graduate degrees, and online degrees in as many as 25 different subjects. The school even has an athletic department and competes at the NCAA Division II level under the mascot name the Urban Knights.


However, the university with a 12,600 student body has stayed true to its roots as a private art and design school, the largest of its kind in the country. Events such as its fashion showcase continue to show that the university makes its mark in the world of fashion and design.


Fabletics as a Business

It’s easy to forget how hard it is to actually run a business. Usually, magazines and TV specials only show a successful business that’s thriving or a failed business that’s already boarded up. That doesn’t show people all of the hard work it takes to build any kind of company successfully.

One trick that smart brands, like Fabletics, use ease the workload is embracing the power of the crowd. At first, no company wants to place all of its chips into one basket, but in the case, that’s the best thing to do. Crowdsourcing is growing in popularity and consumers rely heavily on online reviews for their purchase decisions.

Fabletics experienced tremendous growth over the last four years, thanks to user reviews. Before people didn’t have an honest information source that helped them make the perfect purchase decision. Traditional marketing and advertising were never fully trusted by people.

These days, user reviews are popular because they’re honest reviews from people who’ve already purchased a particular product or service. While some reviewers are sponsored by the companies they’re reviewing, many are just normal people offering their opinion about a company’s products or services to just let other people the truth.

The truth about Fabletics is simple: it’s a great brand. In just four years, Fabletics opened over a dozen successful retail stores, which isn’t easy in today’s economy. They also have millions of followers and over one million paying members. It didn’t take long for the brand to go international, now selling in eight countries.

As more than a business, Fabletics is perfect. It has just enough charm and personality to attract millions of followers. That personality comes from Kate Hudson. She uses Fabletics as a weapon against unhealthy habits in a way that doesn’t make people feel like she’s pressuring them to change.

That’s another thing that sets Fabletics apart from the rest. It’s not about selling activewear to the already fit and healthy. It’s about slowly inspiring the less fit and healthy to pursue a healthier lifestyle. If a woman wants to have a few glasses of wine, she can.

It’s because of that personality that’s made their retail stores so successful. Each store spends time getting to know the local markets.
