ANNOUNCEMENT ARTS OF FASHION
2011 – TENSION / FEELING THE HEAT
Arts of Fashion Foundation is preparing itself for the 2011 AOF Awards
Not only is SFAI home to a famous Diego Riviera mural, it also preserves the tradition of collecting illustrious artists among both alumni and faculty. This trading mark illustrates at best the transmission of art and professional practice as well as culture and society to an up and coming generation of talents. The Arts of Fashion Foundation is thrilled to introduce, showcase and bring together over 60 emerging fashion talents from around the world in such an inspirational, vitalized and educative space.
This 10th year anniversary offers a careful consideration for the Arts of Fashion organization. In regards to the economic turmoil, the Foundation is going through a restrictive phase. Participating students, designers, professionals, partners and volunteers alike can therefore consider themselves as Fashion warriors. Special thanks goes to YKK Corp. of America: a 5-year Partner.
Seizing SFAI's vibrant spirit and environment, this upcoming Fashion Rendez-Vous has been developed around an intensive two-day schedule, open to the public. A strong attention will be given to the students’ work, with a candidate exhibition and a portfolio session reviewed with jurors. In addition, lectures and networking opportunities will complement a unique two-day-long fashion show.
Late afternoon Sunday Oct. 30 2011, the Arts of Fashion Symposium will culminate in a special Awards Ceremony, rewarding emerging talents with tremendous potential.
