Hosted at the Musée Yves Saint Laurent Marrakech, 50 finalists were selected from that group by a panel of judges to send their “mini collections” down the runway. At stake is a chance to win apprenticeships with renowned fashion houses across the globe including the Métiers d’Art – Chanel, Manish Arora in Delhi and scholarships for the Foundation’s Master Classes at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris.
Sunday December 15th and Monday 16th, the Arts of Fashion Foundation held the 2019 Symposium which brought together students, educators, and industry professionals to discuss creativity and its importance in the world of fashion today. The two-day event, hosted by long-time Committee Chair, Juliet Bergh at the Asian Art Museum, culminated with the 2019 Arts of Fashion International Competition Monday night.
