Creativity was in full force Tuesday night as 13 student and alumni designers from The Art Institutes presented their micro-collections at Lincoln Center during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. The burgeoning designers came from all walks of life. There was a former marine, a carpenter, an architect, a mother – all of whom switched or added careers in order to design.
Industry experts John Bartlett, Bonnie Young, Cliodna Egan, Christina Neault and Douglas Hannant selected and mentored the talented up-and-coming Gustavo Alonso, Luis Aponte, Joshuan Aponte, Lauren Barisic, Lorena Cabrera, Anna Charest, Samuel Ciccone, Michael Doyle, Ryan Edmonds, German Madrigal, Christopher Maracha, Rei Yamamoto and Simone Young.
Bravo and Brava! Here a view into each one’s world:
