Distinguished guests and fashion industry professionals gathered on May 18 in San Francisco to view collections created by graduating students of the School of Fashion, Academy of Art University. The annual runway show also served as a platform to formally introduce the school’s new executive director, Neil Gilks, and its first Industry Advisory Board. The Advisory Board comprises 13 leaders in fashion design, costume design, textiles, communication, education, talent acquisition, and business across the industry at large. University President Elisa Stephens continued the evening’s celebrations while hosting a private dinner after the fashion show.
