Fusion Fashion 2015 – Patterns & Substrates

I was honored to be asked by one of my fashion students from Parsons to attend the yearly Fusion Fashion Show. Each year this show is organized to spotlight top up and coming fashion designers from the two most prestigious fashion schools in the country. You can go to their site and view all of the work and find out more of the show. All work shown here is property of the designer.

I found it incredibly inspiring to see all the hard work and creativity that went into the looks each of the designer’s looks. It’s interesting to see things that we talk about at Design Works in the creative minds of those who will represent design in the future…

We love print and pattern here and it is alive and well with some wonderful examples by these new designers.

It takes a great deal of skill & creativity to use such diverse materials and substrates. The mixing of the different fabrics and textures adds great feel to each of the pieces.

And a special shout-out to Rhea Goyal from Parsons. She invited me to the show and I’m proud to say that she is one of my students. I see great things from her in class and was wowed by what she showed me here.

I’d say the future of fashion and design is in pretty good hands.
