Fashion Experience 2018 Debuts 11 Collections by Emerging Designers

CCA Fashion Experience 2018 Teaser Trailer

The CCA Fashion Experience 2018 will debut 11 professionally juried thesis collections from graduating students in the school’s Fashion Design program this May. The students will present their work through both fashion show and—for the first time—installations that frame their collections with artistic vignettes and speak directly to their design narratives. Utilizing street-cast models, the show will reflect the diversity of the Bay Area as well as global contributions to fashion.

“We are proud to celebrate these newest voices in the fashion world with a cutting-edge, interactive installation experience,” says new program chair and pioneer of sustainable fashion design Lynda Grose. “This year’s Fashion Experience addresses the relationship between fashion, culture, and social identities while debuting this next generation of audacious designers.”

The free and public event will kick off with a presentation of the collections and will then open up into individual showcases with the designers and their models. Audiences will also be invited to experience and interact with the student installations—providing deeper engagement with both the designers’ collections and their processes.
