Students watch a demonstration of circular knitting machines at North Carolina State UniversityView slideshow 

Last summer, several Fashion Design and Textiles students, along with Fashion Design chair Amy Williams, embarked on a memorable research trip to North Carolina, experiencing firsthand the production of fabrics from farm to mill; from fiber to fabric to fashion.

“The students heard directly about how their insights, interests, and dreams can and are affected by the bigger world story (recession, import vs. export, local vs. international). The students, all visual and hands-on learners, got it loud and clear by the end of the trip!” explains Williams.

They visited companies with long-standing roots in the Carolinas, many family owned and operated and many especially conscious of environmental impact, providing not only sustainable products and ecologically sensitive materials but also supporting the people who work for them.

The annual fashion show at California College of the Arts was held on Friday, May 13. The whole evening affair felt both more lively and more intimate this year. Prior to the fashion show, the multi-disciplinary student exhibitions that are spread out in the campus building (1111 8th Street, San Francisco) attracted many observers. The Friends of Fashion VIP reception goers weaved their way through fashion design process exhibit, information-overload social app exhibit, and so much more.

I appreciate unusual clothing (that means I like to wear weird stuff), so I was enthralled at last Friday’s California College of Arts senior fashion show, where the winner of the Levi’s Award, Caroline Chun, made garments with unexpected panels, and buttons unmatched to buttonholes, creating fabric drapes and bunches of cloth. This isn’t for fans of L.L. Bean couture; it’s a dare.

Student fashion shows always strike an emotional chord with the crowd. Perhaps, it’s the optimistic spirit of new beginnings and the students’ unmasked enthusiasm, perhaps yet to be replaced with cynicism. Or the young supporters in the audience, dressed in the latest trends and cheering on their friends. The California College of Arts Annual Fashion Show on Friday, May 13 was along these lines, with much anticipation and energy in the air.
