The 2015 CCA Gala Alumni Fashion show was a memorable evening of fun and fashion at the San Francisco campus. The central Nave was transformed by designer Stanlee Gatti. Attendees enjoyed a sumptuous dinner by Taste catering followed by an exciting runway show.
Six CCA Fashion Design alumni showcased a variety of work from couture to men's wear to children’s wear. Since graduating, some have started their own labels, and others work for major fashion houses such as Bibhu Mohapatra and Badgley Mischka.
