New York Fashion Academy (5201 Ballard Avenue NW) are set to host their 9th Annual Fashion Show this Saturday, April 13. The show is presented by students in the Academy’s Certificate Program of Mastery in Fashion Design and Construction.
New York Fashion Academy (NYFA) was established in 1979 and is a locally owned and operated state licensed Private Postsecondary Vocational Training School. NYFA aim to use proven industry techniques, including those used by New York’s 7th Avenue garment district, to promote creativity and imagination.
The runway show will feature innovative designs ranging from elegant to “rocker girl” and will also present designs that are locally and socially responsible. The event will “showcase the inspired collections of the newest wave of local fashion designers” says the New York Fashion Academy Provost Robert Whaley.
Ten students designers are in charge of all aspects of the show from garment design and construction to model selection, hair, make up, music selection and choreography. Check out the photo above of the designers in their planning meeting last week.
The collections will premiere at two showings on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. Tickets are $25 in advance and can be purchased online or in person at the academy. Tickets will be also available for $30 at the door.
