Austin’s Linda Asaf Reviews Art Institute NYFW Show

by | February 28th, 2016

To attend fashion week in New York is an exciting event to attend when you LOVE fashion and dream about attending the shows.  To attend in February you need some thick skin and some warm, fashionable clothes to brave the frigid temps this time of year.   One local designer, Linda Asaf, bundled up and helped Fashionably Austin by filing this report on the Art Institute runway show where she enjoyed seeing lots of creativity and talent from young up and coming designers.  Thanks Linda!!

Zenia De Sousa, Ai Miami International University

Clearly the most talented of the bunch!  Her black and white collection was tight and DSC03158brilliant with creative use, of all things, of grommets!  Zenia cleverly made it work for men’s as well as women’s looks.  I went gaga over her vinyl capri pants with the B&W inside-out sequin pockets.  Love! Go girl!

David Marquise Seward, Ai Philadelphia

David had some crazy fun, eclectic fabrics combinations including leather, strips, polka dots and sepia digital prints that were put together into some winning silhouettes.  The DSC03250layered polka dot skirt with ‘saddlebags of polka dots’ were a fun whimsical touch.  Reminiscent of Anna Sui meets Betsey Johnson.  Great fun and originality!

Nhi Nguyen, Ai Houston

She made Texas proud at NYFW!  Nui’s NASA-inspired collection featured creative use of hight tech fabrics in metallic gold, silver, and pearl.  Modern, angular style lines are to be expected but Nhi also did a beautiful job of creating a fluid, feminine evening gown.  Brilliant.

It was very apparent that Cheryl was going to be in the fashion business at a very young age. She enjoyed every aspect of the fashion industry from styling to sewing . What a wonderful journey is has been for this true fashion trailblazer! Cheryl majored in Fashion Merchandising at Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois where she was active in departmental events and found a particular interest in fashion show production. She assisted creating large runway shows and found it was easy and fulfilling. She also worked in a small fashion boutique where she used her natural love of sales and people skills to build a loyal clientele. But upon graduation, Dallas, TX was her target city to live to expand her fashion career.
