DALLAS, May 1, 2008 / FW/ — As part of its academic program, the School of Fashion at Academy of Art University give their graduating students a chance to show their graduation collection among industry veterans who show during the New York season.

Felice Morganti, Fashion Design graduate, created a collection inspired by fiber artists, the arts and crafts movement, nature and the environment. Most evident of her inspiration are her felted-wool applications, which look like dreadlocks. She has blended organic wools and leathers resulting in a sculpturally modern silhouette with a Haight-Asbury feel.

The Pennsylvania native collaborated with fellow student Daniel Armosilla, (Fashion and Knitwear Design) for the dreadlock scarves used in the collection.
