SAN FRANCISCO, May 20, 2009 / FW/ — Entitled, “On the Runway at the 2009 Fashion Show: Fashion Metamorphosis”, students at The Art Institute of California – San Francisco will parade their creative talents on the catwalk on Saturday, June 20 at 7pm at the San Francisco Design Center at 101 Henry Adams St.

With approximately 1,400 guests expected, including industry professionals, Bay Area designers, fellow students, family and friends during the event, designs by graduating students following the theme “Fashion Metamorphosis” will focus on the creative evolution of fashion given current economic conditions and the globalization of a world economy.

With fashion forecasters predicting a return to the classics, the fall of fast fashion, and a reemergence of unique design and creativity, The Art Institute of California – San Francisco challenged its students to think about the future of fashion and expand their creative minds. The result is Fashion Metamorphosis.

This eclectic and unique event will showcase over 100 looks from 25 designers. The full range of fashions on the runway will portray emerging trends across all categories, including: vintage coats inspired by 1940’s Hollywood; Moulin-Rouge type show girl costumes; full wedding party including bridal gown, bridesmaid and flower girl dresses; lingerie; evening gowns; men’s wear; and a variety of children’s wear.

A panel of industry professionals and top designers will judge the fashions as they saunter down the runway. The judges will then decide whose designs received top marks for various categories, including “Most Creative” and “Best Design”. Students with the highest scores will be acknowledged at the show and awarded with special prizes.
