Last week some of New York’s most iconic fashion names were heading south to support the 2014 graduation show (have a look at Refinery 29 for a full report) at Savannah College of Art and Design. This season they took the show to the next level by presenting the collections in the SCAD Museum of Art. A beautifully restored building designed by (Christian Sottile). Among the guests were Pat Cleveland and Andre Leon Talley, a long time SCAD supporter, who presented his Lifetime Achievement Award to the acclaimed fashion designer Stephen Burrows, who is the subject of a special exhibition at SCAD through September 15 titled ‘An American Master of Inventive Design.
Guests included J. Alexander, who coached the models on their walks and especially their attitude, Natalie Joos from the vintage fashion blog: Tales of Endearment, among other editors and insiders coming to see what the next generation is up to. The Dizon team was brought in to bring a touch of NY fashion week to the Savannah school.
In honor of J. Alexander, the models created a tribute video of his signature pose.
In case you missed the livestream of the SCAD fashion show, you can re-watch it on their website.
