The BF+DA recently hosted the The High School of Art & Design Fashion Department’s Annual Spring Fashion Show. The amazing, sold out event  brought together not just a tier of super talented students but a local community ready to support their hard work. Scholarships were granted by the Underfashion Club, Limitess La Vie and The Priscilla Wood Foundation.

With the theme of SUSTAINABLE FASHION, the runway show featured career wear, sleepwear and conceptual fashion looks up-cycled and locally manufactured using earth-friendly fibers.

The fashion show featured the top designs from a contest held among the High School of Art & Design fashion students with looks produced at the Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator. At the conclusion of the fashion show, over $10,000 in fashion school scholarships were awarded to the students who developed the most outstanding garments.

BF+DA Pattern Maker Maya Blevins says she worked this year for the second year with students from The High School of Art and Design for their annual fashion show and is always inspired.

“I am always impressed with the students from HSAD, by their enthusiasm and dedication to such a big project. As a patternmaker, it is my role to work with them through the construction and fabrication of their designs.  It is always exciting to see them express their vision in illustrations, technical drawings, as well as their design direction during the fittings,” Blevins says adding that it is an inspiration to see “such talented young adults” and to work with them through their process of testing their ambitions as they evolve their concept and design.

We’ve put together a collection of images of some of those final designs for you here as well as a beautiful video of the process-enjoy!
