Behind the Scenes with the School of Fashion's M.F.A. Designers

Earlier this month, 15 M.F.A. fashion designers and textile designers from Academy of Art University's School of Fashion showcased their talented work at Lincoln Center in New York City during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. Prior to making their trip out to the Big Apple, we caught up with the designers, who spoke with us about their collections, inspirations and design process.
