A breath of fresh AIR ahead.

Over the years, fashion shows have become more known as a spectacle with flashing lights and behind exclusive tents/venues in major, metropolitan cities. Even at an academic level, student fashion shows are normally associated with the likes of Parsons School of Design or Fashion Institute of Technology.

During my time at Cornell University, I have personally attended student fashion shows that were funded and supported by the school. This past November my perceptions of that were completely shaken between the halls, at an outdoor theatre in Pomona College - a renowned institution that is a part of the Claremont Consortium of Colleges. There

gathered to reveal his first fashion showcase with barely any support from the administration. It was quite a guerrilla undertaking of sorts, so mad respect for that. What followed in this intimate but public set up was a breath of fresh AIR: a cohesive collection of well-constructed high street pieces that has all the early indications of an established street fashion label. It was, overall, quite reminiscent of the early days of Alexander Wang with the softness and subtlety of Damir Doma.

I couldn't have been more excited to style my favorite piece from the runway that evening - this neoprene mesh hoodie vest is just everything - pardon the cliche. Below are some images captured the night of the show:
