But Not by as Many Units as You'd Think
Last weekend's annual Art Institute graduate showcase and fundraiser fashion made me cry within the first 10 minutes. Sure, the complimentary VIP-tinis might have been an influence, but the show opened with an inspiring making-of documentary video, followed by a touching tribute to Sue Bonde, Academic Director for the Apparel Department that had me blinking back the floodworks. My eyes cleared up, however, to take a look at the evening's main event: the debut of graduates' senior collections, where I was keeping watch for the names I want to start keeping tabs on.
