The featured designers include: Jessica Barrett, Anna Bazhaeva, Josue Beltran, Vandy Brooks, UzielCastaneda, Ian Chambers, Edison Cortez, Romeo Cruz, Lydia Liu, Alena Sablan, Nicole Young, Crystal Culp, Stephanie Garcia, Elizabeth Glassner, Diana Ramirez-Sotto.

“L’Art de la Mode is a wonderful opportunity for students to learn what it takes to put together a fashion show. With garments created by fashion design students and a runway show completely produced by fashion marketing students, it provides students with a first-hand look at the interdependency that happens in the fashion industry.” – Lex Sanderson, the Fashion Director at The Art Institute of California – Hollywood.
