The Savannah College of Art and Design recently presented its 2016 Fashion Show featuring work by graduating students. The full show can be streamed online at https://www.scad.edu/fashionshow2016
In conjunction with the show, designer Carolina Herrera was presented with the 2016 SCAD Étoile award. Each year SCAD honors a designer who has made a lasting impact on the fashion industry.
A retrospective exhibition of Herrera’s work, “Refined Irreverence”, is now on view at the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta, and at the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah. This dual exhibit showcases more than 75 garments spanning over 30 years of Herrera’s career. Both shows will be on view through September 4.
