The Art Institute of New York City as one of 10 student and graduate designers for its fashion show at Lincoln Center on Thursday, September 5 at 6:00 PM.
The Fashion Week exposure will give the young designers the chance to see first-hand what it takes to market themselves and their designs to potential clients and buyers.
Quitisha, a 2013 graduate of the Institute, has created a mix-and-match collection inspired by thrifting and repurposing. She describes the collection as about living spontaneously in a "hyperactive world."
Her collection, incorporating her own block print design, aims at sophisticated-yet-edgy femininity.
