The Academy of Art University Shines in New York Fashion Show

The School of Fashion at the Academy of Art University held its annual fashion show in New York on September 9, 2017. This was the school’s 21st show in a row. The goal of the show is to show off new styles and find new model talent. It is hard to find true talent at the shows. The diverse group of designers had a wide range of ideas that impressed industry icons such as Ms. J Alexander. The show was another huge success and received great reviews.

The Academy of Art University is located in San Francisco and opened its doors in 1929. The school was founded by Richard S. Stephens. The school has nearly 300 full time teachers, over 1100 part time staff and 12,600 students. The school states that it is the largest of its kind in the United States. When the school first opened, its focus was teaching students how to advertise art. The founder Richard Stephens was originally a painter and magazine editor. He ran the school until his son Richard A. Stephens took over in 1951. Elisa Stephens took over as president in 1992 and has had a very successful tenure. Under her leadership the school grew from 2000 to 18000 students in 2012. The school first started participating in New York Fashion Week in 2005. Participating in the show has been a great success for the school and students by bringing worldwide exposure to the school from the fashion and modeling industry.

The school is regionally and nationally accredited. It offers associate, bachelor, and master degrees primarily on campus but some online courses are offered. The school typically has a diverse group of students with females usually being in the majority. The school also owns and runs the prestigious Academy of Art University Automobile Museum. The school has at least 200 of the rarest and highly valued cars in the world. The inventory is worth approximately $70 million. Some of the cars are owned by the family and the others by the school. The school also plays nine National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) sports.

Rising Prices Driving out Residents

The bay are is the undisputed technological capital of the World, as just about every major internet and technological company has their company rooted between the major cities of San Francisco, San Jose, and Oakland. The entire bay area has expanded in a myriad of ways over the last few years, jobs have been created as companies have poured in, but there have been a ton of problems that have come as well. First and foremost is the fact that housing prices have gone through the roof. Homes in San Jose have blossomed up to well over a million dollars, and to rent a moderate apartment in San Francisco, you would be lucky to be paying less then four or five thousand dollars. The entire bay area has seen a massive increase in traffic, with special lanes being constructed and tolls being paid to drive in certain lanes during rush hour.
There is one thing that just over a third of all people in the region have on their minds, and that is getting out of the area. For people that have lived in the bay area for their entire lives, which is a truly amazing place to live, it is incredibly bitter sweet to make the decision to leave. However, when you consider the fact that just by moving over to the Central Valley, you could buy five houses of equal value and likely put enough money in the bank to be set for life. This is especially true if you were doing decent to well in the bay area in recent years. Polls have showed that the bulk of people that want to leave have only been in the area for five years or less, but it really is remarkable to see so many people wanting to leave one of the areas that a ton of people consider one of the most desirable places in the country. Top notch weather, ample high paying jobs, a beautiful landscape, and large amounts of entertainment are not something that most people flee from, so the rising problems in the Bay Area in terms of housing costs and traffic are starting to become very apparent.
