Academy of Art University: Menswear Design & Textile Design Collaboration Collection


Annie Yang and Jasmine Xu presented their Menswear Design & Textile Design Collaboration Collection at the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show in San Francisco on May 11th, 2016. Annie Yang, B.F.A. Menswear Design, was born and raised in Taiwan. Inspired by the illusionary work of  Brazil-based artist Daniel Steegmann, Yang’s mission was to design a trompe l’oeil collection that imparts  the beauty and relativity of space.

With the help of BFA Textile Design student, Jasmine Juewei Xu, Yang  was able to create oversized, multilayered garments that produce a distorted perspective. Jasmine Xu,  B.F.A. Textile Design, is a Kunming, China native who, after years at the School of Fashion, has become a  textile savant. Her designs have been featured in Academy of Art University’s SHOP657. Xu is an  idiosyncratic artist who likes to think outside the box. For Yang’s collection, Xu used baby powder on cotton  twill and cotton sateen to give the fabrics an element of interest. The result is a unique fading texture that  perfectly complements Yang’s voluminous designs.
