    Sure, San Francisco is far from being a fashion capital. But if you need proof that the city houses some major budding talent in the sartorial field, all you need to do is cast your eyes toward the Academy of Art University, and its fashion program headed up by designer Simon Ungless, who started the Alexander McQueen label in partnership with the late designer, in the early '90s.

    With a master instructor behind them, 25 fashion students marched a total of 17 collections (many of them collaborations between students) down the runway late last week.

    Check out our top 50+ looks from the show (trust us, it was hard to narrow them down!) after the jump, and let us know your favorites in the comments.
