Peep The Best Looks From The Academy of Art's Fall '12 Show

Although there are a slew of designers with Bay Area roots showing during New York Fashion Week (Alexander Wang, Erin Fetherston, the Rodarte duo, Derek Lam, etc.), there's really only one current resident going directly from San Francisco to the tents and then coming back again, and that would be the Academy of Art University.
The only fashion school whose students show during the seven days of fashion frenzy, the AAU set up shop at Lincoln Center on Friday night, showcasing the work of student designers Wu Di, Amy Bond, Xiang Zhang, Deanna Pei-Ju Lo, Donghyuk Dan Kim, Farida Khan, Kate Y. K. Lee, Jeanette Au, and Jade Juanyu Liu.
So, which of the fall '12 looks topped our list of faves? Take a click through after the jump and rest assured that our fine town is representing.
