As we've mentioned once before, the B.F.A. Fashion Show put on by the Academy of Art University
is hands-down the best runway presentation
in the Bay Area. Today's the big day of the event, which will feature 16 collections by 22 student designers, and we've got a little preview of the amazing, soon-to-be-shown garb thanks to these gorgeous
sketches from the rising talents. While tonight's show is invite-only (Cathy Horyn, Yigal Azrouël, and other fashion industry folks will be sitting front row!), on Saturday at 2 p.m. there will be an encore that is open to the public. For more information on the show and students, head to the AAU's blog, Fashion School Daily
. But for now, click through our pretty slide-show to get some local fashion inspiration.
