Peep The Academy Of Art’s Incredible Show This Saturday!

AAU Show 1
After attending the Academy of Art University's annual BFA fashion show for a few years in a row now, we've come to the pretty much irrefutable conclusion that it is the ultimate San Francisco style event.
With something like sixteen mini-fashion shows pooled into one presentation (plus an awesome fashion film screening), there is a whole lot to take in. And it's all quite impressive, thanks to the 30-plus mega-talented student designers whose work takes center stage.
Want to see it for yourself? The AAU is presenting its show to the general public this weekend and we totally recommend you hit them up for the free tickets. Although the application process is tricky (prospective students get first dibs), we think it's also well worth the navigation, given the end result.
Just click on this link over here, be ready to pick up your tickets on a first-come, first-serve basis from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, May 5, and bring them to the show's venue at The Cannery at 2 p.m. to take it all in. Stragglers can also line up outside at 1:30 p.m. to test their luck at securing a seat, last-minute. Extra deets on below!
When: Saturday, May 5; Ticket pickup, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Showtime, 2 p.m.
Where: Ticket pickup is at Academy of Art University, 79 New Montgomery Street (between Mission and Market streets); Show is at The Cannery, 2801 Leavenworth Street (at Beach Street).
