New York Fashion Academy 12th Annual Runway Show

New York Fashion Academy 12th Annual Runway Show

My final event of yesterday was, of course, the New York Fashion Academy 12th Annual Runway Show. I attended the event last year and was beyond impressed with the level of talent displayed by the students. This year, I expected no less and finished the night totally pleased by the collections from the eleven designers.

I didn’t take too many photos because I was so consumed with all of the fashion going on before my very eyes, but here are a few of the shots I managed to snap.
