Congratulations to the fashion design class of 2022-- you have persevered in a difficult time of change and uncertainty- successfully transitioning back into the studio- and accomplishing great things. This years’ work reflects many of the important issues that face our industry- addressing agism, inclusivity, gender neutral design, responsible design and so much more. You have created beautiful, meaningful, and powerful work with grace, style, compassion, and incredible support for one another other. You have shared positive and powerful messaging and shown your desire to make the world a better place, through the lens of fashion.

Here are a few timeless quotes from designers that reflect on the past year:

  • “I just don’t like to settle, good enough is never good enough”. Josie Natori*
  • “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only, Fashion is in the sky, in the street. Fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live-what is happening”. Coco Chanel*
  • “Buy less and choose well”. Vivienne Westwood*
  • “Fashion is instant language”. Miuccia Prada*
  • “Life is so short you can't waste even a day subscribing to what someone thinks you can do versus knowing what you can do.” Virgil Abloh*

So, best wishes for your next adventure, we can’t wait to see what you do!
