Academy of Art 2011 Fall/Winter Collections

First designer up was Holly Smith, who’s woman’s collection was inspired by the Double Crested Cormorant, a water diving bird. Its sleek long neck and movements diving in and out of the water re symbolized in the hooded garments, details and seams. Her collection featured leather, wool and wool jersey and also featured hourglass silhouettes with broad shoulders which were representative of the female athletes who were Holly’s muses.
