(California, June 2015)  The Art Institute of California – San Diego, a campus of Argosy University held its 7th Annual Fashion Show at the Westfield UTC mall in La Jolla.  The show was featured in Los Angeles Fashion, publisher of LA Fashion Weekly and LA Fashion Magazine.

The show was judged by a panel of fashion industry professionals which included San Diego’s very own celebrity guest designer and stylist Andre Soriano.  Soriano gained fame from his reality show appearance on singer Rhianna’s hit TV Bravo show, ’Style to Rock’.

Yasmin Santana from Los Angeles Fashion said that Eddie Harrison, a student in the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design, was one of her favorite designers.  She was quoted as saying: "One of my favorite student designers of the night was Eddie Harrison whose design inspirations came from the real world around him. Inspired by the city buildings, old rustic fences and every day surroundings he incorporated that into his collection. His designs had eye popping pop art work that is every day casual but yet with an edge. Eddie Harrison worked as a photographer for the military and as a photographer and that is evident through his designs, which is why I love his eye popping black and white sweater.”
