The Art of Transformation

For the first time, The Art Institute of California—Hollywood, The Art Institute of California—Inland Empire, The Art Institute of California—Orange County, and The Art Institute of California—San Diego, all campuses of Argosy University, joined forces to produce one phenomenal show featuring final collections from graduating and recently graduated students. This year’s event was titled "Art of Transformation Defined By You" and was held on Saturday, June 10, 2017 at the Cooper Design Space in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles’ fashion district. Appetizers, a no host bar, and various art pieces showcasing each school’s programs greeted guests when the doors opened. 

In addition to showcasing the students’ fashion journey, the show gave back to the community and raised awareness for Working Wardrobes, a nonprofit organization empowering men, women, young adults, and veterans through career development and wardrobe services. Each campus hosted a gently used professional clothing and accessories drive leading up to the event.
