The Art Institute of Pittsburgh’s fourth annual Graduate Fashion Show took place on Saturday, June 18, 2016 at 2 p.m. at the Omni William Penn Hotel, downtown Pittsburgh.

The show featured the work of 11 designers—a mix of graduating students and recent grads. Designs ranged from children’s clothing to evening attire and jewelry.

One of the designers that presented in the show had pieces modeled in the SMGlobal Catwalk show at New York Fashion Week. Gerald Love, who has since graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Fashion Design (2016), also shared select pieces from his collection at the Pittsburgh Downtown Community Development Corporation’s Mellon Square Design Fest in June 2016.  

Students in the school’s Event and Fashion Show Production class, led by instructor Suzanne Mauro, organized the runway show. Each designer showcased 4-5 pieces, and guests had the opportunity to view portfolios created by graduates of the school’s fashion programs. Judges at the fashion show included independent producer, writer, editor and stylist Reese Randall as well as representatives from Macy’s, Nordstrom and Rue 21. Awards were given to the top collections.
