Some schools give exams. But one school, the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, has a select few students premiere their final project during New York Fashion Week. On September 10th, six students will be unveiling their Spring 2011 collections at the AAU runway show. Maria Korovilas, a talented designer from Baltimore is one of the lucky six. “Showing a collection at [New York] Fashion Week is like inviting the world to glimpse your soul,” she says.

 Fashion Week is quickly approaching. What’s going through her head? “There’s no time for thoughts, just work, work, work!” Maria says.

  1. Sew what! Just kidding, I like that she designs for her and is not looking to go mainstream (since she is not looking…she will ultimately end up in the mainstream–stand by!).

  2. This is totally AWESOME Maria!!You have worked sooo very hard & now is your time to shine & SHINE YOU WILL ON THE RUNWAY IN NEW YORK @ FASHION WEEK. I really never put much thought into the time, thought process & hours that went into fashion designing. I just know that one day soon, I will be wearing something that has MARIA KOROVILAS on the label…… WAY TO GO!!!
    Love ya,
    Tami (your big sis)
