Academy of Art University~Heather McDonald

Thank goodness for the internet and friends in some what high places that I got a chance to view this young lady's wonderful 9 piece collection which she showed at Mercedes~Benz Fashion Week. Heather McDonald who hails from Alberta Canada earned a Bachelor degree in Biology and Anthropology from University of Toronto but then continued her education at Academy of Art with a degree in Fashion and Knitwear. While getting her degree she did internships at VPL in New York City.

Her collection is inspired from the 1927 movie Metropolis which explores the relationship between humans and technology. Granted I have seen this inspiration before but Heather seems to understand it better and it shows with her debut collection.
