This year’s fashion school commencement shows are quickly turning into a busy collections season of their own, featuring some great-looking clothes. At The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, seniors were inspired by everything from homelessness (Mi Ri Uhm) to the mythical Russian figure Baba Yaga (Sarah Newman). Especially notable were Rachel Frank’s take on Dante’s “The Divine Comedy” — with Pride embodied by a slinky dip-dyed gown — and Jessica Grate’s lushly embellished lineup influenced by a recent trip to India. Before the show, the audience also got a look at the school’s new 25,000-square-foot design space, the Sage Studios for Fashion Design.
