Give credit to Simon Ungless, the director of fashion (and former longtime colleague of Alexander McQueen) for whipping a group of master’s students into runway shape; the clothes sent out by six MFA students at this San Francisco school surpassed some of the contemporary shows already seen for fall. First up, Marina Solomatnikova worked suede into flattering dresses and coats, subtly detailed with draped and folded backs; then Bethany Meuleners highlighted texture with a Duchamp-inspired lineup of navy and plum-colored silk slips over intricately woven dresses and bodysuits. In his knitwear collection, Steven Oo used the lines of an Italian architect to inform his startlingly chic black sweater dresses and coats, which had little spikes along the back. And, with her jewel-bedecked felt coats, Sabah Mansoor Husain offered refined outerwear with a dash of twinkly color.
