Kevin Smith recently graduated from the Academy of Art University with an M.F.A in Fashion Design. He is an emerging menswear designer who’s clothes are built for the hybrid man. His Fall 2016 collection was presented at New York Fashion Week. His collection, “Running Light,” was inspired by the ideas of light and volume. Inspiration came from Christo’s Running Fence, a 24.5-mile-long nylon installation art piece made by Christo and Jeanne-Claude in 1976, as well as vintage light bulbs and candle smoke. His clothes are layered pieces with flowing overcoats inspired from artists and his background in the fine arts.
