Fashion Forward - Simply Buckhead Cover story

The fashion industry is obsessed with what’s new and what’s next. One of the places shaping the next generation of innovators is The Art Institute of Atlanta, located in Dunwoody. “Our school is a complete creative institution,” explains Octavius Terry, AIA’s Fashion Program chair. “Students get to collaborate creatively with other students, not only in fashion, but in our other degree programs such as culinary, photography, graphic and web, interior design, media arts and animation, just to name a few. [Interacting with] other creatives who have a different eye has often proven successful.” Students hail from around the world—from Atlanta and other farther-flung places like Africa and South America—bringing diverse perspectives to the uber-creative designs you’ll find here.
