This was the best show AAU yet. The talent is astounding. I’m so glad the AAU fashion blog has the video up now because my video for the show sucked, and it was hard to take pics and video sooo… anyway you can watch the show up above.
I am going to give you all the details on the graduate students who presented in order. If you couldn’t tell already each new collection comes up with each music change.
