AAU Taylor Carr Grad 2014 (1)

Taylor Carr, B.F.A. Fashion Design, grew up in San Mateo, California. Taylor won the Teen Vogue CFDA Award in 2012. His collection was inspired by hypnagogia: a world between reality and dreams, which blends together what is real and what is not. To achieve a collection that looks as though it could be conjured from a dream or premonition, Taylor hand-placed various sized Swarovski crystals onto brocade fabrics; one pair of trousers contains over 5,000 crystals. Other fabrics used in the collection include wool suiting, wool crepe and cotton shirting.
