The University of Applied Arts Vienna announces the Show of its Fashion Department, headed by Hussein Chayalan

As every year the department of fashion design class at the University of Applied Arts Vienna will be holding the country's most-esteemed fashion show. Under the direction of Hussein Chalayan graduates and students will be presenting their latest collections at an event that you are most cordially invited to attend.

Fashion design training with top professors

The Show Angewandte was initiated in order to enable students to present their creations within the context of a professional fashion show. The most promising talents of the Fashion Department at Angewandte – the only Austrian institution offering a university-level diploma in the field of fashion design – show their collections that have been created under the guidance of internationally renowned fashion designer and professor of the department, Hussein Chalayan. The Show Angewandte has become one of the biggest and most demanded fashion shows in the country. It is widely known nationally as well as internationally not only among fashion experts and has achieved excellent reputation over the years.

Since the early 1980s the chair of the fashion class has been filled by international fashion stars in high demand such as Karl Lagerfeld, Jil Sander, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Raf Simons, Viktor & Rolf, Bernhard Willhelm or – like the present head of the class – Hussein Chalayan. Graduates of the fashion class have gone on to create their own labels such as Sagan Vienna, Bless, GON, Petar Petrov, Ute Ploier oder Wendy&Jim, have assumed top-level positions in the Austrian and international fashion sector or with renowned fashion companies such as Balenciaga, COMME des GARÇONS, J.W. Anderson, Lanvin, Prada, Louis Vuitton, to name only a few.
