LOS ANGELES-The Otis College of Art and Design held its 32nd Annual Scholarship Benefit and Fashion Show on Saturday. The show featured stunning runway creations from thirty-seven fashion design seniors inspired by top trends and creativity.

This years graduating class was the envy of every fashion and design college in the United States by having godlike mentors: Todd Oldham, David Meister, Christina Kim of Dosa, Isabel Toledo, Amé Austin of Max Studio, and Bobbi Garland of Western Costume.

The themes, like every year, were difficult to grasp and challenged students to reach their full potential. Students were to design jersey evening dresses, Native American inspired gowns, plus-size sportswear, ethereal handcrafted dresses, architecturally inspired separates and, the jaw dropping finale, costumes inspired by popular 20th-century dances.

Student winners were Natalie Salvador for Dosa and Isabel Toledo, Michelle Song for Todd Oldham, Mark Manangan for Western Costume, Hye Mi Kim for Max Studio and, the Designer of the Year, Arthur Thammavong for David Meister.

Along with gifts and prizes given to the winning students, the Otis College of Art and Design also present a Creative Vision Award to Eddie Bauer and Michael Egeck. A Design Innovation Award was presented to Isabel and Ruben Toledo along with a Design Legend Award presented to Leon Max.
