FUA student, Alexia Whitaker, was featured in ELEGANT Magazine issue No. 19. Last spring, Alexia Whitaker enrolled in an apparel design course with FUA where she was given the resources possible to grow as a designer. Through this course, she learned about the different elements and pieces that go into designing a collection. The styling team Hylozoic*A discovered a top designed by Alexia and featured at FLY, and chose the piece for the Golden Cage spread of ELEGANT.

The mission of FUA and FLY Fashion Loves You boutique is to foster interaction with the local community through a Florentine perspective of fashion. Once a student completes a semester, their work is featured in the FLY boutique for 6 months. During this time, designers are able to browse through completed student work to find pieces that they could use in upcoming projects or photoshoots.

Florence University of the Arts offers experiential learning classes that provide students with opportunities to gain practical knowledge in their field of study. FLY Fashion Loves You boutique was established to give students the chance to produce quality work that can be taken seriously in the fashion industry.
