Fashion design and jewelry and metal arts collaboration between Busara Boussard & Eirin Midtskogseter was featured in the Academy of Art University 2016 Graduation Fashion Show.

Busara Boussard, B.F.A. Fashion Design, was born and raised in Bangkok, Thailand. Her accomplishments include being selected as a winner of the YMA FSF Young Menswear Association Fashion Scholarship Fund in 2015 & 2016. Winning the scholarship in 2015 led her to acquire a summer internship with Ralph Lauren in New York. For her collection, entitled “Rude Locker”, Boussard was influenced by the colors, shapes and architectural details of the EPM Museum in Seattle. She also looked to the uniforms and equipment from the sport of Lacrosse for inspiration. The colorful collection stands out through its implementation of interesting drapery and color blocking. Eirin Midtskogseter, B.F.A. Jewelry & Metal Arts, was born in Norway. On top of pursuing her degree in Metal Arts she has attained a Bachelors degree in Teacher Training in Art and Design, which she received in 2013. Midtskogseter’s jewelry designs were featured in the 2015 University wide Spring Show exhibition which showcases all areas of study, her designs placed third for the School of Jewelry & Metal Arts. The starting point for her jewelry designs began with understanding the overall aesthetic goal of the clothing. She created pieces that transcend traditional jewelry such as shoulder jewelry and a full arm showstopper that go hand in hand with Boussard’s clothing.
