Fashion schools and industries are taking the fashion industry to whole new levels.

One of the channels that designers are using to get to customers is through opening and running of boutiques and fashion shops for example shop 657 in SF.
To nurture the art and creativity of design, the Academy of Art University has opened shop657, a large store in Union Square to provide real life experience to the university students and to provide them with an opportunity to show their creativeness in runway houses of New York fashion week. Besides, the store helps in displaying AAU designs and gives merchandising students a taste of the fashion world in the industry. The shop mainly focuses on selling alumni and current fashions designed by their students under local brands and others brand from New York and Los Angeles (Haugnes, 2016). Some common brands in the store include SanFrancycle, Mute by Joanne Lu, and Vipe active wear.
