"Knitwear by student Jeanette Au of New York City elicited an "ooh la la" from Jean Paul Gaultier."
San Francisco Chronicle Blog

"The collection from Jeanette Au, a Michigan native, was the most inventive. Inspired by the Ballet Russes and Léon Bakst paintings, she delivered a colorful, textural display of mohair and metallic knits with intricate 3-D patterns."
WWD

"The knitwear of hour was Jeanette Au with chunky and textured oversized mohair sweaters and dresses with intricate cable designs and metallic woven threads. The jewel tone palate of sapphire, garnet, ruby and copper was inspired by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballet Russe and injected just the right amount of whimsy that proved to be quite the crowd pleaser."

"Amid a show filled with minimalism and a dark- and neutral-heavy palette, Jeanette Au's fanciful mohair creations stood out. The knitwear grad from Grand Rapids, Mich., used Diaghilev's famed Ballets Russes and the paintings of Leon Bakst as inspiration. Sumptuous long coats and a cape worn over mohair tops, sweaters and skirts were monochromatic yet lush with texture."

"Jeanette Au’s color palette enabled her to stand out from the crowd. Her mohair metallic tops popped in deep sapphire, silver blue, platinum, copper, garnet and ruby. Sergei Diagliav’s Ballet Russe inspired the sweaters, dresses, coats and capes."
Fashion Pulse Daily

"Jeanette Au's knit collection had the crowd on their feet. Her intricate knit pieces came in a gradation of colors including sapphire, silver, copper, brown, and ruby."
International Business Times

"Inspired by beloved artwork and today’s hottest designers, Au can make magic out of materials most designers pass over."
Betty Confidential

"Jeanette Au showed romantic fashion inspired by Sergei Diagliav’s Ballet Russe and the paintings of Leon Bakst. Her collection was pure artistry as her fashions came alive in floating texture, patterns, and a rich color palette this season. Her fashions were not as wearable as some, but much more inventive. She is a designer in the true sense of the word, with her romantic sensibilities blending with modern, inventive, metallic textured fabrics."
The Staten Island Examiner

"Jeanette Au was definitely the most free-spirited in that the materials used were quite unique with vine-like detailing all up and down the coats."

"The strong colours – including sapphire, silver blue, garnet, ruby and copper – intricate 3-D patterns and textures characterising her collection are inspired not only by the nuances of the Ballets Russes’ costumes, but also by musical compositions that accompanied the corps de ballet's choreographies, such as Stravinsky’s “The Rite of Spring”.
