As part of the New School’s graduation festivities at the end of May, the Parsons School of Design held the first-ever street runway show in Parsons history. The event on 5th Avenue and 13th Street featured more than 250 unique looks by Parsons fashion grads. It was a spell-binding procession of glorious colors, luscious fabrics, outlandish shapes, and touchable textures. These innovative young designers challenge the haute houses of Europe.
Parsons Textiles MFA students also exhibited their work during the weekend celebration throughout campus. The festivities culminated with a Parsons benefit—a celebration of the fashion industry’s visionary leaders, and a vital source of scholarships for students.
Congratulations to the class of 2019. We at WestView News are so proud of you!
