All the Looks from Parsons’ Annual Fashion Show
On Wednesday at Chelsea Piers, 46 of Parsons’ top graduating fashion design students convened to present their final collections at the annual Parsons Fashion Show — the same runway where designers like Marc Jacobs, Proenza Schouler, and Cushnie et Ochs were first spotted. In addition to showing off their hard-earned collections, many of the young designers were also in the running for the “Designer of the Year” titles. At a benefit following the runway show, Harim Jung and Kaye Applewaite were named womenswear designers of the year; Yunxiang Sharon Zhou was named menswear designer of the year; and Diana Woodside was named childrenswear designer of the year. Parsons alumnus Patrick Robinson hosted the event. Click through the slideshow for a sneak peek at the next wave of creative talent entering the real world. Included: zany prints for children; translucent high collars for women; and a bounty of sheer tops, structured jackets, and tailored suits for men.
