Our Favorites from Parsons MFA Show

A few of our favorites from Parsons MFA Fashion Show

One of the first shows of New York Fashion Week was Parsons MFA show. The MFA program is officially (and rather uniquely) called Fashion, Design and Society. It’s this intentional emphasis on looking at fashion in a holistic way that sets it apart from other programs –as well as Parsons own undergraduate program. It also allows for more experimentation and risk taking than we usual see stateside (London still has it in spades, Brexit or no). Below are the designers that most caught my eye. While all different they all seemed to have employed some sort of handicraft - whether screenprinting or embroidery that created a visual texture that complimented the forms. The accompanying text is from the designer’s own statements about their work.
