Parsons the New School for Design is known for producing amazing, young designers – and this year was no exception! The recent graduation show boasted many creative and innovative designs. ALL of the designers of Childrenswear and Womenswear and Menswear were exceptional. But I am just covering the Kids' Designers in this post!
I was so excited to have the opportunity to see the show live – and even more excited when the childrenswear opened up the show. The models were absolutely adorable, flaunting the wonderful designs with joy and sass. The amount of work and creativity is phenomenal; see for yourself in the photos below! And the graduating students couldn't have done all this without the expertise and guidance on the part of their Assistant Professors, Francesca Sammaritano, Susanna Moyer and the other wonderful faculty at Parsons. You can tell how much these dedicated teachers care about their students and the work.
