SCHOOL OF FASHION
Looking back at the high-profile careers that Parsons has launched, the New School for Design’s dean of fashion Simon Collins has authored a new tome, “The School of Fashion: 30 Parsons Designers,” focusing on major American designers, like Donna Karan, who graduated from this creative institution. Speaking with WWD, Collins observed, “When I first joined Parsons in 2008, I was knocked out by the wealth of our alumni. There were stories I really wanted to learn about.” Published by Assouline, the book offers short features about their time at Parsons and whimsical, Proustian-style Q&As.
