Tis the season of graduation presentations. While I found myself in the audience of Pratt Institute’s animation screening last night, others were dressed to the nines at the Parsons Fashion Benefit, a celebratory event for senior designers to show off their work via runway show. Hats off, the 8am classes are over, but the hard work is only beginning.
You have to admit, now is probably the scariest time to graduate. Designers are bellyflopping. Retailers are downsizing. Buyers ain’t buying. But thanks to Lisa Weiss and Debut, her downtown boutique, students might actually have a prayer at making some bank. Many pieces from the Parsons senior collection will be on sale during the week of June 16th. If you’re not in the market to buy, at least stop on by the Mulberry street store to check out the designs and show your support. These young designers need as much consumer feedback as possible!
Debut: 298 Mulberry Street (On sale starting June 16th for one week)
Thanks The New York Times!
