From color and quirk to neutrals and knits, this year’s graduate runways have it all. As an educational resource for the Fashion Institute of Technology as well as Parsons The New School for Design, we can’t help but feature their graduates’ work and feel proud that the University of Fashion offers an online video library to assist these talented graduates in reaching their goals.
On June 2, Parsons The New School for Design BFA Fashion Design graduates will be competing for internships with Kering as well as mentorship from Style.com through the “Empowering Imagination” competition. Fourteen finalists will be featured on Style.com between now and June 2. A panel of judges including representatives from Bottega Veneta, Style.com, and Saks Fifth Avenue among others will select two talented winners.
Featured above are images of Shin Young Jang’s thesis collection, Maturation (courtesy of Style.com). Jang describes her collection as consisting “of both conceptual and wearable pieces, balancing accessibility and creativity” and she credits her mother for teaching her the “importance of balancing the conceptual and the practical.” Featured below are images from Tuyen Tran’s collection, Assemble. Tran refers to her garments as “a collection of practical components for the different roles we play in life as we strive to achieve a balance between protection and expression, and a harmony between being part of a greater assembly and being ourselves.”
