“New,” it is what the fashion world is all about, right? The industry is constantly moving, changing, and reinventing itself, so when we saw that Fashionista.com had the scoop on this year’s Parsons womens-wear ‘Designer of the Year’ candidate collections we had to share with you.
In the past designers like Marc Jacobs and Proenza Schouler have won the coveted title. The 13 students aren’t just design geniuses, but they have also held coveted internships like Nominee Renea Lariviere who interned for Proenza Schoulder.
Student Harim Jung is already celebrating her win for the Kering “Empowering Imagination” award—we can only imagine what it would be like to win both of the prestigious competitions (Good luck Harim!).
Joseph Sing tells Fashionista.com about the inspiration for his collection:
“I was amazed how the Spice Girls were a group but at the same time they were five individual styles,” he explained “This is what lead me to research more about fashion and how you can express yourself through your own style.”
We have our favorites, but these students’ designs are so amazing, that we think they all deserve to win. Who is your favorite?
