FUSION 2012

 
This weekend FIT and Parsons, the nations top design schools, battled it out on the runway at the Fusion fashion show. This show has been going on for now 12 years, and it's kind of a big deal. Well, for me at least. I couldn't have been happier to be there, at my very first fashion show! Some past contestants include Prabal Gurung, Alexander Wand, and Chris Benz- just to  name a few. The note worthy judges this year were Victoria's Secret designer/visionary Todd Thomas, Teen Vogue's MaryKate Steinmiller, Carole Hockman Design Group's Carole Hochman, the designer Fabiola Arias, and Project Runway Alum and designer Joshua McKinley. Basically, it came down to 30 incredibly talented designers sending their blood, sweat, and tears down the runway. Here's a little taste of everything. There is no doubt in my mind that you will be seeing the names of these young, talented, and ambitious designers again. Which school do you think should have won?!

  9. i deffinetly agree with Parsons to win. I thought as i was scrolling through the photos that Parsons outfits were wearable compared to FIT as their's looked more textiles.
    Great photos!
