Parsons Night out!

Maury and I were invited to attend Parsons' 10th annual Fashion Studies line debut this past Thursday.  This exciting yearly event features the designs of graduating students of Parson's AAS (Associate in Applied Science) program. These lucky and, of course, talented students will have their designs make their way into the floors of Bloomingdale's this fall. Fern Mallis, the Senior VP of IMG Fashion and founder of Fashion Week, was in attendance along with Betsey Johnson who presented Mallis the first-ever AAS Icon Award. Also honored at the event was Jenny Kao, an AAS alum who has successfully launched her own ready-to-wear womens' line since graduating.  Needless to say, Maury and I felt this class of 2009 was super innovative and you couldn't deny the Japanese influence all around. We definitely had a blast!


Let's first start off with what we wore: Gisela wore her amazing Martin Margiela Coat, Boots by Zigi Soho,t-shirt by AA, F21 Ripped Jeans, Louis Vuitton Clutch, Frederick's of Hollywood gloves. Maury wore and incredible wool/silk Louis Feraud Blazer, F21 Tank Tops, AA Zippered leggings, Guess Fringe Boots and Jimmy Choo "Ramona" bag.

And with fashion industry trailblazer Ms. Fern Mallis:

Here Maury chats with one of her favorite designers of the night, Tina So. The look she designed was probably the most popular of the night what with its Balmain/Balenciaga influence and all:

And here I am pictured with one of my faves, Calvin Bryant. Why do I think of Daphne Guiness when I see this?
