#ParsonsFestival in Photos

 

Every year, graduating Parsons students are given the opportunity to showcase their cutting-edge work during the highly anticipated #ParsonsFestival. From thesis exhibitions and critiques, to interactive installations, gallery openings, and fashion shows, student designs were displayed all over campus and across the city between April 25 and May 24. Special talks with some of the design world’s most compelling names like Diane von Furstenberg, Donna Karan, and David Kelley underscored the annual celebration of student artistry. Missed out on some of the action? The NEW_S has it covered. Click through the slideshow above for a recap of some of our best students’ best designs.
