On May 16, 2018, the 14 graduating BFA Fashion Design students from Parsons Paris presented their capsule collections at Elysée Montmartre in Paris. Senior thesis supervisors, renowned designers Maurizio Galante and Tal Lancman, encouraged students to find their own voice and to integrate the rare know-how of some of the best artisans in France in their final projects. In this context, Parsons Paris and Institut National des Métiers d’Art (INMA) launched a unique artistic collaboration that brought together, for the first time, international design students and Paris-based masters of art. This dialogue between heritage, craftsmanship and innovation culminated in contemporary pieces that will be exhibited in Paris, as well as in New York at the 70th Parsons Benefit on May 21, 2018.
