Katherine Santos

Over the week-end, thirty 19-year-old designers went head to head at the Fusion Fashion Show, which pits students from Parsons the New School for Design and the Fashion Institute of Technology against one another. This year, Thomas Todd, Mary Kate Steinmiller, Carole Hochman, Fabiola Arias, and Joshua McKinley were the industry judges, choosing Parsons as the Best Overall School. Several Fusion alums include Alexander Wang, Chris Benz, and fashion's current "it" boy, Prabal Gurung. Here are some of our favorite designs from the show.
