May 21, 2014. A banner reading, "YOU NEVER LEAVE PARSONS" has been hanging from the New School of Design for weeks now, commemorating (and warning?) the new graduates. Last night, the school made good of their motto and honored former student Jason Wu and fashion house HUGO BOSS at the annual Parsons Fashion Benefit, held for the first time in their University Center, located at the heart of the school’s Greenwich Village campus, New York City. The event honored the famous alumni (some of which are pictured above), but it celebrated a fresh crop, too, with a traditional runway show of the graduating class's final projects, which proved to be the highlight of the night.
