Louis Vuitton Reconstruction 3.0 “Life is a Journey”

7:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

As an exciting conclusion to New York Fashion Week, students from Parsons The New School for Design, The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music and the Joffrey Ballet School Jazz and Contemporary program will debut LV Reconstruction 3.0: Life is a Journey, an evening of live performances featuring original music, dance and
fashion inspired by Louis Vuitton and its heritage of travel. The invitation-only performance will take place on February 14.

This cross-disciplinary initiative began this past fall, with five teams of students each consisting of a Parsons fashion designer, a New School Jazz composer, and Joffrey Ballet School choreographer. These student teams were tasked to develop a live performance consisting of an original music score, choreography, and conceptual garments. The garments are re-constructed from designer pieces that include donated Louis Vuitton runway looks by Parsons alumnus and Louis Vuitton Artistic Director Marc Jacobs. They were asked to create works that reflect the theme “Life is a Journey.”
