“I had no training. I’d never sewn a garment in my life. I didn’t know how to draw. But I had a vision.” Red-hot red-carpet favorite Jay Godfrey gives credit to Parsons’ AAS Fashion Design program (then called Fashion Studies) for bolstering that vision with the skills, the connections, and the aesthetic awareness that together with his background in finance have taken him to the top of the fashion world in no time at all. Godfrey’s style of carefree elegance took shape in the relaxed, focused, “inspirational environment” of his Parsons classes and during a pivotal internship at Oscar de la Renta.
