• The 69th Parsons Benefit

    The annual Parsons Benefit is one of the highlights of New York’s fashion calendar. For nearly 70 years the benefit has showcased new talent and celebrated leaders in the industry. Now a New School collaboration between Parsons School of Design and the College of Performing Arts, the Parsons Benefit introduces the next generation of creative talent through musical performance and the presentation of selected end-of-year fashion student collections and awards.

    The benefit is an opportunity to honor members of the greater design and performance community who exemplify our school's mission while raising scholarship funds to support students throughout The New School.

    Past honorees include Jason Wu, Hugo Boss, Reed Krakoff, Francisco Costa, Diane von Furstenberg, Marc Jacobs, and LVMH ● Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. This year’s event honors Neiman Marcus and the presenting sponsor is Maybelline New York.
