One of the oldest schools at Parsons (http://www.newschool.edu/Parsons) at The New School, the School of Fashion (
http://www.newschool.edu/parsons/fashion-school) ranks among the world’s premier programs. Parsons has launched the careers of illustrious designers who are synonymous with American fashion: Claire McCardell, Adrian, and Norman Norell; established industry figures Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford, and Narciso Rodriguez; and, from the new generation of global designers, Proenza Schouler, Behnaz Sarafpour, Doo Ri, Vena Cava, and Ohne Titel. At a time when success involves activism as much as innovation, Parsons melds the fundamentals of design, craft, and marketing with civic and environmental engagement.
