Parsons School of Design did an amazing job on its 2006 line debut fashion show. Set in a beautiful old church in the LES, there was an electric charge in the air. The young designers showing their work were surrounded by friends, family, industry reps and press, who crowded the narrow street outside to get a good seat.
Models from Elite and other agencies shared the catwalk with student models. Designers to watch included Rosalina Pong whose black wool crepe mini dress with wide sleeves sent oohs and ahhs through the crowd, and Shilpa Rajpara whose jewel-toned silk top and flowing beige silk pants were stunning.
Several designers created corset tops or used them to layer and cinch. Raw, neutral tones were predominant in the first part of the show, evoking the hue of natural undyed cotton or muslin. Get ready to see some of these young talents at Unsung Designers before they become the next big thing!
