The New School: Parsons Students Present Thesis Collections at petitePARADE

On October 18th, 2014 recent Parsons graduates, specializing in Children’s wear debuted their collections on the runway at Kids Fashion Week held in Bath House Studios, NYC.  Including Parsons to the roster of famous children’s wear brands was an idea introduced by Tiziana Indelicato and her two partners, who began the development of petitePARADE, Kids Fashion Week.

In May 2012 after attending Parsons Annual Benefit Fashion Show the founders were impressed by the amount of talent represented by the children’s wear collections that traditionally open the show. They immediately reached out to me, and we began working on showcasing a variety of children’s wear designers on the petitePARADE runway, all recent graduates and all former students of the children’s wear sections. 

We wish to thank everyone at petitePARADE, and look forward to many more years of collaboration!

This year, six Parsons Children’s Wear graduates were amongst the selected designers to show their collections during Kids Fashion Week:  Ashley Chang, Erica Ki, Hyun Joo Lee, Seul Lee, Danielle Molina, Cory Paglinco.
